All that make it unpleasant to take a shower, get dressed, or even sit and stand from the toilet. And you should understand theĀ  importance of getting helpĀ for your elderly loved ones. We provide the best home care service in Westminster CO.

Helping an Elderly Parent With Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene

Why is that service important?

Getting help from a professional caregiver has benefits to offer not only the elderly, but the family caregivers who love and support them. Bathing and dressing can be easier said than done for older adults. A professional caregiver knows practices and techniques that can make these routines safer and more accommodating, above what an informal family caregiver can offer.

What is included?

Our companions are trained and bonded, and can help provide a variety of services designed to help your loved one remain in the comfort and safety of their own home. Companions are available for full-time or part-time care, and can help your senior loved one keep up with grooming, bathing.

How often should an elderly person bathe?

At a minimum, bathing once or twice a week helps most seniors avoid skin breakdown and infections. Using warm washcloths to wipe armpits, groin, genitals, feet, and any skin folds also helps minimize body odor in between full baths. However, some dementia caregivers say itā€™s actually easier to bathe every day.
