Taking time to groom helps a person with self-respect and a sense of independence. As we age, this can become more challenging or even impossible without the assistance of a loved one or a caregiver. Assistance with grooming is an important task that allows individuals to live independently without losing dignity and grace.

Here are some helpful hints:

  • If unable to go to the barber or beauty shop, see if you can get someone to come to the house to trim hair.
  • Washing hair in the sink may be easier than washing in shower and bath tub.
  • Keep hair style that is low maintenance
  • Using an electric razor may be simpler to use than a metal razor
  • Trim nails twice a month or see a podiatrist for bunions, corns or cracked skin. Also, see a podiatrist if you require medical attention when cutting nails.
  • Use Dry Shampoo products if you are unable to wash hair.
