Personal Hygiene Care Plan
Lincolnshire & Yorkshire
The act of getting washed and dressed may seem like a basic thing but when mobility or conditions prevent you from completing these tasks for yourself, it may be time for some assistance.
Aside from being difficult or uncomfortable, it may be embarrassing, especially if a family member or friend has to see you at your most vulnerable.
It does not need to be this way.
The Great Care Company can provide private carers who will take care of your hygiene, personal care and basic human needs. Our sympathetic, discreet and well-trained staff will aid you in the process and ensure that your dignity and self-respect are maintained in the manner we'd wish our own family members to be looked after.
Personal Hygiene Carers When You Need Them
You may require short or long-term assistance with your basic needs and we're here to help.
Washing and getting dressed may be something that most of us take for granted but if it is something you or your loved one find difficult, please feel free to get in touch and see if we can provide carers for this purpose. Please do not struggle on your own.
Question: What Is A Washing & Dressing Care Plan?
Remaining clean and smartly dressed is an essential part of staying well mentally and physically. Your loved ones may not always be able to do this for themselves so a carer can provide support and ensure safety and comfort are prioritised.
Personal hygiene is not simply a case of being clean; it should ensure that regular and thorough washing of the person's body is being carried out. This includes washing hair, dental (and gum) care, regular washing of hands and ensuring that clothing, bed linen and towels are all nice and fresh.
Keeping clean and reducing the risks of bacterial or viral infections can really benefit a person's health. Something as simple as regularly washing hands will make a big difference, as recent world events have demonstrated.
As people get older or develop long term conditions, it is possible they may lose their sense of smell making it harder for them to know when the need for a wash arises. Keeping a regular washing schedule eliminates the fuss and embarrassment and maintains personal dignity.
Restrictions in movement can prove especially difficult if a person requires the use of urinal aids (pads, catheters etc) which a carer can maintain discreetly without any fuss.
Carers make sure that urinal aids are correctly used and applied, as well as regularly changed or emptied. A few simple acts can make a big difference to a person's dignity and wellbeing.
A personal Hygiene Care Plan would ensure that a carer visits the person in their charge at set times on agreed days, maintaining a routine for cleanliness, washing and saving any sort of embarrassment for all involved.
Carers At Home Or Full TIme Care? Personal Care At Home
Vs Care Homes
Not all situations require full-time care and a person should have the choice between care homes or care in their own home. Personal hygiene care is a perfect example, where limited mobility or other factors may restrict a person's ability to maintain cleanliness. This should not be met with stigma. Carers can come to your home and help, as and when you need them to.
Private personal carers are a great way of keeping all the benefits you have from being at home, without losing any of the things you might miss whilst in full-time care.
The obvious benefit of being assisted with personal washing and grooming as well as cleaning, changing bedclothes, towels and linen might be improved physical health but it can be a real boost mentally and to personal self-esteem.
Our carers work on a one-on-one ratio so you have a familiar face rather than an ever-changing network of staff and carers. Many care homes will use a lot of staff members and this may be disturbing to a person when they feel at their most vulnerable.
When care staff visit you in your own home, it allows you to keep your independence, maintain relationships with family and friends, keep your beloved pets and uphold good cleanliness and hygiene standards. We're here to help you live your life as normally as possible and we believe that should be in your own home.
