Private Home Care Helps You Maintain a Personal Care Routine in Williamsport, PA & the Surrounding Area
Find out how private home care in Williamsport, PA can help you look and feel your best with bathing and grooming assistance.
Most American seniors want to age-in-place. This means that they want to continue to live at home throughout their elder years even if they are not as agile or mobile as they once were. Comfort Keepers® private home care is designed to help you maintain your independence and freedom despite physical, mental, or emotional challenges that make daily living tasks and personal care like bathing & grooming difficult.
We know that bathing and grooming is important for appearance and self-esteem, but it is also important for overall health. When a quick wash replaces in-depth cleansing due to chronic pain, mobility, challenges or other limiting condition, skin conditions, infections, and even growths can result, including exfoliative dermatitis, senile purpura, and stasis dermatitis.
Private home care offers supports and crucial assistance with maintaining a daily bathing & grooming routine. Some examples of these supports include:
- Mobility assistance, including transferring in and out of the bath or shower
- Physical bathing or shower support
- Skin care, including helping seniors choose the right products for their particular skin and hair
- Toileting, incontinence, and perineal care
- Bed baths for seniors who are bedridden
- Oral hygiene support
- Nail care
- Hand and foot care
- Transferring and positioning
When you maintain a proper bathing & grooming routine, you will find that you look and feel better, have increased self-esteem, and have an overall better quality of life. Comfort Keepers® believes that just because you are having trouble or challenges with one or more of these areas does not mean that you should miss out on their benefits.
