Some senior adults like to take warm baths before they go to sleep because of how relaxing it can be. According to health experts, soaking in a warm bath can improve blood circulation, relieve muscle tension, and lower blood pressure. It can also help a person fall asleep faster.
Like everyone else, your senior loved one can have good days and bad days as we caregivers know very well. They can be happy and so full of life one day. Later, they can be gloomy and anxious in the next. During the time when they feel stressed out, you can suggest that they soak their cares away in a warm bath before going to bed. That way, they can get quality sleep and feel refreshed the following day.
However, it’s also important to note that warm baths may cause your senior adult’s skin to become dry. Therefore, make sure that you or someone from respite care in Georgia helps them apply an ample amount of lotion or moisturizer to their skin after every bath or as needed.
