Getting dressed and undressed can be one of the most challenging activities we do each day. There are so many components to dressing, please allow yourself plenty of time so that you complete each task safely. Dressing in a seated position is recommended, only stand when you need to pull up or pull down your pants. A long handled reacher is a must-have. It can help you get your pants over your feet, push off a sock and pick up any needed items that are on the floor.
When using a Long Handled Sock Aid, here are a couple of tips to make it much easier for you to get your sock on. When putting your sock over the sock aid, make sure that your sock only goes over 50% of the sock aid. If you cover the entire sock aid with your sock… you will never be able to pull the sock aid out. Make sure that the sock is not rolled down on the sock aid, but neatly stretched out over the sock aid. When pulling the sock on remember to alternate pulling right strap, left strap, right strap and so on. If you pull more on one strap, it will roll your sock placement toward the bottom of your foot. It is best if your socks aren’t too tight, and they are ankle length.
When picking out a Long Handled Reacher there are a couple things to remember. Make sure that the length of the reacher is appropriate for you… not too long… but not too short. I also would recommend picking out a reacher that has a tip on the end where the claw is. This tip will be very helpful when you are trying to take off your socks.
