Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us here at The Wright Stuff!
The world of dating and romance is already a delicate art form even without the added stress of having a limited range of motion. Whether they are already settled and married or are still looking for that special someone, people with limited range of motion want to look their best when going on a date. However, difficulty with grooming and dressing present particular obstacles. Stop stressing, take a deep breath and consider what grooming and dressing aids could make your life easier and help you keep your sense of dignity.
Groom on your own again
First of all, getting your hair styled just right can be difficult when depending on others. Everyone who assists you seems to comb your hair differently, and when you try to give them specific instructions, they get moody at you for being picky! One option is to take matters into your own hands with the Body Care Long Handle Comb or Hair Brush. The long, ergonomic handle reaches up for you so you don’t have to. Buy the comb and hair brush separately or as a single set for cheaper.
Shave on your own without straining
Relying on others to help with shaving is also a tricky and sometimes painful experience, especially with caregivers of the opposite sex who may have no experience shaving faces or legs. The Electric Razor Strap holds your electric razor to your hand for you, allowing you to move more freely without having to worry about dropping the razor.
The Razor Extension Handle is especially useful for shaving legs. Attach your razor to the plastic handle, which is adjustable for the perfect angle.
Look spiffy. Use dressing aids.
Once you are groomed and shaved, it’s time to get dressed. But for a romantic evening out, you want to look your best and dress yourself the way you want to be dressed, not how your caregiver wants you to be dressed. A simple Dressing Stick can be invaluable in this situation and many others. The hardwood dowel with a vinyl-coated push-pull hook on one end and a small metal hook on the other offers an almost unlimited range of uses.
For the ladies out there who want to show off their jewelry, the 3 In 1 Hooker Bracelet Fastener helps those with limited range of motion fasten bracelets and necklaces. It can also function as a button aid and zipper pull.
Take dating preparation into your own hands this year and make Valentine’s Day enjoyable and worry-free.
