Personal Care Services from Higgs Home Health
Personal care is just that, help with the parts of life we all do every day – wash, toilet, get dressed, take medication. As our mobility decreases, it can become difficult to do this alone.
Our caregivers offer just the level of help you need, at the level you’re comfortable with, in your own bathroom and home. With in-home personal care and hygiene assistance, you can live independently for longer, in the home you love.

Personal Care for You
All our personal care services are tailored to your specific requirements and requests. When we first meet, we talk through what your requirements are, and the level of personal care that will help you to live every day feeling fresh, energized and confident.
Getting in and out of bed (transferring)
For many seniors, every day starts with a major effort to get out of bed. Our team can help with gentle care in transferring from bed to wheelchair, or to standing with a frame or sticks. At the end of the day, our caregivers can help you undress and settle in bed comfortably for a good night’s sleep.
Bathing or showering
Your personal caregiver will be there to help you wash, bathe or shower, ready for the day ahead. You choose the level of help and support you need.
If you want to clean your teeth and pop in dentures, shave, or brush your hair yourself, that’s just fine! If you’d prefer to have some help, that’s also fine – your caregiver is right beside you!
If you have limited mobility, or find it difficult to stand for long periods, the process of getting dressed can be surprisingly tricky! Your caregiver can help by getting clothing from wardrobes and drawers, as well as the physical help you may require with stepping into skirts or fastening buttons.
Your caregiver can help with your medication requirements, from fetching assembling and providing water to take them with, to specific medication procedures such as blood sugar tests and insulin requirements for diabetics.
Toileting and continence care
Whatever your requirements, your caregiver is happy to help. We offer assistance in getting to, on and off your toilet, and making sure you are clean and fresh afterwards. We can also assist with continence care – just let us know your requirements.
Personal care for everyone
Our personal care services are not just for seniors and the frail elderly. We also help those with disabilities and long-term chronic conditions to start their day and finish their day with the personalized assistance they need. Our team of caregivers and Personal Support Workers (PSWs) ensure that everyone can lead their best life during the day.
