      I will try it in reverse next time but I’m not sure how I will manage the shower valve and soap dispenser which will be behind me. I wonder if they make a version like the car that parks itself.
      I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

        Barry. Do you have a wet room with enough space to turn in once you are in the room. That’s what I did with Ann. It was getting through the door into the bathroom that was our problem. We only have a narrow hall way.

          Ah I see your problem Barry. No reversing isn’t going to help. Could you remove the foot plates and position a small plastic toilet step ( you know the type that small children use )in the shower to rest your feet on.

          I notice you have the same sparkly white wall boards we do. I love the way they reflect different colours

            That's tight for sure, Barry.

            If you use the walker to and from the shower itself, would a shower stool work?

            Some have swivel seats, so you could turn yourself around:

            Or you have probably tried that already.

            Love Ellie.

              My wife covers me in soap before I get in the shower. Then I just sit on a shower stool and let it rinse off. Not brilliant but it works.

                  GaryM Since I only see my wife for a weekend once a fortnight I'd be pretty smelly if I waited for a soap down. I had a stool but getting on and off proved difficult. I have removed the footplates which I don't need and I can get in okay.

                    Well nothing normally, but I'm open to suggestions. Maybe "I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair"? Ideas on a postcard.
