Looking For A Comfortable Bed. Any Suggestions?

Looking For A Comfortable Bed. Any Suggestions?

My husband has a hard time getting comfortable in bed consequently he doesn't sleep well. Does anybody have a good suggestion for a mattress/bed? We're hoping a different matress might help.

I bought a profile bed for my husband and he was never comfortable in it. Recently bought a new mattress foam and because it is much firmer he finds it easier to lie on and get in and out of.

I usually get out of bed a little before midnight because of "restless leg" problems. I then go downstairs and sleep on my exercise mat on the living room floor. It is easier to change positions on this hard surface than it is in our bed. After three or four hours of this I can once again go to bed. Not the best way to spend the night, but I'm not sure what else to do.

For me the answer was to get twin adjustable beds. Costly but worth it. I can raise my head and legs to any position that's comfortable. . I sleep on a hard surface ,my husband prefers the soft side I can lower or raise the bed to get in and out. If i am having movement ot tremors my husband isn't disturbed since he has his own separate mattress, requires extra long twin size sheets...

We bought a profile bed some years ago but he was never comfortable on that. He found it difficult to get in and out of bed. The height of the bed too is important. It should be the same height as the distance of the crook at the back of the knee to the floor. His feet should be able to touch the floor when sitting on the bed. We changed the mattress to a foam mattress and now have less of a problem he's sleeping better too!

We just went from a waterbed to a new mattress with mini-coils in it. It makes it much easier for him to get in & out of bed, but we had to add a 2 inch memory foam topper for me to be comfortable.
