During bathing Care recipient (cr) exhibits aggressive sexual behavior toward caregiver

Try: #use a beach towel and keep the cr covered while assisting with the bath uncovering only small areas of the body as you wash them #give the cr something to hold bath brush sponge rubber duck an empty shampoo bottle etc so that sexual advances toward the caregiver are more difficult to make #while you are washing one area of the body direct the cr verbally or with a gentle touch on the hand to self-wash the genital area there may be less of a suggestion of sexual contact when the cr is more responsible for washing that area #don’t overreact when the cr acts inappropriately distract or redirect the cr if the behavior continues over time contact the cr cr’s doctor or nurse
