Home Health Care & Interactive Caregiving™ in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Interactive Caregiving is our unique approach to providing home health care, and it touches everything we do.
Comfort Keepers takes home health care to a level beyond that of other in home care providers through a special program called Interactive Caregiving. Interactive Caregiving allows caregivers to keep aging seniors active in almost every way, so that they are able to enjoy a better quality of life overall. The first aspect of Interactive Caregiving involves keeping aging seniors mentally active. Secondly, caregivers focus on keeping clients physically active in order to capitalize on the benefits of exercise. In addition, aging seniors need to spend time with those around their own age and socialize so they can retain their zest for life. Finally, having a caregiver around from Comfort Keepers allows aging adults to express themselves emotionally and enjoy the companionship.
The first aspect of Interactive senior care focuses on keeping aging adults mentally active. In order to do this, caregivers will hold conversations with aging adults, encourage them to perform puzzles, and play games that are mentally challenging. Caregivers will also take part in hobbies with your senior loved one in order to offer them companionship when performing enjoyable activities.
Caregivers who want to provide excellent senior care do what they can to keep aging seniors physically active. Caregivers realize that not all clients are able to perform substantial physical activity. This is why caregivers are able to customize their activity program in order to meet your loved one's needs. Taking clients out into the community is a great way to keep them physically active.
Caregivers from Comfort Keepers are there for aging seniors, as they make an emotional connection with them. Since a caregiver will spend a lot of time with your client, they are there to listen to anything they have to say and converse with them at any time. Over time, a strong bond is formed between a caregiver and a client, as they enjoy each other's company.
The Interactive Caregiving™ philosophy of care stems from a belief that your loved one will feel better if he or she is treated like a whole person. This may seem like a given for any in-home l care service, but the engaging activities and caring interaction that make this relationship possible are essential parts of any Comfort Keepers program.
Interactive Caregiving consists of four key principles of home health care:
- An active senior mind promotes independence and better mental health.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- Physical activity helps seniors maintain muscle tone and range of motion.
- Safe home environments reduce the likelihood of accidents and falls.
Since these principles are so important to how our caregivers, or Comfort Keepers™, approach their care, you’ll see this reflected in a number of care services that we perform on a regular basis, such as
- Preparation of nutritious meals, including special diets,
- reminiscing about the past with your loved one,
- coordinating travel to social events with friends and other local seniors,
- participating in classes and other hobbies that keep seniors mobile when possible, and
- working together on crossword puzzles or other games your loved one enjoys.
