Bathing DVD On Everyone's List
Persuading someone with dementia to take a shower who adamantly refuses to bathe, who insists that they just took a shower or they don’t need a shower, is no easy task, often resulting in upsets, agitation, aggression and even injury. Yet the Bathing Without a Battle video demonstrates strategies, approaches and techniques, missed opportunities, and simple steps that can effectively involve the patient, replacing discomfort with willingness and participation, and putting a smile on their face, rather than clenched fingers on their hands. This outstanding training video is a "must see" for all healthcare professionals involved in any aspect of bathing patients.
Based on research and clinical experience, this video will grasp your staff’s attention, introduce new techniques and transform upsetting and difficult bathing experiences into engaging and comfortable ones for both the patient and the caregiver. These strategies work in both facilities and home settings. (Editors: Ann Louise Barrick, Joanne Rader, Beverly Hoeffer, Phillip Sloane)
