Just a tip to anyone purchasing an electric adjustable bed. It might be possible to get this type of bed free from your council - get the OT in and get assessed if like my husband he needed help getting in bed and I had lots of problems helping him so much I was having problems with my back. When he sat on the bed he could not get his self in far enough so i had to pull him over by his shorts, then because he sleeps a bit upright I had to push him up the bed, The OT came out a few times with suggestions so the last time I asked her would she like to try to get him in bed, she couldnt so I said a hospital bed would be better as it can go so low that he could get into bed easier then highter for me to help him without straining, the head part raises so again was helpful raising his upper half and the bed raises slightly near the knees which is great for his back. We tried one out and then the OT asked for funding for us and hey ho we got a bed and its great.
If you dont ask you wont get, and even if you go off and buy a bed at least your OT should be able to let you try one inone of their independant living centres first.
The matress also are very comfortable hard but pressure cushioned or you can buy your own
