How Our Home Care Services Can Help Your Loved One With Grooming And Bathing
Comfort Keepers of Guelph, ON can help your loved one maintain good, healthy hygiene.
One of the first signs that your loved one may need help around the house is their inability to groom and care for themselves. Most families realize that their aging senior needs additional assistance when they notice that their parent hasn’t showered, that their hair is greasy, that they are not doing their makeup as usual or that they haven’t changed their clothes in days. Neglecting their personal hygiene is usually a sign that your parent needs home care services.
A lot of seniors are hesitant to the idea of home care. However, these types of services can allow your parent to maintain their independence and age at home, despite their age-related issues. In addition, a caregiver doesn’t have to take care of your loved one 24 hours a day. Depending on your parent’s needs, a home care provider can be hired on a full-time or part-time basis. Having a caregiver to assist them when needed will help your loved one maintain their daily grooming and bathing needs.
If your loved one needs assistance only with their basic grooming and bathing, a caregiver can come to their home for just an hour or maybe even less. A home care provider can help your parent take a bath, put on their clothing, do their hair and makeup and help them with other basic hygiene needs. Caregivers who help seniors’ maintain their hygiene are usually in and out of the home very quickly, and clients are able to return to their daily routine in no time.
Caregivers who assist older adults with grooming and bathing don’t only help them look their best, but also do wonders for their mental health. When seniors who have started to feel down because they are no longer capable of caring for themselves as much as before receive the care they need, they start feeling confident again. Feeling clean and presentable can do wonders for one’s self-esteem. It is important that seniors feel like themselves, which is why caregivers can do their hair and style their clothing in a similar way. With the help of home care providers, older adults can restore the confidence they need in order to continue to enjoy the aging process.
