Comfort Keepers’ Resources and Recommendations for Family Caregivers

Many friends and family members elect to be the primary caregiver to a senior themselves. Caregiving is a rewarding endeavor, yet it introduces a range of challenges, difficulties, and concerns that demand considerable attention and planning. Family caregivers should take advantage of the many articles and informational resources that are widely available, and they shouldn’t hesitate to seek professional services, including respite care, if they feel the need for assistance.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Caregiver Resources and related topics.

Alzheimer’s in Seniors & Treatments

When we think of Alzheimer’s disease, it isn’t uncommon to picture someone who, in the midst of conversing, forgets his or her train of thought, or has trouble remembering a recent event.


Mutually Beneficial: The Value of Respite Care

Caring for an aging loved one can be a rewarding experience. In many cases, it provides the opportunity to give back to someone who may have played an important part in your life, allowing for a genuine reconnection.


Family Caregiver Study

Family caregivers take on so much – from cooking and cleaning to managing medications, looking after finances, and providing transportation to doctor appointments.


Coping with a Loved One with Hearing Loss

Presbycusis is a gradual loss of hearing that may come with age. It can be caused by changes in the inner ear, auditory nerve, middle ear, or outer ear.


Supporting Family Caregivers

There are many resources available to you. In the interest of your overall health — and that of your family and the person you are caring for — don’t approach caregiving responsibilities as if you are alone.


In-Home Care Legal Considerations

Legal matters become even more complicated during the senior years, making organization critical.


Engaging Communications with Older Adults

Communication needs for older adults can sometimes change slowly and imperceptibly over time. These changes occur due to sensory and memory loss, slower comprehension times, psychological factors, and aging processes.


Breaking the Cycle of Elder Abuse

Any senior can become prey to abuse, but those with dementia or disabilities are at a considerably higher risk.


The Antidote for Caregiver Stress? Become Engaged

More than 5 million Americans today live with some form of dementia, and caring for those afflicted creates significant stress on family caregivers. Current figures place the number of family and friend caregivers at about 15.4 million (approximately 60% of these are women); these caregivers spend an estimated 17.5 billion hours of unpaid time at a cost of $216.4 billion annually.


Caregiving Across the Miles

If you live far away, it can be very hard to provide the type of support and care your loved one needs.
