I have just read on another thread about waiting for an ambulance to be picked up after a fall.
I am no stranger to that situation as my H had many falls and even in nonCovid times the wait could be Two hours or more.
In the middle of the night it is no fun.
One night when my H obviously wasn’t hurt, just couldn’t get up, a light bulb went off in my head.
We had a blowup single mattress with an electric pump.
I fetched it down and laid it at the side of him and managed to roll him onto it, I plugged it in and even supporting his weight it slowly rose up.
When fully inflated, he was ably to sit up with my help and then swing his legs over the edge and stand up.
After that I kept it in the room he slept in and used it several times.
I hasten to add I would never had done this unless
I was sure he wasn’t hurt.
The mattress was about £60 and worth it’s weight in gold.
