Caregivers: Try this five-minute idea for bathing your loved one

Kayla Cook, RN, owner and director of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services, shares a practical idea for bathing your loved one.

“The elderly don’t need a complete bath or shower every day. Their skin is fragile and is often dry,” she says. “An easy way to stay fresh is to take eight washcloths and moisten with no-rinse soap and baby oil mixed in water. Place cloths in a large Ziploc bag and microwave one minute. Check temperature before using. You can quickly help your loved one wash needed areas and keep skin moist.”
