Haircare for seniors may seem unnecessary, given that they may have many other health issues that are present and should be prioritized, but caring for their hair can help with any individual’s dignity and self-esteem, especially for seniors under Hospice Service.
As a caregiver working in an Assisted Living Facility in Little Elm, Texas, it is only natural for you to want the best for your patient. This is why we at EldoradoWest Senior Living have decided to compose a list of some tips and tricks on how you can brighten up their mood through haircare! Take a look:
- Use shampoos with natural oils, such as argan and coconut to help moisturize their hair.
- Use a boar bristle brush. It will help reduce the breakage of seniors’ hair.
- Use conditioners that have protein, or olive oil and shea butter.
- If you have bed-bound patients, you can try using no-rinse shampoos.
Because we run a Residential Care Home in Texas, the daily struggle for most seniors to maintain their dignity due to their condition and illnesses is a common sight. We would like to help our beloved patients be more comfortable with how they are now through some extra pampering.
