Personal Care Services

Supporting your independence with dignity and compassion

Daily living, personal care and hygiene can become a challenge when living with an illness, injury or recovering from an operation. Knowing when to get help for our loved ones isn’t always easy, especially with personal care. Everyone wants to care for their personal appearance, but asking for help with it can be tricky. Similarly, knowing how to take care of someone in the most personal ways, like changing catheters and maintaining stoma bags, isn’t something we’re all necessarily familiar with. 

Home Instead Cuffley Cheshunt & Harlow is here to help. We provide care for you or your loved one in the comfort and the familiar surroundings of your own home.

What is personal care?

Personal care is the assistance and supervision of daily activities and personal hygiene.

Personal care for the elderly consists of assistance and supervision with daily living, personal hygiene and toileting, dressing and grooming. Personal care may include support with bathing and showering, including bed baths and lotion and ointment application as needed. It affords you or a loved one the chance to receive discreet and considerate one-on-one care from a fully-trained Care Professional. 

Personal care isn’t just a service for elderly people. Good personal care can drastically improve the quality of life for someone recovering from an injury or surgery or suffering from an illness or disability.

It takes a lot to find quality personal care services that you can trust, as everyone has their own preferences and ways of living their life.

The benefits of personal care services at home include:

  • Individualised and professional personal care services

  • True companionship and understanding of the needs at hand

Our strength lies in our Care Professionals as we strive to be true companions to our clients. We do this by making our services have an authentic ‘personal’ touch by addressing the needs of the individual. Unlike many residential care homes and other home care services, our approach is companionship based and person-centred. This means we place a greater emphasis on matching our clients and Care Professionals. Our Care Professionals will not compromise when it comes to giving clients the type of care, valuable companionship and the support they require. Our clients’ joy and satisfaction is personal to us.

  • Help support your close family members.

While it might seem like an easy decision to let a family member look after your personal care needs, the duties of personal care may become too much. Our team of Care Professionals treat everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve. They will learn to understand precisely how you like something to be done, where, when and how. This allows you to get back to spending quality time with your loved ones.

Personal Care for people with dementia

When someone is diagnosed with dementia, it can be challenging to know what to do and where to go. The many stages of dementia make it challenging to know what types of care are needed and when.

It’s common to associate Alzheimer’s disease and dementia with elderly people, but the condition can also affect younger people too. Research shows that 5% of people with Alzheimer’s disease will experience it early, before age 65.

Home Instead Cuffley Cheshunt & Harlow can provide a high level of personal care to people with dementia. People who have advanced dementia may not be able to care for themselves like they used to. Our Live-in care service is a real alternative to residential care. This is where our Care Professionals live with our clients and are on hand to support a clients daily needs as well as provide companionship, all while keeping them safe in the familiarity of home. 

At Home Instead Cuffley Cheshunt & Harlow, our Care Professionals understand precisely what personal hygiene means to a person. They know that it’s not only about cleanliness and hygiene; it also includes daily tasks like dressing in a way that makes you feel confident about your appearance – it’s an outward expression of who you are on the inside!

Hygiene can also come down to domestic tasks like wiping down surfaces, making sure dishes are clean, and looking after the small things that may get forgotten. It’s a quality of care that is necessary to keep close to an independent life.
