Most of the caregivers that I meet with who care for a person with Alzheimer’s are dealing with a difficult behavior, and bathing is an activity which can be a struggle. This is very common and can be frustrating and overwhelming for the caregiver. It can also become the determining factor on whether a caregiver can continue to provide care for the person affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.
Often the caregiver says to the person with Alzheimer’s, “It is time to go take your bath”, and you head into the bathroom to start getting everything ready. This is the first mistake. Here are some helpful tips that might make bathing a little easier.
The key thing you should remember is that you need to be flexible and prepared to try new approaches. Be fun and silly and happy while you try things. It makes the experience easier on you and less stressful for your loved one.
