“My parents are over the moon with their bed; Dad says it’s the best bed he’s ever slept in”
Both my parents have serious health problems that affect their mobility and finding the right bed for them has been a nightmare. After 3 different beds in 3 years, I was at the end of my tether when I came across Care to Comfort. Within a few hours of making the first phone call, we were on our way to the showroom in Dublin, and Yvonne kindly stayed after hours to accommodate us driving from Fermanagh. My parents were delighted to be able to try out so many different types of mattresses, and Yvonne was able to read their needs in seconds. This is the benefit of dealing with genuine experts.
They decided on an extra long and vertically adjustable bed to accommodate my dad’s height and arthritis. A grab rail and and raised footboard was added to help my mum’s stability. After the bed was installed, my mum decided she wanted to add the vertical adjust function to her side of the bed as well, and Martin kindly came back out and changed this for them. Now both sides of the bed can be fully adjusted in every way imaginable. It is no exaggeration to say that it has changed their lives: instead of relying on my mum to help him in and out of bed, or to stuff pillows under his head and feet, my dad can now get in and out of bed or adjust his head and feet with just a remote control. This peace of mind along with her new comfy soft mattress means my mum is getting the best sleep in years, which helps her own health.
I didn’t think I’d find a business in Ireland that could custom make a bed to please two of the fussiest people on the island, but Yvonne and Martin have managed it. My parents are over the moon with their purchase and are showing it off to any relatives or neighbours who call round. I rang my dad the other day and he said it is “the best bed I have ever slept in”. The long search for the perfect bed is finally over!
