Home Personal Hygiene – Bath

Home personal hygiene – bath for elderly individuals and bedridden patients requires experience, specialization, and dedication. It is very important to be close to the person receiving our care, and let’s not forget that many times, this person does not easily accept these services, fearing a loss of independence.

The goal of an elderly or bedridden patient’s hygiene is focused on skin cleansing, aiming at:

  • The well-being of the individual.
  • Improving their psychological well-being.
  • Enhancing the circulatory system.
  • Relaxing and relieving the patient.

It allows us to observe any skin damage or bedsores. Care and cleanliness of the elderly’s skin require special attention, using soaps with a neutral pH due to its fragility and dryness.

The patient’s bath should include body washing, hair washing, and facial care, especially focusing on the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. Significant attention must be given to the hygiene of the genital and rectal areas to avoid infections. We should also not forget shaving for men and nail trimming and care for both hands and feet.

Particular care should be given to patients with nasogastric tubes of the Levin type, permanent catheters, intubated patients, and patients undergoing chemotherapy. Also, to patients receiving oxygen therapy and those with mobility problems.
