People with dementia may become uncooperative and
resistant to daily activities such as bathing, dressing and eating.
Often this is a response to feeling out of control, rushed, afraid or
confused by what you are asking of them.
Break each task into steps and,
in a reassuring voice, explain each step before you do it. Allow plenty
of time. Find ways to have them assist to their ability in the process,
or follow with an activity that they can perform.
