Dressing Yourself With Limited Mobility.
Dressing yourself with limited mobility may initially seem like a daunting task. However, using something as simple as a dressing stick will help you massively. A dressing stick is simply a stick with one or more grip hooks. It may have one at either end or only one and these are used to pull the items of clothing in place as you would have done normally with your hands.
Staying independent is more important than every with the acute shortage of social-care provision. You may face a long wait to access help at home, whether you are looking for help from a local authority or a private company. Sadly the demand outweighs supply.
As an adult dressing ourselves becomes an intuitive action and it’s only when we have an injury, have had an operation or lose mobility that it becomes a challenge. Dressing yourself with limited mobility gets easier with practice and the dressing stick, simple as it is, is such a help.
