All of us develop our own routines for bathing, brushing teeth and caring for our bodies early in life. These habits give us a sense of well-being, security and comfort. Allowing someone else to provide care may be stressful. It is important to provide personal care in a way that honors an individual's preferences and dignity. After viewing this program, you will understand the principles behind personal care and how to perform those procedures safely and respectfully.
