Aids to daily living
Having needed hip replacement just prior to lockdown and surgeons now unwilling to operate due to wounds on t'other leg my range of movement is rubicubes. Having been a care worker with many different categories I'm used to doing care plans so I did one on me.
Biggest need how to carry on independent living, I'm married but wife unable to help.
Really long shoe horn as in waist high, no bending where I can't bend and putting on shoes taking ages filled with OWS. It also has hook on other end, off come socks nae dragging foot or standing on sock end and pull.
Sock aid simple but it so works.
Grabbers in most rooms
My hip makes knee so sore and at last I found a good knee support that works.
Going away a blow up cushion to make chairs right height and best of all a toilet seat raiser as is it me or are most public toilets at kiddies heights. Lowering and raising is so sore and at worst of times almost impossible.
There are others but what do others use that could also help others. Even simple things like lower foldable step that's great if doorstep feels like stepping into grand canyon
