My husband has great hair, but I am having a hard time washing it. He seems to be unable to tilt his head back at all. I tried a plastic funnel that goes around his neck, he was wet from head to toe. I have tried a shampoo cap, but it made his hair crusty . It is so difficult to move him, I dress him in bed, so if he’s wet it is really hard for me to change his clothes.
Our bedroom is upstairs. we hope to move next year. Although he have a chair on the stairs to get him up, it is a struggle. We need an extra person to help every night. I am planning on putting a hospital bed in the living room. Not at all ideal, and something I did not want to do, but becoming necessary as an option . The problem is, I will be upstairs. He says he has no problem with that. I rationalize that if he was in a care home he’d be in his room alone, but I still feel quilty. Any ideas. I plan on getting a video monitor so I can see him. At this point he usually sleeps OK.
