Your Everyday Life

Personal care

Organisations offering personal care can offer help with getting up, going to bed, dressing, undressing, washing, bathing, personal hygiene, eating, drinking, using the toilet, managing incontinence and tooth and denture care. They may be able to help with health related tasks such as dealing with pressure sores.

All organisations offering personal and/or nursing care have to be registered with the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). CIW regulate and inspect social care providers and ensures they meet high standards. They also offer guidance on finding and choosing the right care services.
