Use daily, no-rinse bathing wipes for the days they do not bathe.
Schedule a specific time every day for “bath time,” and treat it like a spa experience.
Ask your loved one to help you try out a new soap, shampoo or lotion.
Does your loved one have safety concerns that may have scared them? Maybe they need a mat or bathtub bench transfer unit.
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.
