How do I go about this?
Not sure if any of you will remember or not, but I posted a while back about a co-worker suffering from liver disease.
She's at the end stage now and all she wants is a bath and to have her hair washed. Her family hasn't been very supportive.
Home health is due to start but in the meantime she really wants to be clean.
I'd like to do this for her. I've never done this for anyone before. So, I guess what I'm asking is what do I do? Sponge bath? Try to get her in the tub? Wash her hair in bed? She's very frail and I don't want her to fall if we try to get her in the tub. Also, should I wear gloves? Are there bath products that would be easy on her paper thin skin?
Heck, I'm just a co-worker and friend. I don't want to embarrass her either.
Sorry to be so awkward with this post; it's an awkward situation. Any suggestions on how to go about this would be most appreciated.
