The Checklist is provided to help you think of all the tasks you do and may need assistance with. This checklist is something you may find useful if you are starting to have difficulties with daily activities such as personal grooming like shaving or brushing your hair or preparing and cooking food.
I do have problems with these and like some of the suggestions:
Do you use or would you like to use adaptive devices to prepare meals?
• Rocker knife
• Mini-food processor/chopper
• Adapted spatula
• Color coded burners and knobs
• Digital timer
• Lightweight unbreakable bowls
• Lower work surfaces
This checklist is not only good to face facts and clarify these concerns for yourself but it may help your doctor, specialist or rehabilitation specialist of physiotherapist to understand where you are and how to offer help.
Keep in mind though it is not specific for Myositis.
If anyone does know of a checklist that is specific for muscle disease please let us know. Thanks.
