At Thornhill we understand that this is often the most difficult kind of help to accept. That’s why we approach it with the utmost respect for our clients’ dignity, independence and personal pride.
How can we help?
Personal Care is support that involves physical contact between carer and client, and it can include washing, dressing, grooming, toileting and continence care.
Our Care - givers pride themselves on being discreet and professional. Thanks to our detailed care plans, they know exactly how their clients like to maintain their personal routines and will support them to whatever level is necessary, from full support to waiting outside the room in case they are needed.
As limitations evolve, basic hygiene can become a challenge. We can support you or your loved one by helping with:
- Bathing and showering assistance
- Bed baths
- Personal grooming
- Shaving with an electric razor
- Oral hygiene
- Toilet assistance and incontinence care
Our Care-givers are all trained in the latest safe techniques to physically assist throughout personal care and will help their clients to maintain their modesty at a level they feel comfortable with.
