The cornerstone of LightWay’s services is often a customized Personal Care program designed to help our clients maintain hygiene while retaining a sense of dignity and independence. Our professionals are fully aware of the delicate times that may accompany the need for assistance in private daily matters, and they are committed to bringing kindness and discretion in delivering those services. As in all we do for our clients, we provide Personal Care just as we would want it done for our loved ones.

Personal Care Overview

Physical or mental limitations often take away the ability to perform normal tasks our clients likely have taken for granted their entire lives. That struggle can begin with morning toilet and bathroom visits, and extend throughout the day to bathing, dressing, eating, and maintaining a generally healthy home life. For a modest person, even asking for help in these situations can often be embarrassing.

We also realize that family caregivers sometimes find these private matters awkward. The constant and demanding attention to detail can become very challenging over time.

The help of a concerned professional, a non-family member, can make a significant improvement in the lives of both the client and the primary caregivers. Whether the situation involves disability, injury, or general aging issues, our Personal Care providers are experienced in giving assistance in a gentle, helpful and safe manner.

We will work closely with the family to design a program that truly fits the needs of both our care client and all others involved. Areas of assistance, how much help is needed, and how often it is provided are carefully planned and then closely monitored to assure safe and dependable results.

Program plans are both customized and flexible. They easily can be integrated with elements from LightWay’s other categories of services. Some of the Personal Care services our clients find most helpful are:

  • Bathing or showering assistance
  • Sponge baths or bed baths
  • Help with bedpans, commodes, or incontinent issues
  • General grooming
  • Teeth or denture cleaning
  • Electric razor shaving
  • Skin care
  • Choosing clothes, dressing and undressing
  • Medication reminders and monitoring
  • Repositioning to avoid pressure sores
