Equipment for Parent that can no longer stand or walk

Hi all - my mom has Corticobasel Degeneration, which is a Parkinson like disease.  She is no longer able to support herself and we need to equip her house for this next stage of her life.  In addition to a hospital bed and wheelchair, what other equipment do you recommend? I believe she needs some sort of Hoyer lift, but no idea where to start? Are there any training videos or resources that tell you what you need to do to take care of a person that can't stand or walk, but isn't bedridden yet? Best way to toilet? Any advice is helpful.  Thank you.

Getting a personal caregiver

Getting a personal caregiver would be the best option for me. I also looking for new equipment for my mom in Baltimore, but the presence of a caregiver is still the best.
