Disclosure: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Now that this is out of the way, let me say that home delivery is one of the best, most sanity-saving things that a caregiver can invest in. Some items I ordered as needed, others I had on Amazon's "Subscribe and Save." A word to the wise about subscribe and save- you do need to keep an eye on your orders to see price changes or if you no longer need a certain product due to circumstances changing. Get in there early enough to "skip" or take the item off. I have been bitten by this before, although I will say, in the long run, the convenience of subscribe and save was worth the few "oops" of having things delivered that I did not need. Wipes: Wipes are your best friend, so they need to be adequate, but affordable. If you run out, then of course baby wipes or the adult wipes sold in pharmacies will do, but for long term use, those are not very affordable. After trying several brands, I settled on these. They come in a case of several soft-packs so they can be resealed. They are not flushable of course, but most aren't (and the small flushable wipes available really aren't adequate in the home care setting). You can use these for face and hands wipes, for toileting care, and in a pinch for body baths. There are other, more plush wipes specifically for bathing, but those are a completely different product. Just a note: these links show the best price available when I set this up. If you see a better price, you should buy them, but please drop a note letting me know so I can change the links.
Gloves: The first thing is to know if you or your loved one has any sensitivities so you buy the appropriate material gloves. Beyond that, it really is a personal choice. This is another supply that I found to be much more affordable online than in the store. I used two different brands depending on which one was in stock when I would order. At first glance, a box of 100 seems like it will last a while, but be sure to assess your needs. How much assistance with toileting does your loved one need? If a full assist or total care, you will need multiple pairs per day, sometimes using more than two gloves per change. What other care requires gloves and how often do you perform these care tasks? For example, applying lotions and creams to fragile skin seems to go much smoother when wearing gloves. You will need gloves for toileting care, for applying lotions, administering suppositories, and cleaning up messes. There are other brands that are slightly less expensive but I had poor performance from cheaper brands.
