In brief: Daily

How often would they bathe if not bedridden? Bedridden people need to be moved often so they do not get pressure sores.
Bathing is one way to accomplish this. If one does not need a full bath daily then moving and adjusting will have many benefits. People still need to be touched and feel cared for.
