Maintain Skin Health
As the skin ages, it becomes thinner and more delicate. Many soaps can strip away natural oils, causing dryness and irritation. In addition, reusable washcloths can be rough and may damage already fragile skin. The TENA® Bathing Glove is a soft, textured material that contains a mild cleansing formula.
Reusable basins and reusable washcloths can harbor harmful bacteria.1 The 5-count pack for individual use helps reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
Reduce Labor intensive Routine
The daily hygiene routine can be time-consuming and physically demanding for both the resident and caregiver.2 Minimal preparation, bathing, and clean up time required and no water, washcloth, or towels are needed.
