Anyone think that it would be good to post details of things that have helped our Alzheimer's patients, and what may help others? Often it is difficult to know where to look for things. Example: Safe bed From the time she had an accident on assessment at the local hospital, Jan couldn't sleep in a bed - she would simply fall or climb out and injure herself. For two years we had her room at the home padded with mattresses, and all furniture moved out. She crawled around all night long and slept only from exhaustion. She continually damaged her head by collision. We found the supplier of children's playground equipment and came up with a bespoke solution to pad part of her room more permanently. The care standards people wouldn't permit it. Quite by accident the manager of Jan's home found a bed, made in Germany, that is hugely sturdy and comfortable, with high sides. At first I was alarmed, because it looked like a cage [more like an oversized child's cot, actually] but I grew to see how it might help Jan. It was ordered and has transformed Jan's life and she sleeps well now. I feel so much better about leaving her each day. The bed cost the best part of £4,500 but the home paid for it. If anyone ever wants details of such a bed, please let me know.
