Elderly Home Care Helps Seniors In Shelton, CT With Bathing And Grooming

Find out how elderly home care can offer crucial personal care support to seniors in Shelton, CT

Aging is a wonderful blessing, but it can also bring its share of challenges. Thankfully, with the prevalence of elderly home care, seniors no longer must let those challenges keep them from aging in place and enjoying the comforts and conveniences of their own home. Put another way, there is no reason that a senior should not live in their own home and be surrounded by the people and things they love just because they need a little support with housekeeping or personal care.

Comfort Keepers provides a wide range of in-home supports designed to keep seniors free, independence, and safely residing in their own homes even if they need a little help to do so. One of the most important areas of support is in bathing and grooming. Because bathing and grooming are quite personal, many seniors do not seek the elderly home care they need early on. For this reason, a senior's appearance and hygiene deteriorates and becomes one of the first indicators to family and friends that their loved one could use some support.

Additionally, bathrooms, the area most bathing and grooming takes place, are the primary locations for senior falls. This is important because senior falls are the primary cause of accident-related injury and death in seniors over the age of 65. Many of the fall risks associated with bathing and grooming can be easily moderated by an in-home caregiver.

Bathing and grooming are not just important for a senior to look good. Proper bathing, grooming, and hygiene also reduce the risk of sickness and help seniors stay healthy. When seniors cannot give themselves an in-depth cleanse due to lack of mobility, strength, flexibility, etc, the risk of illness and infection increases.

In addition to helping seniors bathe, Comfort Keepers caregivers also provide help with choosing the right skin care products; caring for the hair, nails, and feet; and providing an extra set of helping hands when they are needed.

Each of Comfort Keepers supports is custom-tailored and personalized to meet a senior's unique needs. The amount and intensity of bathing and hygiene support is entirely dependent on the senior, their requirements, and how they like to be assisted.
