Daily personal hygiene. is one of those terms that means different things to different people, but they all agree equally on how important it is. Each aspect of hygiene listed below is important in different ways, and allows older people who care about their hygiene to live a better and longer life.

  • Hygiene means washing hands and preparing food safely.
  • Hygiene is an effective form of bathing.
  • Hygiene takes care of your teeth and gums.
  • Hygiene is also maintained, such as brushing hair, skin and nail care.

The most obvious and important good hygiene is the maintenance of physical health. As we age, our immune system is not as strong as it once was, and that means germs and viruses are more enemies than ever. Hand washing before handing over food and after visiting facilities, if it is not already a habit, should become it. Many drugs common in the older group cause the skin to become brittle, which facilitates germ invasion. Be careful in situations where germs may be abundant, such as hospitals or public transport and use disinfectants or antibacterial soap.

Problems with mobility or balance can make bathing a problem and help should be sought at this point. Bathing assistance is one of the best things for which home health care is rented. A good bath or shower is not a luxury, but a necessity. Proper cleaning removes bacteria that cause unpleasant odors and possible infections. With regular examination of the whole body, you are aware of any irregularities, and early detection of problems gives you the best chance to cure them. Finally, the invigorating sense of purity cannot be ignored. Don't let pride interfere with all the positives and seek help if you need it.
