The care and aid to the elderly and the disabled to ensure their correct personal hygiene is a problem which falls on their families or the social workers who assist them. For this reason often this aspect of life is neglected, denying the dignity and respect of those persons who already find themselves in discomfort.
If the elderly and disabled have difficulty in routine movement, it becomes tiring to conclude the daily routine of hygiene if only for the real impossibility of relatives and social workers to mobilize their assisted.
In the majority of cases the difficulties of movement for the elderly or the disabled are a real setback to carrying out the task of personal hygiene; unless useful strategies are provided to arrive at the independence of the person assisted and for his physical and mental well being. For example:
• Personal considerations regarding the real necessities for the well being and hygiene of the elderly and the disabled;
• The use of models of assistance to the elderly and disabled in accordance with each singular case;
• A specific knowledge of sanitary aids and instruments of support which favour the safety and the independence of the disabled and the elderly.
If the persons who assist and care fore the elderly and the disabled do not have the qualifications to do so and do not have at their disposal aids and instruments to support them, it can become very difficult indeed to ensure that persons with mobile disabilities follow a correct personal hygiene routine.
It can infact , be very difficult just to transport the elderly or disabled person to the bathroom and to help them enter into the bathtub risking that the person assisted slips while trying to climb into the bathtub, fall and only worsening an already critical situation.
It is also, not at all easy for social workers or the family to physically bear the weight of an elderly or disabled person afflicted with motory handicaps and, at the same time, help them to wash themselves.
It must be said that one should also consider the important aspect when one deals with personal hygiene, many elderly and disabled people do not want to be assisted in order to feel free and independent, not with standing the fact that they have serious difficulties and cannot complete their personal hygiene alone.
