At-Home Care is an Effective Alternative for Seniors
Seniors and their families are benefitting from at-home care, a safe and effective alternative for senior care. Most seniors prefer to live in the safety and comfort of their own homes where they are most familiar. However, when routine tasks and activities become difficult or impossible because of aging, seniors need consistent care. There are several options for families who are unable to properly care for their elderly loved ones, including assisted living, nursing homes or other similar care facility and at-home care.
Comfort Keepers®, the compassionate and professional at-home care service, provides high-quality, respectful elder care to seniors who wish to remain as independent as possible, in the comfort of their own homes. Comfort Keepers, the friendly and helpful caregivers, visit seniors in their homes and help with tasks such as:
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Grocery shopping and errands
- Companionship care
- Transportation services
- Personal and hygiene care
- Transferring and toileting
- And much, much more!
Caregivers give the senior's family a hand, allowing them to concentrate on work and other responsibilities. Family members can experience peace of mind, knowing that their elderly loved ones are in good hands, those of Comfort Keepers.
Comfort Keepers, the established and reliable at-home care provider, helps seniors with non-medical services, such as light housekeeping, activities of daily living and personal and companionship care.
Many seniors require post-hospital support following surgery, injury or other hospital stays. At-home care agencies often partner with skilled health care agencies to provide wound care, speech, physical and occupational therapy, disease education, nursing care and pain management.
A Comfort Keepers intake nurse will visit the senior in their home, speaking with the senior and their family to determine exactly what kind of care the senior requires. Service packages can vary, ranging from a bath visit once a week to full-time 24/7 at-home care.
Comfort Keepers also offers several options of advanced technology including an automated medication dispensing system, door and window sensors, alert systems for falls and other emergencies, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and more. These reliable and advanced technology solutions provide safety to the senior, even when no caregiver or family member is present. The senior's family can rest assured, knowing that their elderly loved one is safe.
