A thought…local MDA Association folks may have equipment that can be borrowed, and any purchases might be deductible at tax time….
Hi @jakedduck1 From personal experience I would suggest you do a fair bit of homework before investing in a Hoyer lift. We finally had one through hospice that was quite solid and well built. However along the way we encountered several cheap, to me unsafe, rickety, varieties, which I truly believed were downright dangerous. A lift chair often can be of help at these times as well. We also found that an adjustable hospital bed was a huge help in helping to manage transfers.
Continued good luck with your insurance appeals as well! When I tallied up all my wife's bills, etc. over her years of being sick I found I had appealed on average three times on every one!
Keep up the good fight!
