BATHING AND PERSONAL HYGIENE
Washing and bathing are the most important ways of maintain good health and protecting ourselves from infections, illnesses and ailments. Maintaining cleanliness is also important for our self-confidence, physical and emotional well-being. The main purpose of washing is to remove dirt and odors.
Getting in and out of a bathtub or shower can be dangerous for seniors who are prone to falls by slipping. Some aging loved ones might stop from regular bathing from fear of falling. Although it’s true that seniors do not need to shower as much as younger adults, keeping up with routine personal hygiene is still important to living a healthy life.
