Many elderly people become touchy when the subject of bringing in a home health aid or home attendant comes up in a home health aide or home attendant. All seniors seek to maintain their dignity and privacy, which makes them resistant to the idea of in-home assistance. However, your elderly loved one may need some extra help to maintain good hygiene. After all, poor personal care can lead to serious health problems, such as rashes, bedsores, and even infections. Each of our home care aides is equipped to care for and prevent such complications, as well as to institute a daily routine of good hygiene.
In addition, new devices and technology make it easier than ever for HHA’s to keep an elderly client groomed and healthy. For instance, specially designed razors help ensure that they can shave clients without accidental cuts. Likewise, there are adult diapers that give early warnings of an impending urinary tract infection.
A good HHA will use all available resources and technology to maintain a client’s hygiene. This, in turn, can greatly improve a senior’s quality of life. Once an elder has been properly cared for, including having been showered and groomed, their self-esteem rises. They’re more likely to be active and to venture outside, which is essential for psychological and physical well-being.
