Finding Dignity Through Hygiene: Orion Homes

BY: CityScoop Staff Writer, Orion Homes

At Orion Homes’ behavioral health residences, personal hygiene is more than just getting clean – empowering residents and showing compassion. Our caring staff provides discrete, tailored hygiene assistance to meet each resident’s needs with dignity.

Tailoring Care to Individual Challenges

We understand each resident faces unique obstacles surrounding personal hygiene, so take time upfront to assess capabilities, mobility limitations, sensitivities, and physical or mental health barriers. This allows us to design customized self-care plans – equipping staff to assist appropriately while respecting dignity. We may provide additional grab bars, shower chairs, or adaptive devices to ease hygiene.

Our residences feature private or shared bathrooms with walk-in showers and grab bars for accessibility. Staff can provide as little or as much help as needed with bathing, grooming, oral care, dressing, and more. We recognize hygiene as an essential form of self-care, so our assistance goes beyond physical tasks – we engage with residents to understand preferences, respect boundaries, and make them feel comfortable.

Teaching Healthy Hygiene Habits

Our goal is for residents to eventually manage self-care independently whenever possible. So our staff use assistance opportunities to educate on proper hygiene techniques as part of recovery. For example, we demonstrate proper dental care, hair washing motions, skin cleansing order, nail trimming, and products optimal for specific conditions. We aim for hygiene time to build confidence alongside good habits.

For some, depression or anxiety prevents adequate self-care; for others, mobility challenges simply make daily grooming difficult. We meet residents where they are, building confidence and skills over time. We aim for everyone to regain their sense of self-worth – because personal hygiene plays a significant role.

Ongoing Support and Reassessment

As health improves with treatment, we continually reevaluate residents’ evolving care needs and desires. What once felt humiliating or laborious may become more comfortable over time. As skills progress, we modify hands-on support while offering praise and problem-solving guidance as residents take ownership of hygiene routines. It’s about collaboration – assisting when beneficial, empowering independence when reasonable. Our flexibility facilitates the self-care journey.

Beyond scheduled bathing and grooming times, staff remain available to assist as issues arise. We keep spare, clean clothes on hand for accidents, provide incontinence products if needed, trim hair and nails upon request, apply lotions for dry skin conditions, help change wound dressings, and more. Residents set the pace, and staff lends a hand discretely.

Additionally, our bathrooms feature raised toilets and ADA-compliant sinks, while non-slip surfaces help prevent falls. We go the extra mile to create a safe, judgment-free space for hygiene. Staff can assist with transitional details like adjusting water temperature, lathering soap, reaching tough spots, drying off, applying deodorant, brushing teeth, and getting dressed.

For those able to be more independent, we cheer them on while ensuring safety and providing guidance if they are struggling with certain tasks. Our goal is to improve quality of life through uplifting, therapeutic hygiene care. We want to equip residents to care for themselves whenever possible, intervening only when requested.

Committing to Long-Term Care

Self-care is personal; it should feel empowering rather than embarrassing. At Orion Homes, we honor this by encouraging residents to communicate their needs candidly so we can respond appropriately. By pairing compassion with practical help, hygiene becomes an opportunity to build confidence and reclaim dignity. Our assistance aims to be a stepping stone toward greater independence.
