Personal care services are some of the most important tasks our caregivers are prepared to perform and of course, will perform with the utmost confidentiality and sensitivity.
Personal hygiene assistance: One’s personal hygiene is not only important to their comfort, it is important to their health.
Bathing and showering: Bathing is essential to anyone’s sense of well-being. Brilliant Home Care caregivers can do whatever is needed to provide this essential home care related service. Whether it is preparing the room for a shower, assisting with the transfer into the shower, staying nearby in case of an emergency, helping with a partial bath, or providing a full bed bath, our caregivers are trained and sensitive to this need.
Hair care: Shampooing and styling your hair can make you feel and look so much better. Our caregivers can shampoo their client’s hair and also help dry and style it. Your caregiver can also transport you to your favorite stylist.
Assistance with dressing: Those that have had debilitating illnesses, surgeries, or permanent movement problems may have difficulty with the daily task of getting dressed. Our caregivers can help you or your loved one select appropriate clothing and get dressed while in or out of bed.
Restroom assistance: Assistance with using the bathroom is a highly personal and sensitive need that affects many seniors and/or disabled people. Brilliant Home Care caregivers provide this service with the utmost sensitivity and care. They are trained to assist with all toileting needs from minimal assistance to full assistance including incontinence care.
Routine transfer assistance: When someone is unable to get around on their own, our caregivers are able to help them move from the bed to a chair and vice versa. They are specially trained in proper body mechanics to avoid injury to their clients, as well as trained in using a Hoyer lift and a Gait belt.
Bed positioning: Placing a person into a proper position is essential to keep the body’s many systems functioning correctly. Caregivers are specially trained to watch for pressure sores and other issues bed-bound patients can usually face.
Light exercise assist: No matter your age, staying physically active is an important part of staying healthy. From taking walks to enjoying favorite hobbies, our caregivers can incorporate these exercises into their daily visits.
Medication reminders: While our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can be an alarm clock for you or your loved one to take medications at the right time.
Family caregiving relief (Also known as “respite care”): Our caregivers can provide a break for family members who are taking care of their loved ones. If you need to run errands, go shopping or get some much needed rest, our caregivers can give you that break. You can also hire our caregivers for an extended period of time, if for instance you are going on vacation or having a medical procedure.
