Grooming, and Hygiene
Coastal Senior Care's goal is to assist our clients with their personal care routines so they can look and feel their best. As a person ages, grooming can sometimes present physical challenges. Our caregivers assist clients with shampooing, shaving (with an electric shaver), hair combing and styling, and other grooming needs so seniors can look and feel their best. For clients who fear falling while bathing, or have physical or cognitive limitations that make bath-time difficult, our caregivers are there to help.
Selecting appropriate clothing and getting dressed can become difficult with age. Putting on shoes and socks and fastening buttons and zippers can present a challenge. Our caregivers will help with dressing and making sure that client's clothing choices are appropriate for the weather and activity.
Remaining active in your golden years is one of the best ways to maintain the quality of life. Our caregivers help seniors remain active by assisting them in getting from place to place in comfort and safety. Our caregivers can assist with getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Without proper help, seniors can face many issues. These may include skin infections, unpleasant odors, and general hygiene problems. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living.
Maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet can impact well-being and vitality across the board. In fact, many of our seniors have prescribed meal plans they must stick to for health reasons. Our caregivers can step in and help in the kitchen. They will cook hot, wholesome means to meet nutritional and dietary needs. Clients are always welcome to work alongside their caregiver during meal prep. This time spent working together is an excellent opportunity for social interaction and conversation. We make an extra effort to turn meals into enjoyable social time by engaging our clients in conversation over food. Whether you’re looking for help adhering to a special diet or just want to improve nutrition, our caregivers can help.
