Bathing often times can be frightening to elderly people who do not have others around the home. The fear of slipping,falling and not being able to get help is overbearing to the mind. I would go to my mothers home and stay close to the bathroom while she bathed. She felt safer and I felt it was time well spent. As she grew older and weaker she felt more comfortable having me assist her even more.We would never consider letting a little helpless child bathe alone so why would we even consider not doing the same for our elderly who are in need of assistance?
