3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Night’s Sleepnw5

  1. Your Bedroom – a clean, peaceful and welcoming bedroom will aid a better night’s sleep. Make sure your room it completely dark and invest in a blackout blind or curtains, or an eye mask might be a cheaper alternative. Your bedroom should not be too hot or too cold, around 16-18° C is recommended. Scents such as lavender and germanium are naturally calming, so invest in some essential oils to help you drift off.
  2. Your Bed – Do you ever wake up with neck or back ache? When lying in bed, do you feel springs or ridges beneath the surface? Avoid the ‘Seven Year Hitch’ – the point at which existing beds may still look good but are beginning to offer less support than a new one*. What better time than National Bed Month to invest in a better night’s sleep if your bed is seven years old or more? Take a look at our sister More Than Mobility’s website for our range of new electric adjustable beds.
  3. Your Lifestyle – The 21st century lifestyle is typically fast paced, chaotic and jam-packed with technology. From the moment we wake up, we’re continuously being fed content from smart phones, TV, radio and social media feeds. All this non-stop stimulation causes havoc when we’re trying to fall asleep. Switch off your tech a couple of hours before bedtime – that includes your phone! Also try reducing the intensity of artificial light in your home by using dimmer switches or low wattage bulbs.

Here’s hoping to your next great night’s sleep!

Dressing Tips For Those With Physical Disabilities

A physical disability can make everyday tasks such as putting on and off clothes difficult; but dressing tipsthere are things you can do to help improve the situation.

Adapted Clothing and Aids

If your or a relative has physical problems, which means they are struggle with ordinary buttons and small openings, there is a range of adapted clothing with special features that can help. For example, zips and Velcro are both easier to fasten than small buttons or shoelaces; easier still are clothes that don’t require fastening at all.

You might like to consider some of our best-selling Adaptawear adapted clothing for both men and women to help with independent and assisted dressing:

We also sell a range of dressing and clothing aids; from dressing sticks to button hooks, clip on ties, sock and sleeve aids.

Dressing tips for those who are partially sighted

If your relative is partially sighted, good organisation is key to making the dressing routine as simple as possible.

It’s crucial that your relative organises their own clothes – perhaps with your help – as the best organisation in the world won’t help if he or she isn’t familiar with the system.

As a first step, chat about how happy they are with their current clothes situation. This is particularly important if their sight is deteriorating or the eyesight problem is a recent one.

It may be helpful for you to go through his or her wardrobe together to check that the clothes don’t have holes or stains, as this may be something they’re not able to check themselves and that could be a source of anxiety.

Dressing tips for those with dementia

If your relative has dementia, any, and how much, help they will need with dressing depends on how advanced their dementia is.

If your relative has just been diagnosed with dementia, it’s important to encourage a morning and evening routine of washing and dressing to ensure he or she understands and can relate to the time of day. It’s particularly important to encourage independence and choice as much as possible.

Perhaps your relative only needs simple prompts at this stage, or they may appreciate you laying out the clothes that they need to wear and then they can finish getting dressed themselves.

If your relative’s condition changes, it may be necessary to change the amount of help you, or a care worker, provides for them. At the later stage of dementia, you may need to hand your loved one each item of clothing in order for them to manage to get dressed.

The importance of labels

Clearly labelled clothing storage can be very helpful for someone with dementia, particularly drawers and cupboards.

It’s also a good idea to check that the clothes are stored neatly and within easy reach, as all of this will help your relative get dressed.

Please visit our website if you or a loved one needs adaptive clothing we have a huge variety in store. We also have dressing aids to help get clothes on and off.
