Hair Washing Aids for people with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia help caregivers provide hair care for their loved one. Caregivers may find these hair washing aids allow their loved one to shampoo their hair with less assistance.
If the person with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia is fearful of having his or her hair washed a dry shampoo or shampoo cap may be helpful. Sometimes washing their hair in the sink may be a helpful solution. For bed bound individuals, the inflatable sink allows shampooing while remaining in bed. For wheelchair bound individuals, the shampoo tray or cape may be helpful.
Caregivers may find that a trip to the salon or barbershop may be a fun and positive experience for their loved one too.
