For small forms: I use my middle finger to push down and compress.

For medium forms: I use my four fingers to open

For small to medium bowls: I use the heel of my hand

For large forms" elbow

Celia!  Are you really brutish to those poor souls?

 

And, Wyndham, can you explain what this means?  "On larger forms I ball a fist cover with left hand ..."

 

I'm working on core body strength, so I challenge myself to step into my "undercrackers" and jeans while standing on one foot at a time. Slightly dangerous, at the point where one leg is trapped, so if I'm found unconscious on the bathroom floor that will probably be why!

OldLady and Ginny C - 'Brutish Red Cross' ha ha! - just spotted my own typo and had a giggle. Must share my mistake with some of the other volunteers.

I'm really very gentle with my patients!
