About Personal Care
When you or a loved one wish to receive in home, personal care service, our licensed home health care team will meet with you, and should you wish, other family members, to discuss your in-place care needs. We will assist only with the everyday self-care tasks you would like assistance with, and understand that over time, those may change, increasing or decreasing according to your needs.
Personal Care compassionately assists you or a loved family member tackling the following everyday tasks:
A critical part of any self-care routine is personal hygiene. The sense of well being and positive self esteem from maintaining personal cleanliness makes positive contributions to feelings of self-worth and independence. Our licensed trained caregivers can assist with all aspects of this process. Be it running a bath, accessing a shower, personal cleaning, even helping maintain balance when transitioning from one bathroom activity to another.
Occasionally, for those dealing with cognitive and mobility issues, getting dressed can be difficult. Perhaps the ability to determine the most appropriate clothing according to weather or comfort needs is presently compromised. Arthritic joints and other chronic inflammatory conditions can impact our ability to fasten zippers, buttons, remove or add items of clothing as needed.
Incontinence and Bathroom Support
Safety and dignity is uppermost when administering bathroom or incontinence support. Whether or you your family member requires balance assistance while using the bathroom, or complete incontinence care, our licensed home health care team will provide the most sensitive personal care capable of supporting the most personal of needs. Attention can be paid to areas vulnerable to skin integrity issues as needed, leaving the client clean and dry, limiting the risk of skin and other uncomfortable infections.
Limitations such as balance, joint mobility, and cognitive decline all present difficulties accessing important medical appointments and community events. These social engagements and medical appointments are vital to a loved one’s wellbeing. Memory Lane Home Health Care provides concierge level transportation enabling your or a loved one to arrive at a supportive event. Whether medical or purely social, our experienced, locally based home care team can help get you there, stay with you if necessary, and return you home, safe and sound.
