Obese and bariatric patients find that reaching their bottoms after visiting the toilet is such a hard task. They therefore require bariatric wiping aid for obese so that they can maintain their hygiene, dignity and respect.
Before I discovered these aids, the patients we were taking care of at the hospice looked gloomy and mostly embarrassed since most had the energy to walk themselves to the toilets but they would have trouble wiping themselves after their number 1 and number 2s.
This created a dense air of uneasiness since the caregivers had to clean them since they were stinking like all the time.
It is then that a friend told me about long reach comfort wipe toilet aid and after a quick google search, I found so many wiping aids for our patients that I was spoilt for choice. Of course, we later settled on just one since it offers value for money, is long and does not bend or break easily and is comfortable to use by the patients.
Features of the long reach comfort wipe
The product measures 15.8 x 2 x 1.4 inches with the length being the one measuring 15.8inches
It weighs 4.8 ounces
It can hold both wet wipes and tissue paper
Wrap up on the long reach comfort wipe toilet aid
While this product might be cool for those on a low budget, it fails to meet our recommended standards since:
- It is not durable and you will buy so many within a short period of time
- It breaks easily.
Our recommended wiping aid tool is non other than the freedom wand which is cost friendly, durable and comes with three other tools ie.
- An ointment pad
- Shower loofah
- Wiping aid extender.
