The pobroll® is a totally waterproofed calming bed-bathing wrap designed to improve the user and carer experience of the bed bath. For many people living with dementia, and immobile people who require personal care, the bed bath commonly causes a range of problems including the need to change wet sheets, poor standards of cleanliness, and carer stress. For the individual being bathed, they can experience embarrassment, become too cold, and remain damp for too long, and these issues can trigger agitation. Having a proper wash and feeling clean is a basic human right, which is why we have created the pobroll.
The pobroll is made of two layers of high-quality soft terry-cotton with an impermeable material sandwiched between them to ensure total waterproofing. The smart-yet-simple design allows for person-centred care and is easy to use, effective, and highly adaptable. The pobroll keeps the individual warm, dry and respectfully covered during personal washing and bathing on the bed, whilst also keeping the bed completely dry. This reduces embarrassment or distress, and allows for a calm and more pleasurable bathing experience for all concerned.
Over several years the pobroll has been trialled across a range of settings, from nursing homes to the homes of people living with dementia. It proved of enormous worth in all these scenarios, as it was found to reduce towel use, keep the client warm and comforted, maintain dignity and keep the bed dry. Staff who have used the pobroll highly recommend this product as an asset to care settings where personalised care is important. Individuals in the home caring for a loved one have felt that the pobroll is a practical solution enabling them to make a valuable contribution to end of life care.
“My sister and I used the pobroll when nothing else would have helped. We were rather clueless as to how to go about the bathing itself, but the pobroll gave us the confidence to try a full body wash bit by bit. It kept mum warm and dried her nicely. Afterwards Dad was able to wash it in his normal washing machine without difficulty. Thank goodness we have it!” - Daughter caring for her mother with advanced dementia
