Respite Care Services
First of all what exactly is respite care? It is temporary, in-home senior care through compassionate and professional Comfort Keepers® caregivers. These caregivers provide the highest quality service to you or your elderly love. What sets this service apart is that it is understood that it is temporary, depending on your needs, the situation and how much care that each senior needs. You may be looking to take a vacation but are worried about who will take care of your elderly loved one: you can set up a service program, and Comfort Keepers caregivers will provide care for your elderly loved one while you are away, giving you peace of mind and allow you to fully enjoy your vacation without having to worry about your elderly loved one. Or perhaps you, as the primary caregiver, just need a break for a few hours each week. You have bills to pay, shopping to see to or maybe you just would like to be able to take a nap. With a respite care service plan, a caregiver can come to the home of your elderly loved one and take care of them, giving you a much-needed break.
Compassionate, Professional, High-Quality, Reliable Senior Care
Comfort Keepers provides a full range of senior care services. Caregivers are trained to provide social contact such as companionship and conversation, engaging with your elderly loved one in conversation and keeping them company. Sometimes, a senior just wants someone to sit with them and share a meal: just that alone has been proven to improve seniors' quality of life, their happiness and their health.
Caregivers also help with meal preparation by cooking nutritious, tasty, and hot meals. If a client is able to, they can help cook. This not only gives them the opportunity to enjoy well-balanced meals, but also to interact more with their caregiver.
Medication reminders are another important service that caregivers provide. Although Comfort Keepers are not permitted to directly administer medications, they can help remind seniors to take their medication on time and in the prescribed way. Caregivers can help open medicine containers and read labels.
Additional respite care services include:
- Incidental Transportation
- Grocery shopping and errands
- Light housekeeping
- Grooming guidance
