My dad has alzheimers and sometimes he forgets how to walk and my mom is by herself alot of the time. Where she had to lift him up under his arms were getting to sore for her to touch not to mention the toll it was taking on my moms back. I purchase this belt about two weeks ago and she loves it. Gives her handles on my dad that she didnt have before, and you know anything with a handle is better than not. So two weeks in, she has been able to get him up by herself without pain to either one of them, Kutos to who came up with this.
