ScrubsUK - best for care at home supplies

Caring for someone at home is becoming more and more popular. If you’re a carer, you may be looking after someone who is getting older but would prefer to stay in their own home, rather than go into residential care. You may be looking after someone with an illness such as cancer. Or, there may be temporary care required following an operation or illness.

Care at Home Supplies include:

WASHING

Washing can often be a problem for those after surgery or operations and as a home carer, sometimes it’s not convenient or appropriate to use the shower or bath. Therefore, ScrubsUK has a range of innovative and easy-to-use products that will help you care for someone at home.

Waterless Bathing – With the Oasis Bed Bath Mitts and the Nilaqua No Rinse Body Wash the person you care for can feel clean even if they’re bed-bound. Heat up the Oasis Bed Bath Mitts in the microwave for a couple of seconds and gently cleanse the body from head to toe. There’s no need to rinse. The Nilaqua No Rinse Body wash works by directly applying this to skin, massing and towel-drying. Grime and odour are removed instantly.

HAIR CARE

Depending on mobility and strength, every day tasks such as washing hair can become hard to manage. Also, if surgery has recently taken place, it can also be hard to shower without bandages getting wet.

Rinse-Free Shampoo caps – these are ‘caps’ that the user puts in the microwave for 20 seconds before being placed over the hair and head and massaged. The condition shampoo is released and after a couple of minutes, the hair is left clean and towel dry.

There is no need for bowls of water or access to running water.

INCONTINENCE

If you’re a home carer for someone who is bedridden or frail, using products such as an underpad or a mattress protector will save time and energy for those who may not be able to relieve themselves in time. Even if able to stand or walk on their own, it can often be a reassurance to have the mattress protected.

Disposable underpants – these are sealed on all sides and have a soft fluff fill for maximum comfort. They often come with varying absorbency levels and are an essential for care home supplies.
