Washing and personal care

This section is written for a family member or carer to help you with your personal care.

As someone gets weaker they will need more help with washing. Emotionally this may be very difficult, as it signifies a loss of independence. They may need professional help or special equipment.

Be aware that helping someone in and out of a bath is more difficult than people think. Seek help rather than damaging your back.
