Bathing is a very complex task for a person that has not done this task before. Therefore it definitely should be broken down into small steps. After one step is mastered then move to the next step. Usually, the first step is to step into the shower. The last step is usually the hair which is a little more complex. Many caregivers do not realize the amount of time it saves for them by making the child or person independent in bathing. This is a task that is usually done daily. The effort for a month or two of training will pay off in the long run with years of not having to bathe them. Also, the child or adult will feel much better about themselves and the control they have over the activities in their own lives. In general, people that can perform most of their own care feel much happier:)Consistent
