Bathing and washing can be painful and difficult for someone suffering from arthritis. An occupational therapist can pinpoint areas where difficulties may arise and suggest simple but effective solutions. Rails on the bathroom wall are useful, and rails on the edge of the bath are vital as soon as getting in and out proves painful. A non slip rubber mat on the bottom of the bath is a wise safety measure. Taps that have push up and down controls are easier than ones that have to be turned. If you have problems with your wrists and shoulders, a back brush may be awkward to use, opt instead for a back scrubbing strap.
If you have a small kitchen, you don’t have to try to fit all your small utensils in a drawer. You can use ceramic jars, miniature milk cans or anything that you like to store your utensils. Put all your wooden spoon in one and the metal utensils in an other near the stove. It’s simple and saves space. You can choose the colors and style you like to make the most out of your kitchen. Give yourself the opportunity to look at all the kitchen accessories that are available and start having fun in your kitchen.
Next type of a snorer is the more severe one, we call this the ( I have a cold). You know the sound when someone is really clogged up and sick with a cold and they are constantly blowing their nose?

Well this is the time your kicking becomes abusive, you have had it you can’t take it anymore so you begin to start kicking with more force. They don’t know because they are off in a deep sleep probably dreaming about how much they are loved by us. Well we start kicking and with teeth grinding we growl (roll over! ) and still nothing, this is when we absolutely begin to break the law.
Every day I scan the skies for the dark cloud of doom just over the horizon, yet the winds must be blowing it somewhere else – where, I don’t know? I watch the news for their landfalls, but am disappointed every day. I was sure I would see bodies floating face down in the muck. Homeless pets abandoned and all that.
This tool should be placed in the kitchen cabinet since all the housewives, chefs will find it easy to do their job. It also saves a lot of time since opening the can manually is very difficult. It is very harmless, and even children can open the can with the help of this tool.
In order to keep him active on his computer and crosswords we bought larger size writing utensils and an extra large button keyboard. We were also informed that fine motor skills would be difficult so purchased an under counter can opener and an electric jar opener so that he could cook independently. It was also brought to our attention that a crock pot would be the easiest way to cook for him and a food processor instead of a cutting board. The other thing we did is bought him a cell phone so that he could use the speaker and could take it around with him as he goes about the house.
And the most innovative of us all are our kids. If you’ve ever noticed them when they play… they can take the most common item in the house and turn it into a toy.
Another tip I heard on the radio this morning was turning your fridge temperature up the day of the storm to get it extra cool, that way if you loose power it might stay cool longer. Try to open the door of the fridge as minimally as possible to keep the items cool.
