Post Hygiene
My husband has been diagnosed with LBD, we have had ups and downs but his medications seem to have stabilized him,. He always was very concerned with his cleanliness and shaved, showered daily, brushed his teeth, etc., however, the last few weeks he doesn't remember to brush his teeth and clean his partials unless I point it out. He gets irritated with me when I remind him to do it both in the morning and at night and it now takes him a long time to get shaved and showered and has to take a few rest periods between each task.
How can I help without getting him agitated with me?
He is a good looking gentleman and always looked immaculate so it's hard for me to see this change.

It's not easy. We now do all of our hygiene and dressing together. He's better at it if he can just follow my lead.
