Our Service Offering: Essential Bathing Assistance for Seniors
We understand that older adults’ hygiene needs are crucial, yet often overlooked. Although they might not be as active as their younger counterparts, maintaining personal hygiene should not be ignored. Hygiene care for seniors extends beyond physical health to mental health, identifying and managing any mental disorders, boosting self-esteem and emotional stability at this delicate age of ageing. Our bathing assistance, therefore, functions as a dual service, caring for their physical and mental health.
Questions You May Have:
How frequently should a senior person bathe?
Optimal hygiene, especially for those with chronic conditions or cognitive deficits, involves bathing at least twice a week, although daily bathing is recommended if possible. This regimen not only keeps their skin healthy but also fosters a sense of self-care and independence.
Why might seniors resist bathing?
Seniors may feel discomfort or hypersensitivity about needing help, fear of falling, confusion due to dementia or another mental disorder, or embarrassment about exposure. They may also struggle with a declining sense of smell or other aspects of suffering associated with ageing.
At what stage of dementia might seniors stop bathing?
Typically, seniors may cease bathing during stages 5 and 6 of dementia, often forgetting the purpose of bathing, or developing a sensitivity to the feel of water on their skin, a sequela of the disease.
How do you bathe someone who is unable to walk?
For immobile individuals, a bed bath or sponge bath can be a practical solution. Our team can assist with these techniques, ensuring safety, comfort, and proper skin care, while also being cognizant of rectum health.
How do we give a sponge bath to an elderly person?
Our sponge bath process includes:
- Laying the person on a bed with towels beneath them
- Filling a basin with warm water
- Preparing a sponge and necessary supplies, including topical medication if required
- Covering the individual with a towel and carefully removing clothing from underneath
- Gently washing the body with soap and warm water
- Washing hair by tilting the head towards the basin
- Extra care is taken to clean thoroughly, ensuring we don’t overlook body folds and private areas.
From pharmacy coordination for medication, considering immunology, to dealing with the intricacies of elderly care, such as rectal health and digestion, our bathing assistance services are comprehensive and designed with your loved one’s comfort in mind. We provide surveillance to monitor any changes in health conditions, offering information and assistance as necessary to facilitate a healthy everyday life for the elderly.
Why Loving Homecare Inc.?
It was such a pleasure to work with Loving Homecare for my Dad's recovery after his stroke. We needed overnight care for him and Loving Homecare was able to find us the most gentle and caring caregivers we could have wished for. Tanner and Leslie were also there to answer and help whenever questions arose. I would not hesitate to call Loving Homecare again to help with my parents.
After several weeks of caring for my husband at home following a severe leg injury that rendered him immobile and unsafe to be left alone for any extended time, I desperately needed help and some respite. I was referred to Loving Homecare, Inc by a very trusted friend who had used them in the past and referred others who were highly satisfied with every aspect of their care and services. Tanner Gish and his team could not have been more responsive and caring.
VETERAN FRIENDLY 🇺🇸 as a Veteran I am skeptical of any business that says they are Military friendly but Loving Homecare lives up to their name.
Years ago I sent a Family Friend, who is a Combat Veteran, to this business. I only heard positive things. Loving Homecare is approved by the VA and I highly encourage any person, Veteran or not, to call and try out their services. Tanner & Orianne are great trustworthy, people.
