If insurance won't cover it and you are at all handy or know someone who is, you can make one yourself.

A piece of Metal piping cut to the length desired
2 rubber tips such as are on the bottom of a walking stick or cane.
1 sheet of thick plywood or such like, with a hole the diameter of the pipping cut in one end (This goes under the mattress with the piping through it.)
The mattress will hold the plywood in place.
A couple of clamps or strapping to hold the pole in place upright.

My friend made this herself for her mother. She is very handy with tools and figuring out how things work. They get back from their holiday over the weekend and I will let you know how it worked for them.
