Personal routines and self-care

Self-care is a vital part of life​​.​

Many people with cerebral palsy (CP) feel it’s important to be able to care for themselves on a day-to-day basis.

This may include toileting, bathing, moving between positions, dressing, managing personal hygiene, preparing meals and sleeping. How well you can care for yourself comes down to a combination of your skills and abilities, the activity, the environment around and what support you have access to.
