Thought I would start this thread so we can all share our hints and tips for making life easier for us. Here are a few from me:
Check whether your shop has a home delivery service - many are free and even if you drive it will still save you carrying groceries to and from the car etc
See whether there is an occupational therapist in your area - in the UK this service is usually free and they order necessary equipment and install it etc
Break tasks down into easy segments rather than attempting all at once
Invest in a slow cooker... means you can make dinner when you are feeling reasonably alert in the morning and have it ready at dinner time with no extra effort required
See if your local pharmacy offers a service to put your pills in a dosette box - this will save you needing to remember which pills you need and when since they will all have been sorted for you. Best of all no more trying to push the pills out of foil packets
A radar key is brilliant since it allows you access to disabled toilets/restrooms etc. Purchasing one will give you somewhere to get out of the way if you need space. Also means you do not have to pay at stations and the like
Check to see if you are entitled to a blue badge (or equivalent) as this will allow you to park nearer to store entrances and often gets you free parking.
Keep a note in your wallet/purse with lists of the medication you are on, including dosages and times needed etc in case you are suddenly taken ill
Keep an identical list to the one above in the fridge in a pot... make sure it is in an obvious place and put a note by the door alerting paramedics to the lists location
I hope that these give some of you something to think of... any more from anyone else?
