Basic Care and Comfort

We begin the new section today – basic care and comfort which deals with providing care and comfort and assistance the client in performance of activities of daily living.

Just like always we’ll break things down into sections as follows:

Nutrition and Oral Hydration

Elimination
Personal Hygiene

Mobility/Immobility
Assistive Devices

Rest and Sleep
Non-Pharmacological Comfort Interventions

We’ll cover each of those topics in the following five or so posts. As we’ve mentioned before, you can do tests focused on this topic in Saunders.

We’ll cover the first topic later this week.
