Keeping Clean With Mobility Issues

As a company dealing in mobility aids, we understand how hard it can be to attempt to keep yourself clean whilst tackling daily movement issues. Whether you’re bed-bound or suffer from joint pain, restricted movement or find getting in and out of the bath troubling, CareCo offers a wide range of products that can help make your hygiene routine simpler and easier, erasing any worry or anxiety you might have.

Nilaqua Rinse Free Shampoo

Our first suggestion of products to choose from come from the Nilaqua range. Their No Rinse Shampoo and Conditioner are both convenient ways to keep your hair clean, shiny and nourished, without the need to add water or other products. Simply apply the liquid, gently massage into your scalp, and thoroughly towel dry to be left with clean, soft hair. Its paraben-free, pH balanced, non-irritating formula can be used by nearly everybody, and won’t leave your hair sticky or streaked like other shampoos and conditioners on the market. Nilaqua also offer a Rinse Free Body Wash that you can just apply, massage in, and towel dry off, similar in style to their haircare products. Its mild, odour-free formula won’t irritate your skin, making it suitable for daily use. A brand you can trust, the Nilaqua range will help keep you clean whilst maintaining your dignity.

We also stock a wide variety of TENA goods, a name recognized for their incontinence underwear, but also known for hygiene products. Our first suggestion is their Wash Cream or Wash Mousse, popular products used by professional caregivers. Both designed with no-rinse formulas, the Wash Cream is an emulsion-type cleanser, whilst the Wash Mousse is lighter in texture. Gentle alternatives to soap and water, these TENA products cleanse, restore and protect even the most delicate areas, and are ideal for incontinence care where the skin has to be cleaned regularly. As one customer has described, these items require ‘no scrubbing, no rinsing, and can be used without much undressing’, perfect for those who are bed-bound or who find bathing difficult. Also available from the TENA range are the Wet Wash Glove, Wet Wipes, and Soft Wipes, which can be used in conjunction with the Wash Cream or Wash Mousse. Designed to make cleaning yourself or others easy, comfortable and convenient, their soft-touch feel and mild scent means they can be used frequently, great for areas that need regular cleansing.

Other personal hygiene products available through CareCo include the Oasis Cinco Wipes and the Reynard Shampoo Cap. Designed to cleanse, moisturise and deodorize, the Oasis Cinco Wipes provide a barrier protection and are anti-microbial, great for protecting irritated skin. The Reynard Shampoo Cap is designed to take away the tiresome trouble of washing your hair, an ideal item for bed-bound patients or those unable to comfortably use their bath or shower. Simply apply the cap, massage in, and leave to do its work, leaving you with streak-free, clean hair once more.

We also stock a large variety of bathing aids, helping to make bath time an enjoyable experience again. The Long Handled Bath Brush, Lotion Applicator and Extra Large Sponge are all designed with mobility issues in mind, with their long, angled handles perfect for those harder to reach spots such as your back and shoulders – you’ll never have to strain to keep yourself clean again. Alongside these cleaning aids, consider the Profilo Shower Stool and the Inflatable Bath Cushion, both helping to make showering or bathing pleasant and easy.

Here at CareCo we understand and sympathize that normal, daily task can become bothersome when you suffer from movement and mobility problems. However, we aim to help everyone, making us a company you can trust.
