Yes, that’s right, as a home caregiver for the elderly you will find yourself scouring the discounters looking for aprons for mom or dad. Aprons are a kind of non-gender item that both women and men agree to wear almost as a badge of honor. That’s why you’ll become an apron shopping freak to keep mom or dad stylish and preserve her dignity, as well as help them maintain their independence. It is important that your elder continue to do as much for himself as possible for as long as possible. An older person who can still function to feed himself retains his dignity and will go out of his way to use good table manners.
The quilted apron solves many problems for the elderly. His clothes are covered, even above his knees, so if food falls to the front, it rolls on the floor or sticks to his apron, not his clothes. The apron saves you; the older home caregiver, the important laundry and mom or dad always look elegant. They have no food stains on their clothes and therefore feel good about themselves knowing their clothes are clean. So many older people look sad and abandoned just because their clothes are stained. They don’t feel good about themselves. Seniors also want to look their best and when they are well, they are in a better mood. A better mood means an easier day for the caregiver.
As a caregiver, buy a quilted apron, with bib and with a thick or laminated density. Obviously look for masculine aprons for dad and some cute feminine ones for mom. I was lucky enough to find quilted aprons at discount stores for a very reasonable price around $ 7.00. I’ve searched online and most websites start at around $ 20 for a plain non-quilted apron. An unquilted apron will be better than nothing, but it won’t be dense enough to hold liquids. Obviously if a glass of water is poured it will soak, but a drop of gravy or sauce will remain on the top layer and will not soak into the clothes.
As a home caregiver for the elderly, you can join mom or dad by wearing an apron while preparing meals, working on hobbies or doing housework. I know aprons are a bit old-fashioned in today’s life, but you will be truly amazed to see the amount of laundry the apron will save you from doing.
Many nursing homes and rehabilitation centers provide bibs for their seniors, but bibs are very undignified towels that only cover the chest area.
So make wearing an apron a family affair, make it fun, encourage your friends and family to join the “apron club”, become a trendsetter.
