I find showering one of the hardest things to do with PPMS, my left leg has close to zero control, I worry everytime I’m in the shower, but I am greatful to have a step in shower with hand rails. My landlord put that in for me as we only had a bath. So, showering and drying are difficult. good idea about the terrycloth robe though.
My fathers has PPMS we don’t have a walk in shower and at first it was challenging but with some basic adaptations we made showering very easy. We got a bathroom chair and a house wheelchair to transfer him into the bathroom. We use a BANANA BOARD to help transfer him from his wheelchair to bathroom chair.
