Series 3: Personal hygiene Bed Bath. By Kellie Cooper-Smith

Our Practical Care at end-of-life series continues! I am very excited to share the next fact sheet on personal hygiene bed bathing.

Assisting your loved one with personal hygiene and providing them with a lovely warm bed bath shows your commitment to your loved one’s care, health and wellbeing.

As with all other areas of personal hygiene, bed bathing will contribute to your loved ones over all wellbeing and will promote health for their physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.

In this fact sheet you will find helpful information on:

- Creating a beautiful ritual

- Equipment and supplies you will need

- Step by step guide to providing a bed bath for your loved one

- Hair washing

Helping someone to have a bed bad at the end of life can be a truly beautiful experience and a beautiful ritual can be created. Always remember to create an environment which provides your loved one with a sense of peace and calm.

I invite you to head over to GoodGrief! where you can view Margaret Rice and I discuss practical advice on bed baths through our online video series.
