Most senior citizens and adults with special needs would prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. Unfortunately, challenges surrounding bathing and personal hygiene can make staying at home much more difficult. It is easy to remain independent when you can easily bathe yourself, wash your hair and keep yourself clean. But if you have trouble navigating the bathroom and getting in and out of the tub, staying independent is much more difficult.

Fortunately, there is plenty of help available for senior citizens and adults with special needs. If you have having trouble staying safe in the bathroom, working the shower or getting in and out of the tub, BrightStar Care of Franklin can help you stay safe and maintain your personal dignity.

Whether you need elderly care or special needs care, BrightStar Care of Franklin can give you the peace of mind you need while you are at work. You may not have time to watch your loved one 24 hours a day, but the personal care providers at BrightStar Care of Franklin can take the burden off your shoulders and help your loved one stay safe at home.

The experienced staff at BrightStar Care of Franklin can also help you identify the changes that can help you or your loved one maintain personal safety. The changes do not have to be extensive or costly. Something as simple as a shower seat can help an elderly person or special needs adults bathe in safety.
