If a member of your family is disabled, then here are some suggestions to make life easier for all.

Being disabled just sucks but what makes it more cumbersome is something just out of your reach.  As happens quite regularly, a visitor comes by to visit,  bringing with them a gift, a newspaper, a book which naturally they put down before they leave which is usually 10 inches out of my reach.

Suggestion:   Make a space within reach labeled Gifts for (Disabled Person)

The other frustrating thing is that every day tools are out of reach.

Suggestion: Use a shower bag to hold toothpaste, toothbrush, mouth wash, etc and attach to hospital bed with metal shower hooks.  Also a cup or basin would help with tooth brushing.

More later . . .
