Personal At Home Senior Care
For family carers, bathing a loved one can prove to be a difficult challenge. One of the reasons for this is because of its intimate nature. Some seniors may get angry, embarrassed, or both, especially in the early days. We bathe ourselves without giving it a second thought, but bathing others is a completely different situation. It's a skill, and one that requires strength, patience, compassion, and knowhow.
Our skilled Comfort Keepers intuitively know how to handle these situations and relax those they're helping. It doesn't usually take long for what seemed like as unpleasant or intrusive experience to become a normal routine.
Standard, professional practice for bathing and grooming clients include:
- Make the bathroom safe
- Have all bathing supplies ready well in advance
- Make the room as comfortable as possible
- Place bathing supplies like soap, shampoo, etc, within easy reach
- Closely monitor water temperatures
Professional at home senior care also engages the client as much as possible:
- Give the senior choices in the bathroom
- Be sure the person has a role whenever possible
- Protect the person's dignity and privacy at all times
- Make sure to use a same sex caregiver it that's important to the client
Care For Mobility
The better a senior feels, the better they function, and the better they function, the better they feel. It's a winning cycle. Our Comfort Keepers commit 100% to quality client care. Some seniors develop mobility issues and need help with regular tasks like bathing & grooming. Wherever possible, we work with clients to make them more mobile. If that's not possible, we can stimulate limbs for them. We also encourage brain exercises so that they remain alert, sharp, and able to engage.
Our popular Interactive Caregiving™ philosophy covers many areas of at home senior care & support. We have designed them specifically to help aging locals live independent lives in their own place. Our methods encourage physical activity and mental stimulation through fun and friendly activities.
