Many seniors wish to remain living independently as they age. However, as they age, they may find it difficult to perform daily activities involving personal care. Aging, combined with certain health conditions, can make it difficult for seniors to take care of themselves.
Barriers to Personal Care
Personal care involves simple daily tasks, such as bathing, brushing teeth, changing into fresh clothes, and more. Some seniors may be at an increased risk of falls when performing these activities, due to conditions that cause a lack of balance or coordination. Injuries may also make performing these activities difficult.
Often, seniors find it hard to admit that they may need help with personal care. They may feel a loss of independence or dignity. Others may deny that they have issues maintaining their hygiene. Some seniors feel uncomfortable with a family member helping them dress or bathe.

Using an in-home care agency such as Simply Compassion can help your senior loved one with basic personal care. We offer the following personal care services:

Personal Hygiene for Good Health
Seniors must continue to maintain good hygiene, with or without assistance. Personal care matters to keep support positive good physical health, as well as mental health. Hygiene is important for seniors to:
Feel good about themselves. Poor hygiene can have negative effects on mental health.
- Maintaining a healthy routine
- Managing body odor
- Preventing dental concerns through good oral hygiene
- Feel good about their appearance
- Detect health concerns or skin conditions
Look Good, Feel Good
Your loved one may also be receiving in-home medical care from another agency. Medical care does not include help with daily hygiene tasks.
At Simply Compassion, we provide non-medical personal care services to help seniors look and feel their best. For seniors who do not want help from a family member, we offer a solution that meets everyone’s needs.
We believe in a “look good, feel good” approach. This means we help seniors dress, bathe, and get ready with assistance.
We focus on allowing the seniors we serve to maintain as much independence as possible, only guiding and assisting them when needed. We choose to focus on and highlight what seniors can do, rather than what they cannot do.
If a senior in your life needs help with personal care, reach out to Simply Compassion today.
