1. Use daily, no-rinse bathing wipes for the days they do not bathe.

  2. Schedule a specific time every day for “bath time,” and treat it like a spa experience.

  3. Ask your loved one to help you try out a new soap, shampoo or lotion.

  4. Does your loved one have safety concerns that may have scared them? Maybe they need a mat or bathtub bench transfer unit.

  5. Are there any messy activities you can get your loved one involved in? Once they’re dirty, they may be more willing to clean up.
