Services included in Personal Care

  1. Bathing, Dressing and Hygiene : Trahas Bedside Care helps a patient look and feel their best. These services enhance clients’ mental as well as physical well-being, helping them feel positive about their appearance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin, but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation and stimulate circulation.
  2. Toileting and Incontinence Care : We compassionately and sensitively care for elders and other adults, helping them maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with the activities of daily living. Through this caring approach, Trahas Bedside Care helps to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
  3. Transferring and Positioning : At Trahas Bedside Care, our care assistants are trained to move and place patients in correct posture position to promote health and safety and proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs /wheel chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination of waste.
  4. Mobility Assistance : Trahas Bedside Care nursing assistants support clients as needed with mobility to help them maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. Being able to get out and about offers both physical and mental health benefits to elders. Physical health benefits of activity include increased stamina and energy, a strengthened heart, lower blood pressure and improved digestion and sleep. In addition, activity improves mood, releases stress and increases mental alertness.
  5. Feeding and Special Diet : For a number of reasons, adults may need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Trahas Bedside Care understands this and makes the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time.
