Personal Home Care Services from Comfort Keepers of Traverse City, MI

Our loving caregivers offer dignified personal care and hygiene assistance in Traverse City and the surrounding areas of Northwest Michigan 

If your elderly loved one continues living independently in their own home but finds it challenging to bathe regularly or maintain good hygiene, working with Comfort Keepers might be the best solution. Our locally owned and operated Traverse City office can tailor a personal home care plan based on your parent’s age and acuity and assist with bathing, mobility, dressing, and more. To learn more, call us at (231) 222-5376.

What is Personal Care?

In the caregiving industry, personal care is a broad term used to describe an array of services - providing assistance with basic hygiene tasks and helping preserve overall health, dignity, and wellbeing. 

However, the level of assistance required to achieve this goal significantly varies from person to person. That is why, at Comfort Keepers, we develop customized personal home care plans and meet the specific needs of each client. 

Whether your mom or dad just needs help with getting in and out of a bathtub or requires higher levels of care due to mobility problems, our caregivers are trained and experienced in handling any type of assignment. What is more, we deliver care in a respectful, dignifying way that seeks to minimize any embarrassment or discomfort. 

Besides bathing and grooming, a personal home care aide can help with mobility, changing positions in bed or a wheelchair, incontinence and toileting, meal prep, and much more. We can also include dementia care or fall risk reduction into personal care plans for seniors struggling with memory issues or safety concerns. 

Keeping Up with Bathing and Hygiene

When assisting with personal hygiene needs, our goal is to provide a dignified service while boosting your loved one’s emotional wellness and self-esteem in the process. We want your mom or dad to feel confident, to be proud of their appearance. 

The importance of maintaining good hygiene in golden years is closely connected to your loved one’s overall health, too. By bathing regularly, mom or dad can avoid rashes, irritations, strong odors, and other unpleasant effects of poor hygiene that could worsen their already existing conditions. 

Our personal care plans include but are not limited to assistance with: 

  • Bathing and showering
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Putting on accessories such as belts, watches, jewelry, and so on
  • Combing, braiding, or styling hair
  • Brushing teeth/cleaning dentures
  • Shaving
