My Mominlaw is 95 and now is unable to hold her arms above her head. We use the bench/chair in the tub. It has been a wonderful help. She has been able for the last 3 yrs to take her bath, independantly. I just stay close by, in case. She's very careful .
She's been making up excuses of why she can't wash her hair for over a month now. Even making up stories of how she did it, while we were gone (which she would never do).
Today she has said she just can't lift her arms over her head. Honestly, it's amazing that she has done so well until now! She usually sits up, on her bath chair and uses a rubber hose/sprayer & lets it run on her face, using baby shampoo.
What I would like feedback on is, does anyone know of any portable hairwashing sinks/chairs that would work , in the home? It would be much easier for her to be comfortable. I've never had to deal with this before and am sure some of you have been, for a long time. Please share your experiences and tips with me. I look forward to hearing them! :-)
