Finding the ideal adjustable bed solution has given Paul the comfort, rest and independence he needs.
Veronica Monaghan’s son Paul has multiple disabilities that restrict his ability to move freely and independently. This includes a spinal rod that makes it particularly difficult for him to turn over while sleeping.
Veronica and her husband Des would get up at night to assist Paul. This was a process that not only diminished everyone’s sleep but eventually began to take a toll on Veronica’s back. They knew they needed to find a better solution.
The Monaghans’ search took them on a tour of medical suppliers, disability product suppliers and various furniture showrooms around Ireland. They found similar variations of adjustable hospital beds that weren’t attractive, couldn’t accommodate Paul’s 6-foot height or included side rails that made it difficult for Veronica to reach over to assist her son.
Finally, one day during a routine visit, Paul’s occupational therapist in Limerick told Veronica about The Natural Sleep Company. The Monaghans called the company that day and arranged to visit the Natural Sleep showroom in Ballylanders.
During their visit, they discovered the Cre adjustable bed, which The Natural Sleep Company could make in a four-foot width to give Paul more space and make it possible for him to turn over by himself at night. The added space also gives Veronica easier access to her son when he’s feeling unwell or needs her assistance.
Paul also struggled with body heat problems with his old mattress. The sales representative showed the family the memory foam mattress option, which would aid his circulation, as well as alleviate pressure on Paul’s body to improve his comfort while sleeping.
Before they left the showroom, the Monaghans purchased Paul’s four-foot divan Cre adjustable bed. The sales rep even helped them complete the paperwork to reclaim VAT.
Paul and his parents saw incredible benefits of the adjustable bed from the first night. Paul was instantly more comfortable and got better sleep. He no longer suffers from heat issues or pressure on his back, cramping or back sores. He can adjust himself and turn over on his own during the night.
With the handset and no side rails, he’s even able to get in and out of the bed by himself, which gave him a new level of independence he didn’t have before. In addition to Paul’s comfort, the adjustable bed has meant less getting up at night for Veronica and Des. When they do go to assist Paul, they can do so more easily and comfortably, with no added strain on Veronica’s back.
“I cannot recommend The Natural Sleep Company enough”
Veronica credits their attention and service with helping her family experience greater sleep and improved health with an ideal adjustable bed solution that really worked for their needs.
“I would recommend their adjustable beds to anybody with a disability or to the elderly. I think it is a fantastic bed.”
The family was so impressed with the bed that they purchased a second one for their holiday home in West Cork.
