"If the quality of someone's life could be improved by acquiring a hospital-type bed (type that allows for elevated back and knees) and that person cannot afford to pay for it, is there help available to acquire the bed from somewhere? We are an elderly couple in Georgia. Thanks for your help."

Answer:  If there is a medical need for a hospital bed, a doctor can write a prescription and Medicare will pay for some or all of the cost.  Another option would be to contact Friends of Disabled Adults and Children to see if they can help.  They can be reached at 770-491-9014.
