In getting to know you as a person, your care plan will take into account your likes and dislikes, which hygiene or beauty products you prefer and want to use as well as what and who you feel most comfortable with. Specific tasks, such as cutting nails, shaving and diabetic foot care, will always be outlined in your support plan with specific instructions for your caregiver. We offer home care assistance in Oklahoma City that is geared to your specific needs!
Each caregiver is thoroughly trained to provide personal care in a way that is discreet and respectful of your personal boundaries. Their training has an emphasis on the importance of maintaining your dignity and independence at all times.
Even though caregivers are trained to provide all of the aspects of personal care, there may be some things you’d prefer to do for yourself. A good caregiver will always respect your space when you want it and encourage your independence wherever they can.
Like all forms of care, support with personal care is built completely around your individual needs and personal routines. If you like to wash before breakfast or have a bath before going to bed, our caregivers will happily respect your preferences, letting you live the way you want.
With personal home care, you have the choice of having a visiting caregiver – someone who visits at pre-set times of the day or even overnight to provide you or your loved ones the support you need. If you require ongoing support, we can offer round-the-clock care to provide 24 hour care.
Many of our care providers support with other tasks in addition to personal care. In fact, we can assist with medication reminders, help those with limited mobility to move safely around the home (especially using hoists and supports) and can prepare meals, complete household chores and even offer companionship services, ongoing support and encouragement.
Please get in touch with our team to find out more about what a caregiver can offer you. A Care Plus Home Care specialist can even visit you at home to discuss the options and arrange the precise type of support you’re looking for.
Sometimes personal care matters can be difficult for a close family member or friend to carry out, sometimes feeling awkward about a change in relationship or uncomfortable about completing the more intimate tasks.
In instances like these, it can be much easier for a trained carer who is accustomed to supporting with personal care to step in and help. Choosing someone that your loved one feels comfortable with – whether they are male, female, young or old – means that carer becomes a regular friendly face offering gentle encouragement, and even an extra source of support.
Please get in touch if you’d like to speak to one of our home care experts about personal care or any of the other types of support we have available.
It is common for someone who is living with dementia or Alzheimer’s to need personal home care support. This can be difficult at times, if that person is feeling anxious or confused about who people are and shame and embarrassment over more intimate activities such as bathing and dressing or help going to the bathroom.
We train our caregivers to be aware of any sources of anxiety or resulting aggression from someone who is living with any type of dementia. They offer gentle encouragement and support to help your loved one feel at ease. Sometimes it’s as simple as offering them some extra space, or just demonstrating a task for them.
Building trust is always essential, and a regular caregiver can build an ongoing relationship and rapport. That caregiver will encourage independence as much as possible, allowing your loved one to make choices themselves, such as what clothes they’d like to wear, and maintaining the daily routines that are most important to them.
Many of our customers are living with some form of dementia, which is why we provide dementia training to each of our caregivers. We have plenty of experience and are here to help with promoting your loved one’s independence and even provide advice or support to you or your family if you are struggling.
