No bath safety plan is complete unless it considers the need for a beside commode.  For the weak and infirm, a portable commode offers dignity in toileting with conservation of energy.  Check out these Bedside commodes at bathsafetyfirst.com

Conveniently placed grab bars in the tub and toilet area are essential tools in maintaining bathing safety among the weak or infirm.  LifeSolutionsPlus is now offering a wide variety of grab bars at its new bathsafetyfirst.com site.

Bathing Issues / Bath Safety Site Update
« on: August 01, 2013, 10:41:09 PM »
Recently we updated the new Bath Safety First website to use different store software.

Initially, we used a new software package called Abantecart.  This turned out to be inconvenient to use and maintain, and not as security minded as we demand our software to be.  So, we rebuilt the site using a different application.

The main page remains at http://www.bathsafetyfirst.com

Medication Management / Medication Organizers
« on: October 19, 2012, 06:52:30 PM »
One of the biggest problems encountered with medication is successfully administering them on a regular basis.  Simply put - if you forget to take the pill, it doesn't work.

Life Solutions Plus offers a variety of products to help with this.  See the Medicine Organizers category on the store site.

Nutritional Support / Good Food, Good Health - Not always easy
« on: July 25, 2010, 12:17:38 AM »
Most of us are aware that eating well enhances health and take our ability to meet our nutritional needs for granted.

Only when we realize how difficult it can become to prepare healthy meals when the ability to grasp is impaired in some way do we start looking for solutions.  This can be hard.   This board is dedicated to discussing the difficulties and the tools that can be used to overcome them...


Bathing Issues / Bathing Challenges....

Whether cleanliness is next to godliness or not, sometimes its next to impossible.  If you or yours need some help meeting daily hygiene needs or have some helpful suggestions to offer, this is the place for them... :)


Mobility Aides and Issues / The Mobility Forum:
« on: July 18, 2010, 05:19:30 AM »
Movement is life.

Movement drives the skeletal muscle pump that helps return blood from the furthest reaches of the body.

Motion is life.

Motion helps equalize pressure around the joints, promoting comfort and improving joint function.

Mobilization is life.

Mobilization generates impact, changing laminar flows within the body to non-laminar flows which help prevent stasis of viscous fluids in pulmonary and circulatory paths.

Movement is life.

Movement allows us to reposition the body - moving the point of maximal pressure from one part of the body surface to another and maintaining healthy perfusion to all our tissue.

Motion is life.

Motion moves us from where we are to where we dream of being, turning yesterdays vision into todays reality and tomrorrows memories.

Mobility is life.

Mobility creates change in the curves and angles of the body, pleasing the eye, troubling the mind, raising us above the mundane and stretching creation before us.

Movement is life.

Movement carries us forward as we bury our past, casting anchors in the ocean of time, connecting us to our future.

Motion is life.

Ok, not everyone waxes poetic over mobility.  But there can be no doubt that mobility is a critical need in our lives.  So, the Independent Living forums is establishing this forum as a place to discuss impaired mobility and the ways and means we use to deal with it. 

Caregivers Corner / Caregiving and Independent Living
« on: July 18, 2010, 03:25:20 AM »
Living independently is about facing the challenges one meets in life and meeting them on your own terms.  Sometimes, doing so requires some help.

Whether its simply listening as we vent frustrations, or actively addressing our issues for us, the people who help us meet life's challenges are caregivers.  This is their place.

We don't expect confidential information to be shared here. In fact, I'd strongly discourage it and am likely to delete it if you do.   But if you need a place to sound off about general issues, shoot the breeze to vent your frustrations or share helpful hints and tips on care giving and related issues feel free...


General Discussion / LifesolutionsPlus.com RSS Feeds
« on: February 28, 2010, 06:03:04 AM »
I've been adding new RSS feed generators to the http://lifesolutionsplus.com website.  The content covered includes products, product reviews, articles and article topics (think "categories") at the moment.

Why is this important?  Because RSS Feeds allow users to retrieve data on a subscription basis using tools under their own control - RSS Readers.  The readers configuration can be used to apply custom style sheets, allowing not only readability tailored to the users own needs, but the ability to change the layout to suit their own taste.

Further, RSS Readers allow users to get up to date information about new products, articles and reviews submitted by other users in an easy to use fashion - with new RSS feed items retrieved and organized by the reader on demand, or on a schedule of the users choice.  Talk about independence!

Information on styling RSS Feeds can be found at:

http://userstyles.org/  where a number of users share their own stylesheets.

The Firefox "Stylish" addon extends Firefoxes capabilities adn makes it easier to manage user stylesheets.
