Where Comfort Meets Dignity

The Warmth of a Hug When You Need It Most

Why Blue Hug

Creating a positive bathing experience for both caregivers and the ones they are caring for by restoring a sense of comfort and dignity to the process of assisted showering.

As our loved ones age, more and more individuals are requiring the assistance of others with personal hygiene opening the door for embarrassment, discomfort, fear, and a sense of helpless indignity. These emotions are the direct opposite of what dedicated caregivers desire to inspire and encourage in their daily interactions. The Blue Hug was crafted with loving care to restore a sense of comfort and dignity to the process of assisted showering.

nice words from nice clients

“Thank you so, so, so much! My mother is 94 and was so embarrassed and cold when taking a shower that she began to refuse to be bathed at all...the Blue Hug has changed our lives and has restored her dignity and confidence!”

~ Akima S.

“I would recommend using the Big Blue Hug! When taking a shower, I get really cold and the blue lightweight slip-on is loose fitting and allowed me to stay warm. What I like most was that the garment holds warm water, so I don’t feel that I need to rush through the shower process. Being handicapped, I need all the help I can get each day.”

~ Donna, Woodstock, GA

“The shower garment Blue Hug is wonderful. My mom, Odessa, loves it. She was always cold in the shower. I was very thankful The Oaks assisted living facility in Douglasville gave us the Blue Hug to try. Thank you!”

~ Family of Odessa, Douglasville, GA

"Our new client Steve, who is in his 60’s, had a stroke 5 years ago. Since then, his mother, who is in her 80’s, has been caring for him. Unfortunately, because he is very modest and embarrassed, he has refused her assistance in the shower, so he has gone 5 years without a real bath. We helped place them in an assisted living community so now he has caregivers that can help him shower but he still would not allow it. We offered him a Blue Hug shower garment to try out and he actually loved it, and it brought his mother to tears to see him so happy. So now he allows the caregivers to help him shower and it has changed his life."

~ Senior Placement Experts, Canton, GA

"The Blue Hug is fabulous. I wish this was around when I was caretaking for my grandparents. It would have been a lifesaver. If you have someone in your life who may need assistance bathing or going to the pool, don't hesitate to buy this for them!"

~ Kaelie Birkett

"The blue hug garment is very helpful. We used this product on a dementia resident and she allowed us to shower her with no issues. She normally would fight kick and scream while we are showering her. This product allowed her to have comfort and warmth while showering. It allowed her to still be able to maintain her dignity because she was covered up. I have recommended this product to several different agencies. It would be great for hospice patients also."

About the Blue Hug Team

Our goal is to offer a practical and affordable way for caregivers and loved ones to restore dignity and add warmth to the bathing experience.

The Blue Hug was born out of deep experience as in-home and institutional caregivers for the elderly and bedridden. For years we have observed the mental and emotional anguish clients experience when it comes time to bathe. The discomfort and dehumanizing process of being completely exposed, vulnerable, and completely dependent upon another human constantly broke our heart.

Nothing is more important to us than making sure individuals requiring assistance are being cared for by caregivers that are equipped to provide the best, most loving, care possible.
