PURPOSE: To provide methods of drying after bathing for seniors and individuals with arthritis, mobility disabilities, and other physical disabilities. Suggestions include substituting a terry cloth robe for a traditional towel and cutting a large stip of towelling and attaching web or cloth loop handles to create a towel with hand grips. Cutting the bottom off a robe creates a "bath jacket" to reduce chilling when bathing takes some time. Attaching a terry cloth pouch over one end of a yardstick creates a means of drying the feet and between toes.
