My husband slipped out of a chair and was unable to get back up. I called 999 for help; the lady operator who answered was brilliant. She went through everything with me, explained what would happen and that it may take an hour before the paramedics would arrive.
In fact they came within half an hour. The two paramedics asked me what had happened and checked my husband was not hurt. They asked for a towel and used this to pull him back up.
