Nursing Home Facilities

The Blue Hug is helping bring the focus back to dignity and hygiene for caregivers and patients at nursing home facilities all across the nation.

The Importance of Nursing Home Facilities for Our Elderly Citizens

As our loved ones age, it's important to ensure they receive the best care possible. Nursing home facilities like yours are an excellent option for elderly citizens who need around-the-clock care and attention. You work hard to provide residents with access to medical professionals, a safe and comfortable environment, and specialized care tailored to their unique needs. The caring staff at nursing homes like yours are dedicated to ensuring each resident receives the care they deserve and the attention they need. Our loved ones deserve the absolute best care as they age, and nursing homes offer an incredible, exciting opportunity to provide just that.

The Challenges for Local Nursing Home Facilities, Caregivers, and Our Patients

As caregivers, we often become the only support system for the elderly residents who reside in our nursing home facilities. It's our responsibility to ensure that they are in good health and are treated with respect and dignity, despite any physical or mental challenges they may be facing. Unfortunately, one of the biggest challenges that both caregivers and patients face is maintaining proper hygiene. From bathing to oral care, it can become a daunting task when dealing with limited mobility or cognitive decline. Yet, it's crucial to uphold the patient's human right to experience basic hygiene and self-care without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. We understand the difficulties, but it's our duty to create an environment that promotes wellness, respect, and dignity for our patients. That’s why The Blue Hug was invented.

“The Blue Hug garment you gave me was gifted to one of our 92 yr.-old hospice patients, who resides in a Nursing Home. Her primary hospice diagnosis is Alzheimer’s Disease with severe dementia and increased agitation. Before we started using the Blue Hug garment, this patient often refused baths and showers, and was often combative with our CNA’s. Unfortunately, she frequently required anti-anxiety medication prior to ADL care, in order for hospice and/or nursing home staff to be able to provide the care that she needed and deserved. Since we gifted her with the Blue Hug garment, she is now allowing staff to bathe and/or shower her 3 – 4 x per week! There has been a significant decrease in her agitation, and zero combative episodes toward staff. WHAT A SIMPLE AND AMAZING FIX! Why didn’t someone think of this sooner?! Needless to say, we will be recommending this to family members and other nursing facilities that we work for our patients who suffer with Alzheimer’s, Dementia and any other conditions where we feel this garment might be helpful. Thank You so much! It has truly made a difference in the life of this patient!”

The Blue Hug Helps Provide a More Pleasant and Dignified Bathing Experience

By now, we all know that assisted bathing can be an awkward and uncomfortable experience for both patients and caregivers. The Blue Hug shower garment was designed with the understanding that the bathing experience should be as dignified, calming and pleasant as possible for all parties involved. Our garment offers full coverage, leaving no abnormal part of the patient's body exposed, while also being easy for caregivers to use and adjust as needed for each patient. We believe that using the Blue Hug will make a noticeable difference in the experiences of both patients and caregivers at your Nursing Home Facility. We truly hope that by providing a product that helps to improve the overall feeling of comfort and dignity during the bathing process, we can help bring a small amount of joy to the lives of those we care for. And that’s something that would surely brighten every caregiver’s day as well.
