Changes in physical condition and ability sometimes lead to imbalance or instability if assistive devices such as canes or walkers aren’t yet called for minimize the risk of falling while getting out of bed by using body weight to support desired movements

Try: #make sure the area around the bed is free of clutter keep a clear path from the bed to the door and make sure the path from the bed is wide enough to be walked easily #to rise from bed roll onto one side and swing legs over the side of the bed let gravity do most of the work the weight of the legs will help the body come to a sitting position #once seated upright make sure feet are flat on the floor and about as far apart as the shoulders sit for a moment in that position #rise to stand and stay standing still for a moment before beginning to walk standing still for a moment may allow time to gain balance or stability before beginning to walk
