Personal care covers a wide spectrum of needs. Our OMHA Caregivers are trained and experienced with the wide variety of personal care needs, whether it is assistance with bathing, using the washroom or incontinence issues.
As we age or because of physical limitations many of the basic things we take for granted can become more and more of a challenge. Helping alleviate some of these challenges can mean the difference between staying at home or a move to an assisted living facility. This personal care comes in many different forms, some requiring a great deal of sensitivity and discretion. MHA Health Caregivers are experienced, professional and caring.
In addition to personal care, MHA Caregivers are also willing to help with all the usual (and sometimes unusual) housekeeping duties. These may include laundry, changing bedding, dusting, disinfecting and tidying, and more. Reach out if you are interested in adding housekeeping services in conjunction with our other services. We are happy to tailor a program specifically for your loved one.
Our caregivers are experienced in many personal care tasks, including:
BATHING ; Showers or bathtubs can be a challenge to get in and out of particularly when conditions are slippery. In either situation assistance can be delivered in a way that ensures safety and maintains and allows loved ones to keep up with their daily routines
PERSONAL HYGIENE; Daily routines such as brushing teeth, washing, shaving, and grooming help loved ones to feel fresh and clean. One Touch Home Healthcare Caregivers can help with any or all of these routines.
PERSONAL APPEARANCE; More than just the regular daily routines, sometimes that extra attention to hair, makeup and other personal grooming elements can make someone feel a little extra special about themselves. This might be for an outing, special occasion or simply because it feels great to do so.
WASHROOM ASSISTANCE; Always with a high degree of sensitivity and respect of privacy, our One Touch Home Healthcare caregivers can aid in using of restroom facilities whether in the home or on outings.
INCONTINENCE CARE ; Our caregivers are experienced and understanding when it comes to sufferers of occasional or frequent incontinence. Maintaining dignity, staying comfortable and maintaining healthy, dry skin are key components of this kind of sensitive caregiving.
BEDTIME ROUTINES; Morning or evening assistance with getting in and out of bed, dressing, undressing or any other personal grooming assistance are all imperative to either starting the day off right or ensuring a great nights sleep.
TRANSFER ASSISTANCE ; As we age physical mobility can become more and more challenging. This is often most apparent when the use of a wheelchair is involved. Transfer assistance is something One Touch Home Healthcare Caregiver can assist with whether it is simply in and out of bed or a sitting position or whether it is more complicated transfers from the wheelchair to the bed and back as well as in and out of vehicles.
