Care recipient (cr) is uncooperative getting dressed and undressed

Try: Give cr a safety pop to hold in one or both hands cr will usually recognize the safety pop as candy and begin licking it this takes cr’s mind off of the task at hand and gives him or her something else to focus on cr usually will not mind if you take the safety pop away momentarily while you put his or her arms in a sleeve pull shirt over head and so on this approach may also work with other personal care tasks where the cr is uncooperative for example combing hair taking a shower and so on

Materials: Safety pops or other suckers information safety pops are great for toddlers and young children they have a safety loop handle and completely enclosed pouch they are free of the top common allergens and gluten-free safety pops provide parents with peace of mind they are available in a wide variety of flavors
