Getting up from the floor

by June
(LaCrosse WI)

My 96 year old mother has slipped out of bed and onto the floor when getting up during the night to use the bathroom.

Once on the floor, she cannot get herself up.

She has balance problems and doesn't have the strength to get herself up.

Any ideas about equipment or ways she can get herself up without calling someone or First Alert???
