Mom will sleep well on the well-made hybrid mattress. Since it’s a hybrid, it has both memory foam (with zoned support that’s softer under the shoulders and firmer around the hips, waist, and lower back) and also resilient springs to provide lift and support. The top layer is made of breathable foam to increase airflow, which means Mom won’t wake up hot and sweaty.
