Infections and illnesses are bound to arise if seniors do not make good personal hygiene a priority. For this reason, Comfort Keepers of Wheeling, IL is pleased to support older adults with bathing, grooming, and other tasks related to personal hygiene. When seniors are clean and put together, they become more confident.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Since going to the toilet is a task that is taught to children at a very young age, incontinence can be incredibly embarrassing to seniors. Fortunately, Comfort Keepers can support seniors who are struggling with toileting and incontinence without taking away their dignity. They will look for visible cues that show a senior needs to use the restroom, give simple instructions and reminders to use the toilet on a regular basis, and dress them in easy to remove clothing.
Transferring and Positioning
Proper transferring and positioning is a crucial part of in home care at Comfort Keepers. By repositioning seniors correctly and regularly, older adults can reduce the risk of stiffness, muscle retraction, tissue breakdown and the development of ulcers. Our Comfort Keepers use proper techniques to ensure a safe transfer and position every time.
Many seniors find that getting around is tougher than it used to be. A loss in mobility may prevent them from enjoying life outside of the home and participating in the hobbies and interests that make them happy. Comfort Keepers can assist with mobility and make it easy for seniors to get to where they need to and want to go.
Feeding and Diet Assistance
Malnutrition and other health issues can occur if seniors are unable to properly feed themselves or stick to their prescribed diets. Our caregivers can turn mealtime into a fun event and make sure older adults are consuming nutritious foods that align with their diet.
