Having the right disposable gloves is absolutely pivotal when you are dealing with vulnerable people in the older age bracket. Particularly in today's standards where health and hygiene is paramount, having the correct care home gloves can quite literally be a lifesaver to prevent the spread of illnesses.

Care homes do not use latex gloves for a number of reasons. They contain natural rubber latex proteins which can cause asthma and dermatitis, and in some cases a more severe allergic reaction.
Carers should absolutely wear PPE, including either vinyl or nitrile disposable gloves. Care homes avoid using latex due to it’s properties as a common irritant. However, wearing disposable gloves is essential in care homes as it helps to protect both the carer and the individual being cared for.
Carers wear gloves to avoid being contaminated. If they come in contact with the inside of a patient's body or a wound, they are vulnerable to becoming contaminated. The same can be said of carers if they’re carrying out a task that requires them to come into contact with bodily fluids.
