Hygiene is one of the things that doctors emphasize if you are a senior who has attained the age of 65, have retired and live on their own. You will agree with me that whenever there is no one to remind you some of the simple things such as brushing your teeth, it becomes difficult for seniors to avoid forgetting them. Forgetting is not a crime if you are a senior, and with that idea, you need to come up with ways of making sure that you don’t forget to brush up. Make sure that you create or invent ways that would remind you to brush up even when there is no one around to remind you.
Creative ways that would help you remember to brush on daily basis
Add a reminder to your phone
Luckily, modern day phones have come with application which will help remind you on basic things such as brushing and doing other things. With that idea in mind, you need to create a reminder which will keep reminding you on daily basis. When that alarm goes, just stand up and go look for some water, toothpaste and your tooth brush then start brushing. That will help you as far as the need to keep hygiene of your teeth is concerned. It is very crucial to make sure that you teeth remain health for longer even though people think that seniors may not keep their teeth for long.
Keep your brush near your bed
Seniors spend most of their time in bed and it is very important to keep your teeth tools near your bed so that as soon as you wake up, you will grab your tools and go straight to your sink and start cleaning you teeth. That is what you need to do. Thanks to the heavens that seeing is remembering and seeing is also believing. The moment you put the tooth brush and toothpaste near your bed, you will certainly remember that you need to brush your teeth.
See a doctor regularly
If you will commit yourself to seeing a dentist, this will be like you are creating a kind of partnership. With that idea, if you see a dentist regularly, then it means that you will never forget that your teeth are important. Consultation is the best thing that could keep reminding you on the importance of maintaining your teeth hygiene.
