Anthea followed AskSARAs advice to have an Occupational therapy assessment via her local social services. The therapist assessed her in her home and recommended:
1. Bed raisers, to ensure that the bed was at an appropriate height for sitting onto and standing up from.
2. A manual leg lifter for Anthea to raise her legs to the height of the mattress.
Anthea can now get in and out of her bed with relative ease and hasn't slept on her settee for months.
