Personal care involves physical contact between you and your care worker which can include activities such as washing, dressing, general hygiene assistance, or just being there to offer reassurance and guidance if required.
At Empowering U, we understand that requiring help with your personal care may not always be easy to accept. We appreciate that it can be frustrating and uncomfortable and that is why all of our staff are trained to recognise that each person has the right to have their dignity respected. As each individual possesses unique needs, varying preferences, different cultures and backgrounds, all must be taken into consideration.
We can provide assistance with the following:
- Bathing, Showering
- Washing & Drying Hair
- Bed baths
- Continence & Incontinence Care
- Toilet and Bathroom assistance
- Oral Hygiene
- Shaving, Hair & Beard Care
A detailed and individual support plan is produced for each client, which ensures that staff know exactly how you like your care to be given. Your personal routine and preferences are always given priority. Additionally, all our staff receive full Moving & Handling and Safety Training. If you do have any specific health or mobility aids, our staff will be given the necessary training delivered by suitable professionals on how to best manage this while supporting your personal care routine.
