My husband is having a problem rolling over in bed. I was wondering if anyone knew of any kind of device to assist him.

I had to hire nighttime caregivers for this as well as him awakening anywhere from 7-15 times per night need various things (water, roll over, bathroom).

No, I know of nothing else.

Yes, I just read about this and it sounds very interesting...not affiliated with this company in any way, have no idea how well it works if at all, etc. etc. etc.

I do wish I had known about this bed when my great aunt was alive, I think it would have been a godsend for everyone.

I've also read about bed rails, as well as sleeping on a large towel and using the edge to pull yourself over....I guess as long as you were on the towel no matter how you rolled, this might work....we just try everything and see what works for each of us :)

We found that "slippery" sheets and pajamas (silk,satin, nylon) were a big help.
