Personal Care and Hygiene

Discreet Personal Care

Personal care involves a qualified care worker assisting with bathing, dressing, and grooming. A key element to being able to stay independent at home is the ability to maintain personal hygiene.

Having a trained care worker assist with personal care enables you to maintain dignity, rather than rely on assistance from family or friends. It also avoids the risk of potentially impacting the dynamics of personal relationships.
