Sleep Number Bed

Recommended Posts

Do any of you have a sleep number bed with the adjustable base? My wife and have had a sleep number for the last 15 years and like it but are considering upgrading to the adjustable base. Looking for reviews and experience with this type of bed as it relates to Parkinson’s.

Thanks.

Dave

I heard Sleep number beds  are very expensive.   I was thinking of getting a memory foam bed with the adjustable base for mom.   If you can afford it I think it's a good idea and fun too. :lol:

My wife and I decided not to purchase the adjutable frame. It’s too expensive $3,000+. That part of the purchase has a no return policy. Way too much money to spend on something you don’t even know if you’ll like. As for the sleep number mattress, we will be buying a new one. We’ve had ours for 15+ years and with the exception with the edge of the bed on my side, it’s like the day we bought it. The newer bed has a better design where I will be less likely to wear out the edge. I sleep walk/sit on the side of the bed, hence I’ve worn out my side of the bed. We’re giving our current sleep number to our oldest daughter.

That's something you may need down the road so it can wait I suppose. I'm just afraid of my mom falling off the bed when it's reclined because she has poor balance.  Otherwise I think it's pretty useful to have.

My wife and I purchased a sleep number bed about ten years ago. My sister had one and she really liked it. Since then she upgraded to the one with the adjustable base and she said that it was a big difference in helping her better half with snoring at night. May I suggest trying or renting a hospital bed first, I know no one likes the idea but I felt so safe and relaxed when I was in the hospital .  Doug
