We've been thinking about satin sheets, or satin pajamas too. Thomas 'sticks' to the sheets, making it harder to move. I understand the night time trips and it's dangers and stresses. Luckily we have an ensuite, so moved the bed so he's lined up with the door. That's a little better. His doctor suggested taking his levadopa when he wakes at night and it seemed to help. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day.

That's interesting, Katherine. We may at some point soon move downstairs to our son's bedroom, which would be en suite. My sister sent me this link - it may be of interest x http://skhandling.co.uk/products/slide-sheet-systems/satinsheet/

Rebelmouse.com is pretty cool. A nice aggregation of links from various sources. Still have to tame the mouse a bit, but looks fun.

Hi Fiona, Good for you and Martin. Holding on to a job is so important to identity (and of course, knowing you can buy food and other necessities is also important!), so I'm glad Martin is able to do so. My husband is an electrician, diagnosed in 2006, and is unable to work. It took every ounce of his strength to keep working the last two years, and finally in 2012, he had to go quit, as it was not only impossible physically, but was becoming dangerous. There is a point when quality of life no longer balances with work. Take care  of yourselves, and I've added you to my list of PD blogs to visit.
