Can toilet wiping aids be helpful to the handicapped?
As a caregiver in a famous local nursing home, I’ve seen handicapped clients and senior citizens dread long calls. Their biggest challenge is that they’re unable to clean up efficiently afterwards unless they use aid for wiping bottom. Perhaps due to mobility challenges. This means that they will either have to spend the rest of the day feeling uncomfortable or take a shower afterwards. When talking to them, I often advise them to empty their bowels before taking a shower. I’m sure you’re seeing the wisdom in this life hack. Sadly, this is a temporary solution to a permanent problem in most cases. They actually need an aid when they can’t reach to wipe bottom.

She confesses that she was too pregnant to wipe well then.

- The soft rubbing end is easy on the cheeks and sensitive skin next to the crevice
- You don’t need to touch soiled toilet paper thanks to the push to release button
- The handle isn’t as durable and may fold up after heavy usage
Boasting 17 inches of length, this scrubber lets you clean without straining. However, this is more beneficial to patients who need to apply ointments such as antibacterial medications on their nether regions. The elderly, pregnant and obese can benefit from it too but it would be an overkill if they’re just looking for something that gets the job done. Perhaps the best use of this tool is in using it as an aid to wipe bottom.
Major Selling points
- It’s all in one – wipes the butt, helps apply ointments to the back, can hold wet wipes. In fact, you could even use it as a back scratcher
- 1. The edge isn’t as smoothened. Use carefully lest you end up with injuries. The skin back there is alittle sensitive and the last thing you want is sharp objects near it.
- Being a multipurpose tool, the manufacturer compromised on its butt wiping capabilities and it doesn’t have a push to release button. Even though the grip isn’t slide-proof, it’s a steal at that price tag
