Keep by TV: Sounds funny but many of my good flosers do so while watching tv or at computer! then brush and wash hands at sink during advertisements.

Flossing a habit: Most have a routine when they get up in the morning add it to your routine. You can also put it in the shower and make it part of your bathing routine.

Try premade flossers: If you do not have the dexterity to use regular dental floss easily, try using floss on a holder. They usually come with a gum stimulator on the other end. They are availiable at most riteaid or cvs stores.
