Many of our patients need help with toileting and bathing.
In the beginning, it can be embarrassing to have a caregiver’s help. But very quickly, the relief of receiving needed care erases all discomfort.
Without help seniors sometimes avoid showers, leaving them feeling soiled and uncomfortable. Accidents can be stressful and humiliating. It’s good to know that it’s all in a day’s work for Seniors In Place home health aides.
Good hygiene is an important component in preserving an elderly client’s dignity. It’s amazing how well our caregivers are able to make our clients feel safe and comfortable, even while taking a shower, a bath, or a bed bath.
