What is included in your Personal Care Services?

We deliver a wide range of personal elderly support services – from bathing and hygiene, to mobility assistance to toileting and incontinence. Read our brief guide on the types of personal care support services we provide to your loved ones in the comfort of their own home.

Bathing, Dressing and Hygiene

Prestige Nursing + Care helps clients 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.

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, Prestige Nursing + Care helps to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and need for toileting assistance.

Transferring and Positioning

At Prestige Nursing + Care, our care assistants are trained to move and place clients 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 eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination of waste.

Mobility Assistance

Prestige Nursing + Care care 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.

Feeding and Special Diet

For a number of reasons, adults may need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Prestige Nursing + Care understands this and makes the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time. You can read our good nutrition for the elderly guide.

In addition, Prestige Nursing + Care helps make certain that elders and other clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. And in general, Prestige Nursing + Care enables clients to eat a well balanced diet that provides the energy needed for active living and nutrients for disease prevention, healing and healthful living.
