post double masectomy - how can my mom get up from bed?

i'm in the hospital with my mother right now. She's having a hard time getting up from the bed/chair here -- so we're concerned with how she'll do it at home without all the rails.

She is one day post-op, we know she'll feel better every day- but any advice on how to get up easier?

Should she try to sleep in the recliner instead of bed?

Any other words of wisdom are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
