Though all Homecare services are somehow personal, here we are referring to care that is really personal such as changing garments, toileting, applying lotion and cream, and everything that you want to do in private, in your personal space. There are times when we cannot maintain personal care, such as an injury or a disease that limits our ability to take care of ourselves.
An important thing regarding personal care is that as it is personal, we want someone for care that we are comfortable with. We want a familiar face, an emotional attachment and satisfaction that we are in safer hands. We need assurance that the person taking care of us or our beloved (Parents, children, spouse, and relatives) is expert, trustworthy, and emotionally intelligent. Personal care is delicate; it takes more than just being a care assistant. We know the in and out of personal care because the founder of this organisation is disabled (a service user).
