Some of these tips are ones I hadn't thought of, thanks so much! My SO has MS, as many of you know, and she's always having hand trouble - I'm going to get some insulation for her canes and her walker.
As far as the kayboard, I've seen many "ergo" keyboards that look a bit more hand-friendly, if the voice recognition thing doesn't work. I do know those programs have improved a lot - so maybe that's something to look into.
I still use the baskets for clothes - but don't fill them as high. And getting the basket back downstairs? Well, I yell "BANZAIII!!!" and give 'em a toss. Makes a wonderful clatter. They wait for me patiently at the bottom. :lol:
OXO products are fabulous - I bought their can-opener thing-ee, but found that I STILL had problems - as I couldn't grasp the jars while I was using the thing-ee to twist the lid. Well, a strap-clamp worked just right. Clamp in one hand, thing-ee in the other, twist and voila'!
Amazing how creative we get. And it is so fabulous to share our little "AHA!" moments.
