Bathroom & WC

Washing, bathing and showering mean much more than hygiene.
The care of the body contributes decisively to the emotional well-being.

This also applies to people in need of care who spend a lot of time sitting and lying down. The more actively they can participate in personal hygiene, the higher their self-esteem. Everyday aids such as an inflatable hair wash basin support caring relatives in providing gentle, loving care.

From childhood to old age, personal hygiene is one of the most personal and intimate areas of a person's life. When physical or even mental limitations make outside help necessary, it is a challenge for everyone involved.

Shame or even discomfort play a role when parents are dependent on their children for care and rehearsed roles are reversed. Anything that contributes to the greatest possible independence has a positive effect on the attitude to life of persons in need of care.

Practical care: This is how personal hygiene works well and safely

If possible, support the person in need of care in washing their own body in the bathroom. Valuable everyday aids are, for example, an anti-slip shower mat, hand and grab handles for standing up and sitting down, or a bath and shower chair. A seat or reclining lift that also enables a full bath offers special comfort. In everyday care, a shower is often less complicated and more pleasant.

After washing, bathing or showering, make sure you also dry the skin carefully where it wrinkles. Then you can rub the skin with a protective cream so that it does not become dry and cracked. Even physically handicapped people can do this independently, for example with a lotion applicator. Once the cream has been absorbed, help the person in need of care into fresh clothes.

Attention

Always undress only the parts of the body that are to be washed. Use soft flannels and a mild cleansing product with a pH value below 6 that is gentle on the skin.

Good preparation is (almost) everything

Personal care in particular requires a great deal of trust. The key is communication: take a few minutes to tell the person in need of care what you are going to do before washing. This makes them feel involved.

Prepare everything you need for yourself: Flannel, spare cloth, brush, shower gel or soap, nail scissors, skin cream, towels, fresh clothes, disposable gloves.

Pay attention to the room climate and temperature. Persons in need of care often have an increased need for warmth.

If necessary, allow a trip to the toilet before personal hygiene.

Remove rings and similar items from your hands and also put the hearing aid and/or glasses of the person in need of care aside.

Move safely in the bathroom

The bath handle, shower stool and handgrip are important aids that should be present in every bathroom. The Bath handle provides extra comfort and safety in the bath when getting in and out. There are also different types of Shower stools, from simple to shower chairs that allow 360 degree rotation. The Handle provides support when sitting down or standing up on the toilet as well as in the bath and also gives additional support when climbing stairs. These aids are especially important for older people or people with mobility problems and help them to move safely and independently in the bathroom.

Intimate care:
