      Showering can be a challenge when you are disabled.  There are shower chairs, and hand held shower heads that can help. But, do you know any other tips that can make showering easier? What helps you?

      On another site, I saw a suggestion to get a real terrycloth robe to dry after shower/bath instead of trying to use a towel.  It’s on my Christmas list😊🎅.

        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.

        Thanks for the suggestions, Daniel. The bath chair can be a big help.
