As the average person grows older normal everyday activities like bathing, toileting, and dressing can become more difficult. Once those functional limitations reach a certain point, many aging-in-place seniors require at least some outside assistance to complete essential tasks around their home.

As a concerned family member, meeting all your loved one’s needs when you have your own household to manage or live far away can be challenging. At Kind Senior Care, our reliable personal care solutions provide independent seniors and their families with just the right amount of support when and where it matters most.

Functional Limitations that Independent Seniors Face

In addition to the aging process itself, life-changing events like a stroke, heart attack, chronic illness, dementia, or Alzheimer’s can cause or worsen functional limitations. If there’s a special senior in your life, here are the warning signs to watch for:

  • Frequent falls
  • Driving-related issues
  • Unfinished business (past-due bills, stacks of dirty dishes, etc.)
  • Physical signs
  • Not socializing like they used to
  • Poor hygiene

How Our Compassionate Senior Caregivers Can Help

When it’s time to find a “personal assistant” for your loved one, the compassionate caregivers from Kind Senior Care can step in and restore peace of mind by providing specialized support for one or more activities of daily living.

At Kind Senior Care, our reliable home care agency professions provide services including assistance with personal hygiene tasks like washing, bathing, showering, dressing, and toileting. While using a team approach that involves your family members, we can also assist your loved one with their light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, and companionship needs.

Some of our clients only need stand-by assistance, while others require a more “hands-on” approach to accomplish important tasks. Either way, our team members are highly trained to perform these duties using a proven formula that’s designed to empower your loved one with dignity and respect.

What does personal care for the elderly include?

Personal care for the elderly is just the same as personal care for any aged individual. Daily tasks such as bathing or showering, grooming, dressing, oral hygiene, and feeding assistance are included in personal care. 

Why is personal care important for seniors?

Personal care may be more important for seniors than for any other age. Many risks for decreasing physical and mental health arise for seniors, so completing daily personal care tasks can help maintain physical and mental health. Seniors will feel better once finishing their daily routine of showering, dressing, and brushing their teeth.

How do I ensure my senior loved one is maintaining personal care?

  • Walking, transferring, and ambulation assistance
