Bathing Without a Battle

This informative and up-to-date video will equip caregivers with the skills to create a more comfortable and person-centered bathing experience for residents (especially persons with Alzheimer’s Disease and special needs.) Through actual before and after examples, the video shows the immediate benefits of:

  • individualizing the approach to bathing
  • communicating with the person (i.e. offering choices and enlisting cooperation for what you are doing)
  • focusing on the comfort needs of residents

The techniques in this video have been proven to:

  1. reduce stress and agitation for residents during bathing, and
  2. enable caregivers to provide better care in a safer, more efficient manner for the residents (and themselves.)

The video offers practical suggestions for bathing, showering, in-room bathing, and hair washing. Package includes video plus CD-ROM (which reinforces the key strategies for understanding and applying a person-centered approach to bathing.) Eligible for free CEU credits.
