Find out how our senior in home care can help your loved one in Colorado Springs, CO with personal care like bathing and grooming.
Half of seniors over the age of 65 require some degree of support with daily living activities. These numbers increase with age. Despite their need for assistance, many American seniors want to age in place. This means that regardless of their physical, mental, or emotional challenges, seniors want to remain in the comfort, convenience, and familiarity of their own home.
One of the most challenging of in-home services is bathing and grooming. Bathing and grooming are not challenging from a standpoint of difficulty but from the viewpoint of privacy. Having somebody help you with intimate senior in home care can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Comfort Keepers understands these feelings. Therefore, Comfort Keepers caregivers are highly trained and strive to provide the highest levels of privacy and discretion while maximizing self-esteem and independence.
Comfort Keepers caregivers are carefully selected to work with seniors and are not randomly assigned or rotating through rounds. This gives caregivers and seniors the chance to get to know one another, develop a care routine, and establish trust. After all, nobody wants to have a stranger come into their home and start to bathe them.
Comfort Keepers senior in home care providers also understand the special care necessary when working with older skin. From the right choice of exfoliants and shampoos to working with common skin conditions, such as dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, and purpura, Comfort Keepers caregivers can suggest products and techniques that can protect a senior's skin.
