Assisting with Dressing

Assisting with Dressing 

The routines of daily life such as eating, bathing, and getting dressed are essential to functioning. All adults strive to independently accomplish these tasks to live life fully. However, there are times when individuals will need the help of others, such as caregivers. As a caregiver, you need to know how to help others dress so that you can do so as the need arises. In this course, you will learn about assisting with dressing and undressing as well as how to promote independence while assisting with dressing.
