Client Population: The aging boom has already begun and will continue through the first quarter of the 21st century. It is estimated that by 2030, 85-90 million people in the United States will be over the age of 65 and well over one billion internationally. With the growth in this demographic and the widely held desire to maintain independence and positive self perception, it is predicted that a surge in the interest of personal care and grooming will be on maintaining the health and general well-being of our mind, our bodies, and our selves. People must have a strong sense of personal value and meaning in order to thrive. The assurance that they receive the necessary support from personal care providers in everyday circumstances is theorized to lower medical costs and increase health and well-being of the senior adult and their caregivers.
The care you offer to senior adult clients should be sensitive to the issues of potential exacerbation of physical and mental health conditions that may be present, such as diabetes, cancer, heart and lung conditions, arthritis, vision loss, hearing loss, related thermoregulation and neuropathy, increasing mobility and dexterity challenges, as well as challenges associated with mental health including depression and Alzheimer’s.
Licensed professionals will be provided 16 hours of in-class training and renew their certification on line at (4 Hours) annually. This will be followed by a volunteer commitment to the Beauty Becomes You Foundation (501(c)(3)- Elder SPA Program requiring a Minimum of 12 senior adult service visits donated annually.
