Was wondering if anyone can help, My granddad has PSP and diabetes, and has trouble at night sleeping.
Basically, because of poor circulation his feet get cold in the night, he alleviates this problem by bending his legs and straightening them, however he is now finding it very hard to move them after an hour or so lying down and calls either me or my grandma to move them for him. I guessing his inability to move his legs is due to his PSP. He is able to walk aided at the moment and once a week I straighten his legs and back on a massage table which helps with his mobility.
I did buy him a circulation booster its an electrical device that he puts his feet on that increases blood flow, and he uses this once in the morning and when he goes to bed, but after a few hours in bed the effects wear off.
Is there any advice anyone can give me so he can get a better nights sleep?
