How nice of you to be helping your friend like this! Most medical supply stores have long handled grabbers which are fabulous. My mom used them.
Take care,
Hardware stores & Home Depot type of stores have grabbers too. Lots of websites for people trying to live independently also have them. I would get more then one too. I wouldn't want to have to carry a grabber with me around the house.
You can also find grabbers in most drug stores. They are wonderfully useful for anyone, handicapped or not!
