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.
Do you have certain tricks up your caregiver sleeve that make everyday tasks a bit easier? Share your creative, low-cost, DIY (Do it Yourself) tips, hacks and time savers. If it works for you — it might work for others! Use the email link below to submit a brief description and, if applicable, a photo for reference. View AARP's Terms of Service.
