How to encourage seniors or ill relatives to perform self-care: tips for caregivers
October 3, 2018 Burd Home Health
The term 'self-care' refers to treatment performed by a patient to ameliorate a perceived symptom. Such treatment is most effective when applied to less serious symptoms1. More pressing issues tend to be less amenable to self-care, and are most often presented to and addressed by professionals.
Tips for Wearing Appropriate Clothing and Footwear
Tip of the Quarter
These pointers are for the caregiver only. Please ensure that you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear when caring for your loved ones.
Step 1: Wear clothing that allows you to move freely and is not restricting.
Step 2: Wear Closed toed shoes that have good traction and are easy to move in.
Wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear will allow you to make sure you are able to take the best care of your family members. This will help prevent injuries to yourself and your loved one.
