Personal Care & Hygiene
From head to toe, your loved one wants to feel and look their very best. Our at home personal care and hygiene services can assist with a range of care and grooming depending on your need to keep each client clean, comfortable, and looking their best. We advocate that each client complete and participate in as much of their personal care so they remain as independent as possible, but when sensitive and potentially hazardous tasks become challenging, often times a little help from a personal care assistant can prevent injury. As a non-medical alternative to in home health care agencies, Mary’s Loving Care offers home care services to assist older adults with personal care.
