Ignore this - I thought I'd got back to the right place. Have now re-posted under Health!
Mind you - Mother seems to think I am being unreasonable not volunteering to drive over every night to help her into bed. It's only half an hour or so's drive - and of course while I'm there..... ! Bad daughter!
My mother has very limited walking ability, and recently this has been made worse by a blood clot ( knee to thigh ). The offending leg is huge - and very heavy and she can't lift it into bed. NHS have given her a handle to haul herself in and she has a strap. But the leg is too heavy.
I understand there are beds which lower to get in and the raise to help getting up.
Has anyone any experience of them? What sort? And where to get them? I thought I'd try the Red Cross next week but no real idea where to start.
