When it comes to selecting the perfect bed for your residents, there’s a lot that needs to be taken into account. With that in mind, below we’re going to delve a little deeper into what it takes to find the ideal bed that encompasses everything that your residents could possibly need in a sleep space. 

Beds & Back Pain

Each day, at least 10 hours are spent in bed. That’s a big chunk of time to be spent lying in one place, which is why it’s so important that your nursing home has the very best beds on offer. Sometimes residents can spend all day in bed, depending on how they’re feeling, making finding the right bed even more crucial.

On an annual basis, 40 percent of the population will suffer from back problems, the majority of these cases tend to be reported in seniors. That’s because as we get older, our bodies change and our bones and muscles aren’t as strong as they once were. Conditions like spinal stenosis and osteoporosis don’t help and make older people even more prone to back problems.

A good bed, that provides the correct amount of support and comfort, can help to alleviate back pain and other associated problems. That’s why, when it comes to selecting the perfect bed for your residents, it’s so important to get it right. There are an array of designs to choose from, from Divan beds to profiling beds, it's just a case of selecting the right one for each patient's needs. As well as, of course, the right mattress.
