The Care recipient (cr) avoids touching others and being touched by others

Try: # check whether the cr’s skin is dry itchy or bruised which may make touch uncomfortable # ask before touching cr and always approach from the front so that you can be seen before touching # provide a small stuffed animal or other soft object for cr to hold for comfort # let the cr decide whether they want to touch or be touched and don’t force the issue # use a soft tone of voice and a smile to show affection and concern when the cr does not want to be hugged or touched

Materials: # stuffed animal or rolled towel # lotion for dry skin
