Dad uses a shower chair & on a good day can push his bottom up from the seat so I can push a towel underneath & he can sit back sown on it. I worry though about skin fragility (not so much a problem now, he's only 66, but in the future)and also that you can't get into the 'nooks & crannies' that way.

Would be interested to know how people solve this problem without transferring back to the bed & rolling from side to side to dry.

Thanks
