• Stick to a consistent bathing routine. Make it the same time the person previously bathed (first thing in the morning, right before bed).

  • Don’t remind or even mention how long it’s been since the last cleanup. Instead of arguing, proceed with bath preparations.

  • Don’t ask, “Did you shower?” or “Would you like to shower now?” Get everything ready and invite the person in: “Look, your bath is ready. I know how you love your evening bath”.

  • Try leading the person to the bath unexpectedly, on your way to doing something else. Or lead the way to the bathroom but without talking about a bath

  • Have everything ready so you don’t leave the person alone, as she may abandon the idea..

  • Don’t worry about a full daily bath or shower. Bathe weekly and “top and tail” (face, genitals) as best you can the other days.
