loshimo Just got a mail order box last night which included a long handle shampoo brush. I've been having more and more trouble raising my arms above my head lately. Hopefully this will help keep my head clean. Any one experienced this?
TerryW I just put in a shower bench and another grab bar
TerryW Losh, I can only hold them up there for a minute or so
Gary_KC loshimo , I have the same problem, too.
Ron I always shower and wish I had more of a reach sometimes.
