About the Book
On the basis of extensive original research and clinical experience, the editors have developed strategies and techniques that work in both institution and home settings. Their approach is also appropriate for caregiving activities other than bathing, such as morning and evening care, and for frail elders not living with dementia.

For this second edition, the authors have included historical material on bathing and substantially updated the section on special concerns, including:

  • Pain
  • Skin care
  • Determining the appropriate level of assistance
  • Transfers
  • The environment

An enhanced final section addresses ways to support caregivers by increasing their understanding of the care recipient’s needs and their knowledge of interventions to improve care and comfort. It also emphasizes self-care and system-level changes to promote person-directed care. Several chapters include specific insights and wisdom from direct caregivers.
