Bathing, Restroom, Hygiene, And Grooming Assistance

Our caregivers assist with morning and evening routines. These routines typically include bathing, shower, tub baths, sponge baths, and bed baths. Naturally, restroom activities are part of the daily routine. We assist with toileting, incontinence issues, and accident monitoring as well. When it comes to grooming, dressing, and undressing, we assist. Personal care grooming services include haircare, skincare, shaving, oral care, and nail care.

Mobility Support

Mobility assistance is another aspect of our Lawrenceville personal care services. Our help includes transfers in and out of bed, from room to room, and in and out of wheelchairs. Also, we assist with walking and lead simple exercises to increase mobility and range of motion.

Personal Care Meal Prep and Nutritional Guidance

Whether you or a loved one live in Lawrenceville with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or high blood sugar, diet is important. Based on health needs, dietary restrictions, and goals, we provide meal plans that work. Meal preparation, cooking, and scheduling help clients eat a balanced diet. The personal care and companion services we provide include preparing breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Our caregivers and nurses follow the customized dietary meal plan for each client. iCherish also provides companionship during meals and feeding assistance. Because we care, we check food expiration dates, prepare grocery lists, clip coupons, and place grocery delivery orders for our clients.

Medication Personal Care Scheduling And Compliance

As far as taking medications as prescribed, our Lawrenceville clients need assistance. Aging and elderly adults commonly have at least five medications to take daily. That is why remembering what to take when is difficult for them. Not sticking to a medication schedule leads to medication mixups, like skipped doses, double dosing, and other mishaps. The problem is that with prescriptions, forgetfulness can have serious side effects. And in some cases, fatal consequences. The medication assistance our personal care services team provides in Lawrenceville include:

Temperature Screening

Accurate temperature screening is more important today than ever. iCherish Lawrenceville personal care professionals check client temperature each visit. Because deviation from normal body temperature may indicate the onset of infection, illness, or disease, daily monitoring is critical for the elderly. Also, older adults are more susceptible to temperature conditions like hypothermia or heat stroke. That is why our caregivers will seek nurse assistance or call 911 if they find temperature irregularities.

Respiration And Blood Pressure Checks

We check the respiration rate, pulse, and blood pressure each visit. Checking these vital signs on each visit helps identify changes that may point to a health crisis. Rest assured that when breathing or blood pressure indicates an urgent situation, iCherish caregivers will immediately contact a nurse or call 911.

Delicate Personal Care Professionals

In Lawrenceville and across the greater Atlanta area, personal care involves daily tasks like bathing, toileting, dressing, and undressing.
