Description: Like its popular predecessor, the new edition of "Bathing Without a Battle" presents an individualized, problem solving approach to bathing and personal care of individuals with dementia. Based on extensive original research and clinical experience, the authors 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 suffering from dementia. For this second edition, the authors have included historical material on bathing; substantially updated Part II on special concerns such as pain, skin care, determining the appropriate level of assistance, transfers and the environment. An enhanced Part III addresses ways to support caregivers by increasing their understanding of the care recipient's needs and 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.
