As our loved ones age, personal care matters, such as completing our personal hygiene can be difficult. There are many reasons for this—from mobility issues caused by the age-related physiological changes to injuries that prevent them from being able to do them.
Obviously, this would warrant regular elderly care assistance, something that is often not practical or realistic considering the responsibilities you and the rest of your family would have. The easiest way then would be to hire a caregiver to assist their personal hygiene needs.
Then again, your loved one may not be comfortable with the idea of receiving care from outside. Other times, it is the other way around; your family members may not be confident or may simply be hesitant about taking on your senior’s personal hygiene needs.
Whatever the case, as providers of in-home care in Bluffton, South Carolina, ourselves, we have long known that the key here is to find the right care provider who can assist them professionally while also ensuring that they feel comfortable and respected.
With such a provider, you and your family are rest assured that they are in good hands. Here are among the ways we ensure this personally:
- We make sure to identify points of difficulty.
- We implement all safety measures to prevent slip-and-fall incidents.
- We ensure a relaxing atmosphere so they can feel comfortable.
- We make sure to protect their modesty.
