Perhaps you have heard the phrase “personal care” before in the home care service industry, but you were unaware of what exactly this means. Home Instead Senior Care® personal care services provides your aging loved one with the most sensitive and private tasks of their domestic life. In other words, personal care means that your loved one is provided with support in the bathroom or bedroom for all of their toileting, bathing, grooming, and dressing needs.
When it comes to performing family CAREGiverSM tasks, studies have consistently shown that the most challenging tasks for caretakers occur when the primary CAREGiver must assist their family members with personal care tasks in the bathroom or bedroom. Family CAREGivers are naturally uncomfortable when they are trying to help their elderly loved one with their toileting, bathing, and changing needs and the family member often feels ashamed or embarrassed to be stuck in this difficult scenario as well. In addition, many family CAREGivers are often overwhelmed with the physical requirements of these personal care tasks which can create an even more awkward and even unsafe environment for both parties involved. Although personal care is a challenge for Carnegie family CAREGivers, there is a solution.
