Personal Care in St. Matthews, KY
Preferred Personal Care Choice Of St. Matthews Families
If you are a primary CAREGiverSM, you may at times feel overwhelmed with all of the caretaking responsibilities. Providing the right personal care for a aging loved one may be the principal cause of this anxiety. Personal care refers to the very personalized care that elderly, disabled, and ailing patients need provided for them. In other words, toileting, washing, bathing, incontinence care, grooming, and dressing are all tasks many ailing loved ones cannot do on their own.
Personal Care is Beneficial for St. Matthews Families
Providing this type of care is stressful for loved ones for a variety of reasons. First off, if you have only limited experience with no professional training in caretaking then you are obviously not going to be confident in the tasks that need to be performed for personal care. Secondly, it is psychologically challenging for both the CAREGiver and the senior loved one to be entrapped in this situation. The family member may feel ashamed of their current health position and needing help; whereas, the caregiver can feel uncomfortable assisting their family member. Safety and accident prevention are always a major concern as well.
