Posted August 6, 2013

 

For some, a shower chair and a handheld shower head is very helpful. Make sure the lighting is both sufficient and soothing. Enjoyable music can also help. Protecting the dignity of the person is most important. Make sure they feel respected by the process—make it as calm and enjoyable as possible. Smell the soap; talk about happy things; keep the atmosphere light and calm.
