Client Feedback – Dementia Bed
Elaine was looking for a bed suited to meeting her mums requirements. Her mum, Florence is 81 years old, frail mobility and uses a walking frame. She was in hospital and Elaine was hoping to bring her home but had fallen from her existing bed 3 times in past month. Florence gets up in middle of night so needs to be able to get in / out of bed without obstruction of rails at foot end.
Through qualification we deemed that the Dementia low bed would be best suited. We were able to then deliver the bed within a few weeks of order, which allowed Florence to return home. Since then, Elaine has become her mums primary carer and they have moved in together.

The aim of the Dementia Bed is to make the user feel safe and secure and to also minimise the risk of falling. There is padding on the headboard, the side rails and on the footboard of the bed, this is to reduce the chances of the user sustaining an injury from knocking their head or their body on a hard surface. It offers motorised profiling and height adjustment in an attractive package. The Residential is designed to compliment the aesthetics of the room setting, whilst still offering features found on professional nursing beds. Get Details >
