Professional and loving elder care from Comfort Keepers of Cape Girardeau, MO
We offer an entire range of compassionate home care solutions for local seniors. Our elder care programs range from companionship care to general support and more personal services.

The older we get, the less able we become. This is just one of the inevitable signs of ageing. But being less able doesn't mean seniors have to move out of their homes or lose their independence. This used to be the norm, but it's not anymore.

Bathing And Personal Grooming
Keeping clean, fresh, and tidy, is essential for seniors. Personal hygiene is something that lifts spirits as well as maintains healthy skin. Embarrassment and even anger are too emotions that can occur when seniors lose their ability to bathe themselves. Our trained Comfort Keepers know how to approach these situations with great care and total respect for the client. It's never too long before our care recipients become at ease and loose those early emotional reactions.
Bathing is also important for the following reasons:
- Promotes overall good health
- Helps the senior to relax
- Proper bathing increases blood circulation
- A great way to move the limbs of someone who's otherwise bed-bound
Comfort Keepers of Cape Girardeau know how to safely prepare and bathe clients. We have the skills and all the necessary tools to make the experience safer, easier, and more enjoyable.
