At NurtureCare, we refer caregivers who can assist in helping individuals maintain an independent and dignified lifestyle.
A referred caregiver can assist your loved ones with bathing, toileting, dressing, and overall personal hygiene so that they will look and feel their best.
Enhancing Well-Being Through Personal Hygiene Assistance
As individuals age, day-to-day activities such as taking a bath or shower can become more difficult. Illness, injuries, medications and chronic conditions can make otherwise ordinary tasks challenging, leading to a deterioration in overall health and wellness. Trouble with balance, vision and coordination can make daily tasks like getting dressed, shaving and grooming hard for many older people, and without good personal hygiene, skin infections, dental problems and overall health issues can emerge.
Many seniors become reclusive and withdraw from social activities simply because they are no longer able to take care of their own basic needs, which can lead to further health issues. With help from experienced caregivers, your loved one can look and feel their best.
Improved Safety and Peace of Mind
Bathrooms are often referred to as being the most dangerous room in the home, especially for the older adult, because life-altering slips and falls can happen on the hard, wet, slippery surfaces of the bathtub and flooring tiles. The fear of falling in the bathroom can cause anxiety for both you and your loved ones, especially if they have already sustained a fall injury or are dealing with multiple health issues.
With the assistance of a professional caregiver, your loved one can enjoy the safety and security that comes with one-on-one assistance during bathing and toileting. Help from an experienced caregiver can reduce the risk of injury in the bathroom, providing you with peace of mind that your loved one will receive the assistance they need.
