Recently it has been getting harder and harder to get Mum's bathrobe on after I've given her a shower - largely because Mum's elbows don't bend very easily these days! Yesterday, I had what I think was a bright idea! It doesn't happen very often so I thought I'd share it with you in case anyone is having similar problems.
I took 2 large bath towels and sewed them together along the short side, leaving a gap big enough for Mum's head. Then about half way down, on each of the long sides I sewed a piece of ribbon, creating a sort of towelling tabard. It's quick and easy to put on which means Mum doesn't get too cold after her shower, it completely removes the pushing and pulling of trying to get her arm into a sleeve and it effectively preserves her modesty on the short trip from the wet room to the lounge where she gets dressed.
It doesn't require complex needlework skills either!
Love to all xx
