Benefits of Personal Care

At Gratitude In-home Care, we understand that sometimes the simple activities that are part of everyday living become more difficult or impossible to manage. This can be due to illness, disability, frailty or other concerns. Our friendly support workers can help with a range of personal care tasks in a considerate way with a focus on dignity and respect. This may include supervision or assistance with personal care activities such as:

  • bathing / showering and drying
  • oral care
  • dressing
  • grooming & shaving
  • changing of continence aids
  • assistance with toileting
  • repositioning bed-bound clients
  • assisting with range-of-movement activities

The assistance of a non-family member is often more beneficial when undertaking some personal care activities. It preserves both the dignity of family members and that of the individual.

Gratitude In-Home Care Support Workers are respectful and considerate of our clients’ dignity. The way they behave is always in a way to avoid any kind embarrassment or distress when supporting clients with their activities of daily living

Personal Care is commonly used all levels of Home Care Packages. If you do not yet have a Home Care Package and think you may be eligible for one, Contact Us, and we will guide you through the process. In the case in individual does not have a home care package, we can provide all the same services at the costs of the individual.

Some personal care activities may require extra help, especially those which involve physically moving individuals such as toileting, showering, grooming, shaving, turning, and transferring. All personal care services that an individual may need can be paid for with Government Home Care Packages and Gratitude In-Home Care can undertake all these activities. Since we do not subcontract or outsource, you will not get strangers on your doorstep.

It is also very important that the person who is providing the personal care activities does a thorough job and in the case of bathing, it is important to wash off any bacteria, dead skin, and perspiration which may otherwise cause issues.

Prior to providing services, we will visit the client’s home and conduct a free home safety assessment and decide whether safety measure need to be put in place, such as non-slip mates in the bathroom, handrails, and lights.
