Refusal To Take A Bath Or Shower

Sometimes people with Alzheimer's disease are afraid to take a bath. They think that they will drown, or they do not like to be cold. It could be many different reasons.  I know that grandma can give the staff at her nursing home a hard time when they try to bathe her.  I came up with a few tips that I would like to share!

Tips


  1. Play soft music (classical music works well for grandma)
  2. Offer a rubber duck as a distraction. Grandma used to give me a rubber duck to play with in the bath when I was little, it worked for me! (I know Ernie agrees!)
  3. Give your loved one a washcloth with a pretty pattern.
  4. Make sure the room is warm.
  5. Have a big warm comfy bathrobe ready.

  2. To buy the best shower for you, you'll also need to consider how skilled you need the water stream to feel and how indispensable the plan is to you. shower filter head
