When this problem started to appear in my life, I looked for a solution to make it easier for my caregiver to turn me around during the night when I am not at home.

I found a tube shaped sheet that was suitable for what I needed. It is called the EasySlide and it allowed me to turn around in bed independently as long as possible. Later I couldn’t do it independently anymore, but now it helps my caregiver to turn me around in bed much easier and without using much force. I simply take it with me when I travel and it allows me to sleep as good as possible when travelling.
