The older we get, the more difficult it is to perform the daily tasks of living. If your loved one’s quality of life is diminishing because they can’t keep up with daily hygiene, grooming, and other routine tasks, they may need personal care.
Personal care focuses on the fundamental tasks a person must accomplish to live independently at home, also known as activities of daily living. Personal care services include assistance with dressing, grooming, eating, drinking, bathing, toileting, walking, mobility, and transferring.
You can receive personal care assistance that meets your specific preferences—and as your needs change, so will the care provided. At LivHOME, you never have to commit to a long-term contract, and we will continually review our services to ensure they’re meeting your family’s needs and expectations.
By hiring a professional caregiving agency such as LivHOME, you’ll be helping your loved one maintain their independence in familiar surroundings. And once they start feeling in control, your loved one will be much more likely to enjoy connecting with the people and activities that bring meaning to their lives.

Bathtubs and showers are notorious for being slippery. When hiring personal care services, you won’t have to worry about your loved one taking a bath or shower.
Everyone wants to look their best! A personal care provider, such as LivHOME, can assist your loved one with hair care, shaving, and other daily grooming tasks.
Getting Dressed and Undressed
Does your loved one have difficulty getting dressed and undressed? Do they have trouble fastening buttons and tying shoes? Personal care services can be customized to meet your loved one’s personal routine and preferences.
Personal hygiene is particularly important for someone who has trouble controlling their urine or bowels. A personal care aide or attendant will help your loved one manage incontinence and give them the respect they deserve.
To live independently, your loved one needs to get to the bathroom safely, use the toilet and adequately clean themselves. A personal care assistant can provide the necessary help to make sure your loved one is comfortable and safe concerning all toileting activities.
Walking and Transfer Support
Leading an independent life means being able to get from place to place with ease. A personal care assistant can help your loved one get in and out of bed, a wheelchair, the car, or wherever they need to go.
Morning routines around bathing, toileting, and grooming help start the day off right. Likewise, evening routines help set the stage for a restful night.
With comprehensive senior care services from LivHOME, you can rest assured that your loved one is getting the help they need to stay safe, healthy, and happy.
