Bathing and grooming can be difficult for those who have physical challenges. Regular bathing and grooming are crucially important, not only for health reasons, but also for psychological ones as well.
Our Care Professionals can assist with all aspects of personal grooming and hygiene and will make bathing a safer and more enjoyable experience. Feeling clean and refreshed and looking one's best can go a long way to lifting one's spirits and making one feel better.

Incontinence Care /Toileting
Toileting issues and incontinence problems are very common among seniors. When these problems are not handled properly, a person's confidence and sense of pride are negatively impacted and they tend to withdraw and become unhappy.
Our experienced Care Professionals can change all of that, because they are accustomed to working with clients who are having toileting and/or incontinence problems. Our providers know how to professionally handle these issues and eliminate the associated embarrassment and diminished self-esteem. Serious health issues may arise if personal hygiene is neglected. At Home Care of Myrtle Beach we make certain our caregivers know how important hygiene is and they are trained how to deal with these issues professionally.
We will assist your loved ones with any mobility challenges they are having so they can stay active and engaged. With one of our experienced Care Professionals, seniors can look forward to short walks or an afternoon out with friends. When a senior is active during the day, they sleep better at night, find it easier to maintain or lose weight, have increased energy, and simply feel better. If exercise is prescribed, we will remind and encourage our clients to stay on their program.
Not taking medications as prescribed is a serious problem, especially among seniors. Accidental prescription drug overdoses can easily occur, and when they do, the consequences can be devastating. Although our Care Professionals are not permitted to administer medicines, they can ensure clients stay on schedule by reminding them when it is time for their next dose.
Over time our Care Professionals form healthy relationships with our clients. They have meals together, organize photo albums, read books, play cards etc. Our caregivers can even arrange for Skype calls to family members around the world.
Home Care of Myrtle Beach also sponsors holiday celebrations for our clients and a guest. All of our clients will have a place to enjoy Christmas and Thanksgiving. We even offer doggie visits for those who like animals. Troy, our mascot, is quite a character and loves to visit.
Good nutrition is important at any age, but it is extremely important for seniors, especially those with health challenges. Many seniors find that it is too difficult to prepare nutritious meals for themselves and, due to that, tend to eat prepackaged meals loaded with sodium and/or sugar. Poor eating habits can exacerbate existing health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes. A poor diet may even cause new health conditions due to a lack of essential nutrients. Our caregivers are able to prepare simple delicious meals with an emphasis on nutrition. They will even make a trip to the grocery store to pickup all the needed ingredients to prepare meals.
We always encourage our clients to help in the kitchen whenever possible, so they can participate in the chit-chat that often takes place while a meal is being prepared. Some of our clients will even share closely guarded family recipes as a result of the bond formed with our Care Professionals. As a senior’s diet improves, oftentimes his or her entire outlook on life does too. Of all the services we provide, we believe this may be the one with the most impact
When a house is neat and tidy, seniors are far less likely to fall and injure themselves. Our Care Professionals will vacuum, dust, wash dishes, clean bathrooms, tidy- up kitchens, mop floors, and even wash interior windows as long as they are within arm’s reach. A clean and safe environment by itself can promote a sense of well-being.
From start to finish, we complete the laundry process for our clients, including washing, drying, folding, and putting away clothing. Our Care Professionals can even reorganize closets and store away out-of- season clothing. Our caregivers can do laundry on-site if there are proper facilities or it can be done off-site if needed.
Our Care Professionals can handle any errands needed, from trips to the market to picking up dry cleaning. We help our clients prepare grocery lists and even clip coupons. We encourage our clients to come along when it’s time to run an errand, especially when it’s a trip to the market. There they will have a chance to see what’s new, find a tasty snack, or pick up something special for a friend or family member. A few hours away from home, especially when the weather is nice, can be a welcome change of pace for many. We strive to keep our clients as active and engaged as we possibly can.
