Hi Gail,

Thank you for the tip. I'm not sure why I didn't think to try YouTube, but that's a great suggestion! 

I had tried YouTube when looking for instructions for helping grandma on & off the toilet. She's pretty mobile with her walker and can use the toilet herself, altho I do supervise. The funny thing about YouTube was that they had a bunch of videos on "how to back up to the toilet", "how to sit on the toilet" and even "how to get off of a raised toilet seat"....but you know what the problem was? No one ever showed how to do those steps only using one hand/how she should pull down her pants and pull them back up again! (I laughed cuz it really was a problem for someone with a balance problem but couldn't find how to do it properly- lucky, we worked it out and she can do it on her own)...but it's things like that where I am stumped and don't kno if there is a correct way to do it or if "winging it" safely is the right thing to do! (Ha ha).

luckily, she can bathe in the shower and tries to do most of it herself (she may have had a stroke but is ornery and determined so often she just says that I am a pain in her you-know-where. Lol).  But I will def try YouTube because I can't seem to figure out how NOT to get everything else in the bathroom wet! 

Thank you again for the help and happy to bounce around around any other ideas or suggestions if you need. ­čśÇ Zoe
