The Importance Of Elderly Home Care
Seniors who live at home alone don't usually like to make a fuss, though perhaps they should do. In other words, their silence doesn't always let their loved ones know what's going on in their lives. At Comfort Keepers of Clinton Township, MI, our caregivers can get care recipients to speak out when something's not right. They can also spot things that others without special training may overlook.
Caregivers who work at the more personal level get to know their client's very well. And their training and professionalism means they intuitively know when something needs addressing. We'll look at the importance of senior bathing and grooming to illustrate.
Why Senior Bathing And Grooming Matters
Anyone who's well groomed and washed feels good about themselves. This includes seniors, even those who are bedbound. And when people feel good physically they respond well mentally. All-over skin care does more than make a person feel great. Older people unable to wash themselves— or clean themselves thoroughly—may not be able to get into the skin folds that increase with age. The most problematic areas are around the neck, armpits, below the breasts, stomach folds, and the groin. If left unchecked, these areas can become breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. Proper drying is as important as cleaning. It helps to prevent fungal infections, which can often be difficult to treat effectively. There's a lot more to cleaning others than there is to cleaning ourselves.
Respite For The Family Caregiver
Although family caregivers do a fantastic job, most have no training in areas of personal elderly home care. In some cases they can unknowingly become part of the problem instead of the solution. There's also the physical aspect to consider. Knowing how to move and position seniors is another area that requires special training. Professional caregivers don't suffer with embarrassment issues either.
Bathing & grooming is just one example that illustrates how professional caregiving benefits those who want to age with dignity and independence in their beloved homes.
