Many times, a person may find they can live independently but need assistance with personal care in their daily routine. A good morning routine that includes a shower, personal hygiene, and getting dressed for the day, can make a huge difference in a person’s overall outlook and mental wellbeing. This goes hand in hand with our focus on quality of life and promoting independence.
If a client needs assistance with personal care, our qualified and trained caregivers can help support, assist, or provide these services. We aid with all forms of personal care in a variety of situations depending on the client’s needs from an individual who simply needs someone in the home while they shower independently just in case, they need help, to a client who needs full assistance with bathing and toileting, and everything in between. Our caregivers understand the need for a client’s privacy and work to ensure the client is always safe and comfortable.
