Helping seniors with care , constipation and other health issues at home

During the last week, I and other caregivers have been helping clients who are alone at home and need care with bowel movement, grooming, massage, leg exercises and food.

One senior had only 20% of his kidneys working and I did the following to ensure good bowel movement:

  • Mix warm drink of prune juice, aloe and cranberry juice (with drops of mineral oil)
  • Massage back in downward motion before going to the toilet
  • Inserted glycerin suppositories while using finger tips to massage the anus and to stretch
  • Cooked bone broth and egg omelet with lots of onions and garlic (spices of turmeric and cumin)
  • Hot compresses on his back and told him to not control his urine/poop
  • Got his appetite back with home made mouth wash of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda
  • Cleaned ears with hydrogen peroxide
  • And other caregiving tips from Motherhealth 408-854-1883

A 62 yr old with paralyzed arms and lower back needs help with grooming , exercise and bowel movement, so I teach other caregivers to:

  • Mix warm drink of prune juice, magnesium, liquid fiber and cranberry juice (with drops of castor oil)
  • Massage legs and arms in downward motion with range of motion exercise on the bed.
  • Inserted glycerin suppositories while using finger tips to massage the anus and to stretch
  • I cut his hair and made a mixture of wash (hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and peppermit essential oil)
  • And other caregiving tips from Motherhealth 408-854-1883
