My Dad suffers from neuropathy in his hands & feet. Yes, we’ve seen doctors. LOTS of doctors. It’s not diabetes-related or anything fixable like that. We’ve tried all the things, and nothing is helping, so he’s living with it. Not fun, but seeing as he has no other options, he makes do.
One of his primary issues is that his feet get really cold at night. We’ve tried special heat-retaining socks, they help, but not a ton. One thing that definitely doesn’t help is that as he turns in his sleep, his blankets get loose and uncover his feet. If someone is around to make his bed really well every morning, we can get the blankets to stay by tucking them in really tight. Problem is, he can’t do that by himself (neuropathy also makes his hands weak & not very dextrous) so I’m trying to figure out what we might be able to do to keep his blankets on his bed at night. It has to be something he can manage to do in the morning when he makes his bed, or something we can install that only needs taking off when it’s laundry day (he has folks to help him with that.)
I gotta think this isn’t a unique problem. Anyone got any ideas?
