What Are Personal Care Services?
Personal care is a type of service that supports older and disabled adults perform basic tasks for hygiene, activities of daily living, mobility, nutrition, and more. We understand that needing assistance with tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming can be a difficult thing for any adult, which is why we promise that our professionals provide this service with the dignity and respect you or your loved one deserves. Personal care services are especially helpful for individuals who are recovering from a surgery, hospital visit, or are suffering from a variety of conditions or illnesses.
We are there to help clients look and feel their absolute best so they can conquer the day ahead of them. If you or an aging loved one need assistance due to fear of falling or a certain limitation, we can assist with the following grooming routines:
- 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
Our personal care services also include assistance with mobility to ensure our clients can get to where they need to go without the risk of injury. We can make sure walkways and living spaces are tidy so there are no accidental trips. Caregivers can also lend their arm for support when walking throughout the home or even out and about!
Our care coordinators can also provide a complimentary fall risk assessment of your home.
Transferring and Repositioning Assistance
As we age, moving around the house can become more difficult. One of our top priorities is helping our clients move around their homes comfortably. This may include getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs.
Proper transferring and repositioning can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. This also helps reduce muscle atrophy, while encouraging proper breathing and digestion. It can also lower the risk of falls and injuries.
Toileting and Incontinence Assistance
We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living.
At Comfort Keepers Home Care, we can establish a plan that revolves around daily hygiene. By building a trusted relationship, our caregivers can help you or your loved one in the comfort of home. A big part of our personal care services is helping clients remain clean and comfortable.
Incontinence can be a difficult issue for anyone to talk about, but it is important to discuss! If one is not willing to ask for help, hygiene issues can arise and may compound over time.
Nutrition and Meal Preparation
One great benefit to having a Comfort Keepers Home Care provider come into your home is that they will prepare meals for you! This is great for individuals who have a strict diet, busy schedule, are unable to cook for themselves, or for people that simply do not want to deal with the hassle of cooking. Our providers can follow strict nutrition plans to help enable a healthy lifestyle or they can cook a client’s favorite home-made meals. Once the meal is cooked, we can take care of the cleanup and even store leftovers for future meals throughout the week.
