Keeping Up with Personal Hygiene
Our appearance and hygiene play a huge part in our confidence. It's hard to live a comfortable, confident life when you are unable to keep up with essential grooming and hygiene tasks.
These tasks may include:
- Showering and bathing
- Getting dressed, including shoes and accessories (belt, watch, jewelry, etc.)
- Brushing teeth or dentures
- Styling and brushing hair
- Makeup application
- Shaving with an electric razor
- Nail trimming or painting
If you or a loved one would like to stay at home but need help with your grooming tasks, contact Comfort Keepers for help.
A Matter of Consistency
With something like bathing, consistency is important — being able to bathe daily, or near daily, is essential to staying healthy. Health issues can be caused by a failure to wash frequently enough, yet senior bathing is a task that gets harder as the years pass. A caregiver will make sure this task is not missed.
Avoid Unnecessary Risk
Bathroom features are not always designed with seniors in mind and can be a fall risk. This is especially true for surfaces that may be wet and slippery after a bath or shower.
Having a caregiver for bathing and hygiene-related tasks can be a way to help avoid falls. A trained caregiver can be there to provide help at every step along the way to make the daily routine not only easier but safer.
At home care takes on many different forms and should be customized to suit the needs of each individual.
