Elderly Challenge - Observation 3

I observed that many elderly people have difficulty in getting out of bed as they are not as fit as they used to be. They have to either rely on someone else to help them or go through the trouble of accomplishing the task. Therefore, I came up with a design for the interior of homes (refer to holiday homework 3) to help the elderly get out of bed without the help of another person so when no one is around to help, the elderly can get themselves out of bed with ease.

As you can see, the bed is elevated high above the floor so the elderly can get seriously injured if they fall while trying to get out of bed and that since the side of the bed that we sleep on is horizontal, the elderly will have a difficult time getting out of bed as they have to lift up their upper body for a relatively large degree first.
