The opening

Did you get it?

Did you learn the steps? Every step counts – they are ALL important. The best place to practice this is in your bathroom at home! You have a door to knock on…a person to talk to (the one in the mirror)…a curtain to pull (the shower curtain)…and a sink to wash your hands. Give it a try (when you are alone, of course!).

Remember to read the care plan before you begin the opening…you have to know what task you are supposed to do and how to do it!
