MAKE EVERYDAY HYGIENE MUCH EASIER
The Care Raiser function
Dressing, undressing, and changing of incontinence pads are routines normally carried out in bed - an inefficient method with high risk or strain injuries. The Care Raiser function was developed with these actions in mind and enables ergonomically sound procedures to be undertaken by one caregiver. The Care Raiser lifts the lower part of the resident's body and provides easy and discreet access for sensitive tasks, allowing care with dignity.
ShoweringAssisted showering generally requires two caregivers and the resident is placed on an ordinary chair in the shower. Less mobile residents cannot be showered on standard shower chairs, and are forced to be washed in bed. These methods are awkward, for both caregiver and resident. When using the Carendo the whole procedure - undressing, showering and dressing - can be managed in an efficient and ergonomically sound way be one caregiver, in the shower room. The resident’s dignity is preserved since the resident remains clothed when transported to and from the showering session.
Often carried out when the resident is placed in bed or on an ordinary chair in the shower, hair washing is an awkward procedure for both caregiver and resident. The Carendo allows the caregiver to adjust the height and recline angle to achieve the correct working posture for hair washing. The routine can be done in a comfortable way for the resident, fully supported by backrest and head pillow.
The traditional procedure calls for the resident’s leg to be lifted onto the lap of the caregiver, who has to assume a squatting position. Using the Carendo, all aspects of foot care, from washing to pedicure, can be performed at a comfortable working height, without bending and stretching.
Access to toileting with dignity is a basic part of good practice. In the Carendo the resident can be placed over a standard toilet, which means the resident does not have to use a bedpan. For incontinent residents the Care Raiser function gives possibility for smooth change of incontinence pads. Through Care Raiser function the caregiver can adjust the resident's clothes easily and discreetly, allowing the routine to be performed without intrusive handling.
