Tips for Getting Out of Bed
- Bend knees up, feet flat on the bed.
- Roll onto your side toward the edge of the bed by letting the knees fall to that side. Reaching across with the top arm. Turn your head and look in the direction you are rolling.
- Lower feet from the bed as you push with your arms into a sitting position.
