Bathing is essential to an individual’s personal hygiene and more importantly, to the way a person feels. Not only do our bathing services ensure that clients continue to feel comfortable in social situations, but they also maintain skin integrity, stimulate circulation, and reduce the potential for infection.
Keeping on the move is vital to both mental and physical well-being. Senior Solutions at Home makes sure that movement occurs on a regular basis and takes into account any physical limitations for each client.
Positioning clients in the proper postures is something often overlooked in the elderly home care regimen. However, proper posture encourages better digestion and circulation, and aides in the prevention of muscle atrophy and skin sores.
Assistance with urinary and bowel care can be vital to remaining socially active. Our caregivers and home health aides understand the sensitivity of this situation and are experienced with providing such care.
Aging and disabled clients may lack the fine motor skills required for something most people take for granted. Assisting with proper mouth, gum, and denture care can be vital in the prevention of tooth decay, gum disease, and other infection.
Our caregivers and administrators will work with family and other healthcare professionals to plan meals according to clients’ specific needs. This could include specifications for diabetics, low sodium needs, puree, or others.
In some cases, clients are unable to feed themselves. Senior Solutions at Home caregivers are sensitive to the emotional issues connected with the inability to perform this basic function and can provide caregivers trained in the appropriate safety precautions.
This is another basic life function, that when lost, is difficult to deal with emotionally. Senior Solutions at Home caregivers know how to discreetly aid in this sensitive area, providing physical help and addressing all types of toileting needs.
