Personal care means anything personal. Our experienced carers can assist with tasks such as bathing, showering, applying creams and lotions, dressing and helping to the bathroom, continence management and general laundry, all in the comfort of your own home.
Personal care is essential for good health and self-esteem. Providing and receiving personal care is a very intimate activity. Therefore, establishing trust and communication is critical. Understanding the sensitivity around privacy and modesty is the first step in successfully assisting with personal care.
Patience and allowing ample time to complete personal care are critical to a successful relationship between client and carer. We emphasise building solid relationships so clients feel no loss of dignity, feel at ease and are happy with their carer.
