For family caretakers, there is nothing more challenging and emotionally trying than trying to provide personal care for a aging family member or loved one. At Home Instead Senior Care®, we refer to personal care as care that a certified CAREGiverSM provides to Bridgewater families in the most sensitive of home health service areas including: toileting, bathing, incontinence care, personal hygiene, dressing, and grooming needs.
This often intrusive form of caretaking can be physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing for both the family CAREGiver and also for the family member. It's no secret that this is an awkward environment for both the primary CAREGiver and the family member and often this uncomfortable situation is only compounded by the fact that the caregiver does not have the right experience, knowledge, or training to properly assist their loved one. Moreover, the family member is often ashamed or embarrassed with their medical situation and may even be unresponsive to the caretaker. In many cases, the safety of the family member is also at risk as well considering that the family CAREGiver is not confident and proficient in performing the personal care actions effectively.
