My Mom had a stroke in 2016 and has since been diagnosed with Dementia. In the past 7 years. She has gone through 14 mattresses and none have been comfortable. She lacks muscle strength and always states “Someone else has slept in the bed and there is a hole I can’t get out of”. Her weight ranges from 140 to 170

We have tried:
New mattreaaes
Used mattresaes
Memory foam
Traditional
Toppers
Box sorings
Platforms
Electric platforms
Firm yoga Matt underneath fitted sheet

She has lived in 5 places and been to numerous hospitals and rehabs. And has asked them to continuously switch out her mattress and she isn’t satisfied.

I would guess that the stroke has led to her being unable to move much when she is in bed, but she is blaming the mattress

Im not sure there is much you can do.
Sorry xx
