Abstract: Concerning the effectiveness of foot bathing and Touch Care as care-giving methods, verification was obtained by physiological data gathered from fingertip pulse and vital sign readings, as well as a survey questionnaire. In testing each care method, namely, carbonated water bathing, lower leg Touch Care, foot bathing, and foot bathing + Touch Care, readings were taken 3 times: before, immediately after, and 10 minutes after completion of the procedures. The results were as follows: These nursing cares showed effectiveness 77.8% - 90% of the cases. The various methods showed an improvement in participants’ mood in the following order of effectiveness: foot bathing + Touch Care, Touch Care, carbonated water bathing, and foot bathing. When comparing only to foot bathing, foot bathing + Touch Care had a greater effectiveness in warming the body. Touch Care and foot bathing + Touch Care showed effectiveness in improving blood circulation, and carbonated water bathing showed effectiveness in warming the body without altering vital signs. The procedures’ results showed the importance of applying these care techniques to the type of care most suitable for the subjects, and the importance of application in regard to support of mental health.
