Personal Care and Hygiene

The broad term 'Personal Care' is used when referring to the support a person needs whether at home or within a healthcare setting. The provision of personal care can involve all aspects of daily living and include personal hygiene, toileting, dressing and maintaining personal appearance but some people who need such assistance may find different aspects of their care/support needs difficult to ‘embrace’, as it can lead to embarrassment and/or frustration.

Planning personal care (or organising care for those who need it) is therefore important and should not only be aligned to the necessary standards (such as those set out in the guidelines by the National Institute for Health Care Excellence or the Care Quality Commission) but also meet the requirements/expectations of each organisation responsible for providing the care/support.

As a result, this course aims to highlight key information associated with the following topics:

  • Providing Personal Care
  • Person Centred Approaches
  • Dignity and Independence
  • Oral Healthcare

Other elements of personal care will also be considered including:

  • Continence
  • Mobility
  • Eating and Drinking
  • Sleep Issues and Disturbances
  • Washing, Showering and Bathing
  • Skin Care
  • Foot Care

By completing this course, those providing personal care will better understand important information about providing such care/support to others.
