Well, my mother has taken a tumble out of her bed, resulting in a strained neck, visit to X-ray etc. No permanent damage, thank goodness, but I'm trying to decide what to do for the best. She needs to ge up several (well more than several) times a night, so a bed rail on both sides wouldn't work. I was thinking of getting a rail that fits on one side - if it's sturdy enough, it could also help her to get into position on the bed. However, I have been reading a leaflet on the Independant Living site which seems to suggest that every other alternative should be explore first, due to potential dangers. I could get the bed moved to one wall, but I'm also concerned about her getting trapped between the wall and the bed. So has anyone fitted a bed rail, or chosen not to fit one?
