When my mum was in hospital for a long time - she used to slide down the bed sometimes as she was in bed all the time .
We were always wary of trying to lift her up the bed as she was so frail and had so many wires/machines taped onto her.
Nurses showed us what to do - to save her any pain and also my daughter and I any anxiety at hurting her - my daughter took one side of the sheet and me the other and then we used to lift her up without having to hold her. Saved us also having to stoop over the bed to get a hold of her.
It worked and then we were able to then fix the sheets and her pillows.
