Hair drying/showering/painful hands

sunflower Member Posts: 33 Courageous
Hi I have a few conditions which mean that sometimes I can't use the hairdryer. I can use it with one arm but not the other. Some people have used bits of guttering and suction pads to pit something together. But it's just me at home and I don't think I have the ability to do this at the mo. Also showering is proving a bit tricky, trying to do anything with my right arm above shoulder height. Finally, my hands hurt terribly from osteo arthritis and hypermobility and I'm finding opening, twisting etc becoming harder. Any gadgets, tips, ideas gratefully received.
