How does personal care help seniors?

The inability to bathe, toilet, groom, and dress safely is a difficult challenge many seniors eventually have to face. Having personal care at home allows an older adult to age with dignity while staying as safe and comfortable as possible. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), falls are the leading cause of injury and injury death in adults over the age of 65. Even though falls are common in this age group, they are preventable and do not have to be a normal part of aging. 

One way to prevent falls is to have a caregiver that helps you or your loved one move around the house and complete daily tasks that might lead to a fall if attempted alone. Personal care lets a senior and their family members relax knowing someone is always there to help out and make sure everything is okay.
