In Home Senior Care In Wichita, KS Can Help You With Bathing And Grooming

Find out how Comfort Keepers' in home senior care in Wichita, KS can help you look and feel your best with bathing and grooming assistance.

Most American seniors would prefer to spend their days in their own home as they age. Research suggests that this is a wise choice with many benefits. Seniors who live at home tend to recover faster from illnesses, are more active, and are less likely to be readmitted to a hospital for the same condition after discharge. Seniors who age in place are also statistically happier and have a greater enjoyment of life. That said, many seniors are not as mobile or agile as they once were and have a difficult time with daily living tasks and personal care. That is why Comfort Keeper’ in home senior care is available to provide custom-tailored solutions to meet your needs.

Comfort Keepers provides in-home support that makes it possible for you to safely and independently age in place even with physical, mental, or emotional challenges. This in home senior care also includes more discreet personal care tasks such as bathing and grooming.

Many seniors limit their bathing because they are afraid of slipping and falling. This is not an unreasonable fear as most falls occur in the home and many of those take place in the bathroom. Avoiding proper cleaning and hygiene, however, comes with its own set of problems, including dry skin, exfoliative dermatitis, senile purpura, unpleasant smells, and simply not feeling good about yourself.

Comfort Keepers caregivers are trained and sensitive when it comes to bathing and grooming. They know how to properly wash senior skin to avoid bruising or tearing and can recommend products designed to strengthen and moisturize your skin to make it look and feel healthier. While skin folds and intimate areas may be a concern, rest assured that Comfort Keepers’ in home senior care strives to maintain discretion and privacy while making sure these areas are properly cleaned.

Good grooming matters, too. It's not just about looking good, proper grooming helps reduce the risk of illness. From brushing teeth and flossing to hand and foot care, shaving, and so forth, keeping up with the little things can keep them from becoming a larger issue later on.
