Re lifting legs up onto a bed
I think it depends on how heavy the client;s legs are as to whether kneeling on the floor is safe for the carer .Half kneeling to lift the legs is better than bending the back if no other options are available. However a height adjustable bed, manual or electric leg lifters or a hoist with leg support sling would be better options
