Hi, My husband is the parky, he has fallen out of bed a lot more just recently.
2 nights ago it was the worst one he's had, cut his head, and has really hurt his hip.
I can't understand why he sleeps on the very edge of the bed, I've changed the mattress twice since he was diagnosed, it becomes very slanted and he just rolls out, but always lands on his head!!!!!!
I thought about getting a side rail, but have read how dangerous they can be? Especially as he fights in his sleep, and punches, and swings his arms about.
I have seen the light Weight side guards for children's beds, but they don't look very strong to me especially for an adult.
I have duvets and pillows on the floor next to his side, these can soften the blow, but I would really like to put something in place to stop him falling out.
Parkinsons is a cruel thing, he can't turn over in bed very well, and now he's falling out, I wish there was a cure for this horrible disease, I would be so grateful for any advice, or gadgets that anyone else has managed to come up with for this problem. Xxx
