As we age, we all need a little bit of help. If your loved one is starting to lose some of their mental or physical ability, suffered a major medical event or are transitioning back home from the hospital or rehabilitation facility, home care services for seniors can help them stay at home and live well.
Personal care is a critical aspect of home care services for seniors. Taking care of their appearance will not only help your loved one stay healthy and fresh and feel physically better, they will also feel better emotionally and mentally. Knowing you can look after yourself positively impacts self-esteem and will give your loved one a sense of pride that is priceless and makes home care services for seniors worth every penny.
Comfort Keepers in Georgian Triangle provide a number of personal care services. They include the following:
Grooming, and Hygiene
Our caregivers will help your loved one with their daily grooming and hygiene routine so they can look and feel their best. We can help your loved one bathe, shampoo, shave (with an electric shaver), comb their hair and style it, and with other grooming needs.
Our caregiver can help your loved one with any mobility challenges they may be facing and help them stay as active as possible. Activity and engagement have been shown to have a number of positive mental and physical effects. Some of the positive sides of physical activity include increased stamina and energy, a strengthened heart, lower blood pressure and improved digestion and sleep. Your loved one could also experience an improved mood and less stress.
Transferring and Positioning
Our home care services for seniors include helping your loved one with transferring and positioning. Our caregivers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture position to promote health and safety and proper functioning of the body’s many systems. This could reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and bathroom schedule.

Our caregivers have undergone sensitivity training and will do all they can to make sure your loved one feels comfortable. Discretion and your loved one’s comfort is our goal.

We can help your loved one with feeding, but also with meal preparation. This includes making sure your loved one sticks to any dietary restrictions they may have.
