    Help with getting out of bed.

    I am struggling to get out of bed and all the aids I have looked at are for pulling on. Even Social Services can't find one to suit me.
    I need to push against to get me to a sitting position from my side as I am unable to pull (shoulder problems). I can't lay on my back either. All aids I have investigated are for pulling.
    What makes it even more difficult is the fact that we have a super kingsize slatted bed with portable drawers underneath that I have nowhere else to put.
    I am unwilling just to keep on ordering only to find that the aid is useless for my needs and in most cases they can't be returned or if they can it is at my own expense which will cost a small fortune.
    Any ideas please.
