Bathing Can Be Stressful for People with Disabilities or Limited Mobility
Many people look forward to taking a shower or bath, and find it a refreshing experience—an opportunity to relax the body and renew the spirit

For people with disabilities or injuries who are unable to bathe by themselves, bathing or showering doesn’t feel like a home spa experience, it can feel difficult and embarrassing.

For people with disabilities or injuries, the simple act of taking a bath must be accomplished with the help of a caregiver.

By following these simple techniques, it's possible for caregivers to create a home spa experience that makes bath time relaxing and pleasurable for people with disabilities or injuries, without being too difficult for the caregiver.
