11 TIPS FOR BATHING A PERSON LIVING WITH DEMENTIA

11 TIPS FOR BATHING A PERSON LIVING WITH DEMENTIA

Do you or another form of dementia? Has bath time has been a struggle for you both?

It's easy to understand why that may be: All of your adult life you have bathed or showered in privacy, using a routine that fits your personal preferences best.

Now imagine someone else trying to undress and bathe you? How you would feel?

For most people, bathing is a highly personal matter, and that doesn't change if dementia sets in.

This is why we put together 11 tips to help make bath time a little less stressful:

1. Consider their preferences:

When living independently, did the person you are caring for prefer to take a bath or a shower?

Did they prefer to bathe early in the morning or evening?

And which toiletries did they like to use?

The more you know and the more you follow their preferred hygiene routine, the more natural it will feel to the person in your care.

2. Respect their privacy:

If at all possible, have only you and the person you are caring for in the room. The more people join you, the more awkward and uncomfortable the experience will likely be for the person living with dementia.

3. Put yourself in their shoes:

One surefire way to have a more understanding and compassionate bathing experience for you both is to visualize yourself in the role of the person being bathed, and how you would feel.

Empathy is a crucial piece to compassionate caregiving, and can help you develop a more respectful care approach.
