Revision to Caregiver Tasks - 2

On taking the shower / for example, today:
(Imagine all of this going on as I am also trying to get ready for work.)
Guide him into the bedroom
Ask him to remove his clothes
Find him sitting in the office
"I can't find my shoes."
You just took them off; they're next to the bed.
Guide him back to the bedroom.
Now (said really sweetly) please take off your shirt and socks
He sits and begins with his socks
Go looking for him because he is not in the bedroom
Me: "Where are you?"
Him: "Where are YOU?"
Find him sitting in the office one sock on and one sock off
Lead him back to the bedroom
Help him remove his socks and clothes
Lead him into the bathroom for his shower.
