At-Home Personal Care Services for Seniors
Everyone likes to feel clean and fresh as well as keep up their personal appearance – and that doesn’t change as people age – it just becomes more difficult to accomplish. Long-standing personal care routines are often modified or eliminated due to lack of mobility or flexibility. For instance, it may be hard to climb in and out of the bathtub or to reach around and wash properly. Poor vision might make it difficult to distinguish between various personal hygiene products.
These initially subtle changes can lead to poor hygiene, lack of cleanliness, slovenly appearance, and eventually a lack of confidence leading to depression. However, it does not have to be this way. Senior homecare services can provide assistance in all areas of personal care. Bathing, grooming, personal hygiene, restroom activities and incontinence care will help to ensure cleanliness, comfort, and improve not only personal appearance – but confidence as well.
Benefits of Elder Care Services in Orland Park
In addition to bathing and related activities, our in-home caregivers provide assistance with getting dressed, walking, exercising, and more. These services are designed to offer an opportunity to live a more active life – a more familiar life. However, the most valuable benefit of choosing Home & Hearth Caregivers to provide senior homecare assistance in Orland Park may be less tangible. That is the benefit of companionship.
No one enjoys living in isolation or fear. Seniors often feel cut off from the rest of the world – especially if they no longer drive or feel confident using public transportation. They may have lost their spouse, their children are often busy raising families of their own or live far away, and they can no longer get out to meet up with their friends or other family members. .
Seniors also become fearful when they are alone day after day – worries compound about the possibility of falling or the fact that they can’t get out to shop or pay their bills. Many things we take for granted when we are young, cause a great deal of stress for the elderly. A caring professional can help change all that.
