              Bedroom

  • Avoid injury by eliminating obstacles: Rearrange furniture, hide wires to avoid tripping over them. Remove area rugs.

  • Try different heights for easiest, safest transferring. A high bed is easier to sit down and stand up from edge without help. One too low places a strain on the back of helpers changing your position or during transfers.

When transferring, lock wheels, or place bed against wall.

  • If mattress is too soft: Have plywood placed between mattress and box spring will help make lifting yourself more easily to a sitting position,

  • A wedge pillow can support your back when sitting up.

Pillows can support an arm or shoulder to maintain proper body alignment.
