My husband is falling on average 4 times in 24 hours, I really struggle to get him up. I have an elk cushion but it's not very easy getting him on it, I've only managed it three times in 12 months, it's next to useless for one person if you don't fall in the right place or position. I struggle with heaving ,pushing and a manual handling belt. Today I can't lift one arm and I know my back is weak. Can I ask how others manage ?? Do you call an ambulance and if so do you call 999, if he's not hurt I wonder if this is acceptable and what the reaction would be to several times a day and in the night!! I'm at my wits end. X
