    TIPPING POINT

    Not sure if this will help but have read in other forums about no rinse shampoos and caps, ie with the shampoo you just put it on the hair, lather it up and towel dry. Must admit I havent tried it on OH but maybe it will help you. Just google no rinse shampoo.

    Probably a strange question but...

    Hi everyone. My OH has memory problems, confusion an inability to do even the simplest thing ie put a screw in the wall (when he used to do all home repairs including plumbing etc) and a somewhat relaxed attitude, to say the least, to personal hygiene. What he can do is take our little dog out...

    Welcome to Talking Point - introduce yourself here

    Hello My husband suffers from memory loss, confusion & general lack of interest in anything, this has been gradually coming on for the last 2 or 3 years and it is definitely getting worse. He is getting more grumpy & bad tempered, has to be reminded to shower etc and just sits there staring...
