Bathing, Personal Hygiene, and Home Health Care Services in Palatine, IL
Comfort Keepers provides home health care services that include bathing, grooming, and a variety of personal care services for seniors in Palatine, IL, and the surrounding areas
As we age, our fine motor skills tend to decline. This makes basic hygiene tasks like bathing more difficult to do on our own. When a senior is unable to perform these basic self-care tasks, they are at higher risk of physical illness as well as mental illness. At Comfort Keepers of Palatine, IL, we recognize the importance of helping seniors stay on top of their health which is why we offer home health care services that include bathing and hygiene assistance.
Why Hygiene Matters
As seniors get older, their skin can become brittle and thin, which makes them more susceptible to small cuts and scrapes which can, in turn, lead to an infection. With regular bathing and washing, seniors can maintain a healthy lifestyle while feeling and looking their best. Our home health care services provided by our caregivers are discreet and allow seniors to get the help they need without embarrassment.
Proper bathing and hygiene are equally as important for mental health as it is physical health. When seniors feel good and are confident in their appearance, they have confidence and are more likely to engage in social interaction and continue to participate in the activities that bring them joy.
How Home Health Care Services Can Help
At Comfort Keepers, we provide home health care services to ensure that your loved one’s basic needs are met while encouraging them to keep an active lifestyle and find joy in every day. Our caregivers can help your loved one with bathing, dressing, moisturizing, brushing hair, makeup application, and more.
We understand the sensitivity and vulnerability that comes with asking for help with personal care tasks, which is why we screen our caregivers not only for caregiving experience but for compassion. The comfort of the seniors in our care is our top priority and our caregivers are always putting the needs of their clients first and treating them with respect. We encourage seniors to be independent and continue doing any tasks that they can and want to do themselves - but when they need a little help, we’ll be there.
