Hi All, My elderly disabled mother has been really suffering for quite some time & I see her getting weaker & frailer each day. It breaks my heart & despite being a grown man, I cannot stop the tears flowing full force as I feel so redundant as she is in so much pain & distress. She has a number of health issues & has extreme difficulty walking or moving & also has very bad osteoporosis/osteoarthritis in various parts of her body. Lately, her right shoulder has now completely seized up & they cannot operate as she is just too old & will not survive any operation. Because of this, she has great difficulty sleeping comfortably as her body aches all over but her shoulder & legs are the worst. I need to buy her a new bed so she can sleep downstairs now but I just do not know what is the best type of mattress to get for her in particular & generally for the elderly/disabled. I was going to go for just memory foam (same as Latex?) but have heard they get too hot & the standards/quality vary enormously. Went to a few shops but did not really get much help from the sales people & googling & trying to learn about mattresses has just got be confused somewhat! I know there are combination spring & memory foam mattresses now but do not know if they are actually any good or just marketing hype to hike the price up! I cannot take my mother to the shops to try any out as she is just too frail. If anyone can help or give advice I sure would be mightily grateful. Many Thanks, Suave!
