Does your loved one seem to be struggling to care for themselves lately? Have you been caring for your loved one, but you need a little more help? Are you recovering from an injury and need some help around your house? Personal care at home may be the perfect option.

  • What is personal care at home? 
  • Why is personal care important? 
  • What are the benefits of personal care at home? 
  • How can you tell if your loved one needs personal care? 

Here are the answers to these questions and other things you need to know about personal care at home.

Why Is Personal Care Important?

Personal care is critical for a person’s physical and mental health. Failing to eat properly can lead to weight loss and illness. Being unable to shower or get dressed can be damaging to your mental health. When a person can no longer perform their own personal care tasks, they may need a care professional to help them.

While many people associate personal care with inpatient facilities, you or your loved one can get personal care at home, which tends to be better physically, and emotionally, than moving to a nursing home facility.

“Good personal hygiene involves keeping all parts of the external body clean and healthy. It is important for maintaining both physical and mental health. In people with poor personal hygiene, the body provides an ideal environment for germs to grow, leaving it vulnerable to infection. On a social level, people may avoid a person with poor personal hygiene, which may result in isolation and loneliness.”

What Is Personal Care at Home?

Also known as non-medical care, non-skilled care, or companion care, personal care at home helps people age in place with assistance rather than moving into an assisted living facility or nursing home. Personal care can help with tasks such as activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and transferring from a bed to a chair.

What Types of Services Are Included With Personal Care at Home?

Personal care services may vary a bit from place to place, but they will generally include:

  • Transfers between a bed, wheelchair, or other seats
  • Help with bathing, eating, personal hygiene, and hair care
  • Assistance with toileting, urinals, or bedpans
  • Bladder or bowel incontinence care
  • Positioning the patient in their wheelchair, bed, or other chairs
  • Encouraging the patient to perform normal body movements and follow prescribed physical therapy or exercise
  • Fall prevention and mobility assistance
  • Medication reminders
  • Bed bound care

What Are the Benefits of Personal Care at Home?

Personal care at home has many benefits, including:

  • Ability to age in place. Personal care is often enough to let an elderly person live comfortably and safely in their own home for years without needing to go to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
  • Enhanced quality of life. When seniors can stay in their own home and maintain a degree of independence while still getting the care they need, they can have a significantly better quality of life.
  • Personalized needs. Your loved one gets exactly the care they need. They aren’t left alone for long stretches if they need a lot of help, or they aren’t bothered by constant attention when they only need a little help here and there.
  • Lower cost. Most of the time, personal care at home costs less than an assisted living facility or a nursing home – sometimes significantly less, especially if your loved one only needs assistance a few hours a day.

How to Tell When Your Loved One May Need Personal Care

Some red flags that may indicate your loved one needs personal care at home include [3]:

  • Changes in personal hygiene, appearance, or weight gain or loss may indicate that your loved one is struggling to care for themselves as well as they once did..
  • Falls or falling hazards inside the home pose a serious threat to safety. Personal care can help your loved one get around their home more safely.
  • Isolation can lead to loneliness, depression, more health problems, and a decreased quality of life.

What to Look for When Hiring a Home Care Provider

Are you concerned about trying to find the right home care provider? Here are some things to consider as you embark on your search for the perfect provider [4]:

  • Is the agency licensed by the state?
  • What type of employee screening does the agency do?
  • Are caregivers accredited, insured, and licensed?
  • Does the agency’s staff seem helpful and friendly?
  • Will you receive a written care plan?
  • How are problems resolved?
  • What policies are in place for emergencies?

What Is the Difference Between Personal Care and Companion Care?

Companion care or homemaker services, while extremely important, do not provide the same assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) that personal care provides. Companion care or homemaker services provide services such as light housekeeping, cooking, and talking to or playing games with the patient, while personal care provides more hands-on help.

However, don’t discount the importance of companionship. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [2]:

“Loneliness and social isolation in older adults are serious public health risks affecting a significant number of people in the United States and putting them at risk for dementia and other serious medical conditions...Social isolation significantly increased a person's risk of premature death from all causes, a risk that may rival those of smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity.”
