Personal care refers to providing attention (medical or physical) to yourself or others that need assistance, such as children, the elderly, and the disabled, and includes activities such as cleaning, washing, and bathing. The main aim is to teach beneficial personal habits for the maintenance of the body and to meet household maintenance needs like dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming. Professionals such as doctors and nurses are those who most often provide personal care while household care is done by yourself or supplied by domestic workers.

What is self care?

Self care consists of any activity that we do in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Self-care activities improve mood, reduce anxiety, and help create a good relationship with yourself. Examples of self-care include getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, creating a ‘no’ list, using relaxation exercises, and spending enough time with loved ones.

What is a personal care assistant?

Personal care assistants work in private home and care facilities to help their clients with everyday tasks like bathing, grooming, and using the toilet. They also assist in dressing, cooking, and house cleaning. Most personal care assistants work for private clients, home health providers, or agencies that offer their services to seniors or disabled people.

How often should you shower?

Dermatologists recommend showering every other day or 2 to 3 times a week since showering every day could be bad for your skin. Many people shower at least once a day or more often, but it is not necessary and could dry out your skin. Each individual’s skin is different and changes from season to season.
