Good personal hygiene is important for all of us, including the loved ones we are caring for. As a caregiver, one of the best ways to help protect your loved one from diseases such as colds and flu is washing your hands with soap and water. Maintaining good personal hygiene will also help prevent you from spreading diseases to the loved one you are caring for.
What is Personal Hygiene?
Personal hygiene is how you care for your body. Cleaning your body every day is a way to practice good hygiene, and also washing your hands after using the bathroom to keep conditions around your loved one sanitary. Daily cleansing isn’t always an option, but Pharma-C-Wipes Water-Activated Bathing Cloths are an excellent way to keep you or your loved one clean when traditional bathing just isn’t an option. Simply wet Bathing Cloth with hot or cold water, massage until activated, and cleanse body as needed. There’s no rinsing required, and they’re much more convenient than transporting your loved one to and from the bathtub.
Here are a few tips to help keep you and your loved ones clean: When you sneeze, particles and germs spew out into the air and hang around. People can get sick from air born germs. Keep the environment clean by covering your mouth and nose with a tissue (or your sleeve) when sneezing or coughing.
Do you have pets? Pets lower blood pressure and have been said to aid in healing when people are sick. Having them around aging loved ones can have positive attributes. Just remember to wash your hands after handling pets and other animals.
Germs hide out in many places, especially on the face. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you do happen to touch your face, wash your hands.
Keep the house clean, especially the kitchen and bathroom. Disinfect doorknobs often and surfaces such as furniture, desks and chairs. Along with this, clean and disinfect objects you use often such as mobile phones, keys and wallets.
Change bedding often. Fresh sheets feel good and protect against germs.
Fresh air is good for you and the loved one you are caring for. Not only does fresh air feel good and smell good, but it’s also good to get stale musty air out of the house. Open windows and change air conditioning filters to increase the amount of fresh air around you.
