Washing and keeping clean

Here are some tips that occupational therapists have suggested for helping with washing and cleaning.

Use long handled sponges, toe wipers and cream applicators for your back, legs and feet.

An inflatable hairwash basin can be really good for a carer or family member to wash someone’s hair when lying on a bed or it is difficult to sit or lean over.

Use a non-slip mat in the bath.
