Bath time for kids is a fun affair. Often, there is squealing and splashing as boats and rubber duckies collide together in the warm water. Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease can be very childlike in the later stages of their condition. However, they may not enjoy taking a bath or shower like your son or daughter. Instead, you may find your generally jovial father is now grumpy and frustrated with you. The reasons may include a sense of lost independence and embarrassment with being unclothed in front of you.
