Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Suggests ways to mitigate the distress and discomfort experienced during bathing by elderly people with dementia. The 13 chapters identify possible sources of distress, and recommend an in-bed towel bath as a successful alternative to showers. The guide is primarily intended for institutions, but home caregivers should also find it useful. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
