SHOWERING AND BATHING
Showering and bathing can be difficult as we age but Lares Home Care is there to assist. When we perform our original assessment the nurse will develop a bathing plan that works for you or your loved one. Complete showering and bathing on a daily basis may not be necessary, but we recommend washing face, hands, groin, and underarms daily. A good routine can make seniors feel better about themselves and personally relaxed.
An inspection of the bathroom is also part of the initial assessment which will point out safety items to that need to be addressed like the need for a shower chair, grab bars, hand held shower head, and non-slip rugs.
