How to keep arms from falling off recliner during sleep?

Family member is handicapped and sleeps in a recliner so that he can breathe. At night, his arms slide off the arms of the recliner causing pain. Any suggestions as to how to keep his arms on the armrest? Velcro won't work for this application. I need something that he can easily undo himself with each arm because he can't reach across.

Answer: 
Put a tall piece of furniture on either side of his chair. Slide a dresser or an end table of the appropriate height right up to the chair so that his arms- even if they slide off will just rest against the dresser. Medical supply stores do sell foam things with a shallow groove down the center, but they elevate the arms strangely- and the entire cushion can slide off as well.

How to fall asleep straight away when you lie in bed?

No matter what time i go to bed or how tired i am, i always fall asleep 2 hours later.

Answer: 
To sleep better just relax and switch off, if you can. If you are having trouble switching off at bedtime some light exercise (for example, push ups or sit ups) at bedtime often helps you to relax, unwind and switch off and that often improves your sleep. Strenuous exercise at bedtime is likely to ruin your sleep. Common sleep aids include Chamomile tea, 5-HTP, Melatonin and Valerian Root. Sleep enhancing foods are supposed to include warm milk, turkey, cherries, oatmeal, bananas, wine and others as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22sleep+enhancing+foods%22&fr=ush-ans You can see further tips in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22how+to+fall+asleep+and+stay+asleep%22&fr=ush-ans which tells you "how to fall asleep and stay asleep".

If there is a way to get health insurance please let me know, I can't wait until 2014.

You can purchase individual plans from an insurance company that operates in your state. There are insurance agents that sell the plans from all of those companies and they can help you find the best plan for your situation and budget. There is no charge using an agent.

These plans have limits to the coverage and are generally not as comprehensive as the individual plans but the premiums are usually lower.

You also could try throwing up by sticking your fingers down your throat. The goal here is to clean your body out.

You can also try some cranberry juice.

How to easily swallow a pill (or several more ways to take it)?

Whenever I attempt to swallow a pill (with a glass of water) I end up coughing and choking. I just can't handle it.
What are other ways to take a pill?

Answer: 
I have the same problem, and even had to swallow these big capsules that had me spitting them back out. It's easier (at least for me since I don't like water) to use juice or something else to drink. Put the pill on the back of your tongue and quickly take a big mouthful of your liquid of choice. Then, the quicker the better, tilt your head back and swallow as fast as you can. Don't even think about it, just do it quick and simple. Trust me, it works. Hope I helped.
