caregiving tips and hacks,an illustration of a basket on wheels


There is a simple solution to alleviate the need to lift and move a heavy laundry basket from room to room. Create a shopping cart style tiered cart with wheels to enable care-recipients to easily move their clothes from their room to the laundry room. This helps the caregiver with the laundry, reduces back strain and can provide a sense of independence to the care-recipient.
