Spencer's Top Personal Care Choice

There are many factors to consider when providing a senior loved one with their personal care needs. Personal care is the term we use in the home care service industry to define helping aging loved ones in the ways they cannot care for themselves. Personal care means the CAREGiverSM is providing the patient with assistance in the restroom, bedroom, washing or bathing. These tasks can be very challenging and stressful responsibilities to provide to an ailing family member.

Bathrooms are where the majority of personal care activities take place. They also are where the majority of serious injuries occur in the household. In fact, over half of injuries to people over the age of 80 are in the bathroom. Many of these slip-and-fall types of accidents result in significant aches and pains, bone fractures, or even death. Along with all the personal care needs a primary CAREGiver must tend to, this is another stressful truth that CAREGivers must consider.
