- Loved one DX
i'm a first time poster but have followed this site since my mom was diagnosed back in august. i first wanted to say what an amazing community you have and how much you all have inspired me and what a big help you have been. the reason i'm finally posting is that i'm in a bit of a pinch. i'd really like to get my mom some things for christmas that might make her life a little easier. (she can still walk and get around, but has a lot of trouble speaking and also with her hands). i'm in grad school and got overwhelmed with end of semester stuff, and am ashamed to admit it but haven't done any research yet about what's out there. i was thinking of things that could maybe help you open doors or take lids off things, but really i have no idea. i was hoping some of you could give me some advice about any devices or things that have helped you. i am a broke grad student so don't have tons to spend, but i'd be willing to spend more if y'all think of something that really helps. i know it's last minute but any ideas would be a huge help. thanks.
