Personal Care for Seniors and Family Members
When in-home care is needed for a loved one, people often think of housekeeping, healthcare and mobility assistance. Part of caring for the elderly and disabled includes personal care, including activities that are typically undertaken personally such as bathing, toileting and grooming. But when these activities become too difficult to be accomplished alone, it can be embarrassing for the patient and caregivers. Natural modesty and family roles can make these intimate activities awkward, but not attending to these needs can create health and hygiene issues. Fortunately, there are easy solutions to this issue of independence.
Providing Dignified Personal Care
Personal care is a term we use to describe delicate activities people are often not comfortable discussing, such as using the bathroom, bathing, grooming and dressing. Our personal care services are part of our larger offering of in-home care for seniors. Because our caregivers aren't related to the person receiving care, it's much easier for the elderly to accept their help. Our caregivers are attentive, experienced and understanding when meeting their patient's personal needs. This allows patients to maintain a sense of independence in the comfort of their own homes while still having their needs met.
Retain Independence Through In-Home Care for Seniors
As they age, there is a certain change of power that must be handled delicately as a parent or loved one begins needing assistance in their daily life. Though caregivers often take over many tasks, this can lead to a loss of independence by the senior receiving care. A big concern among seniors as they worry about losing their independence is losing their dignity. By bringing in outside help, personal care assistance can be performed by a non-family member. This allows your loved one to maintain his or her dignity while receiving the help that is needed to stay healthy and remain independent.

- Bathing and showering
- Shaving with an electric razor
- Incontinence care
- Medication Reminders
