Mother 94 with dementia cannot get into bed without help. Any suggestions?
She can sit on the edge of the bed with her feet on the floor. She can't lean over and get her legs up onto the bed. I have to lift her legs and because she is not far enough in the center of the bed, it is hard to lift her. Talk about dead weight. Her bed is not that high, she doesn't have the strength to lift her legs. She still uses the bathroom, so when she gets up in the middle of the night (maybe 2 or 3 times) She calls me (I have a baby monitor in my bedroom) and I have to help her get back into bed. I am exhausted not to mention the pain in my back. Any suggestions??????
