Home Care and the Elderly
Comfort Keepers® is an industry leader when it comes to home care and the elderly. Comfort Keepers strives to create safe and happy environments for seniors who are still living independently and who wish to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. With Comfort Keepers' staff of specially trained care providers, primary caregivers will no longer need to wonder on a daily basis about home care and the elderly loved ones they are caring for. Care providers can visit with the senior every week, every day and can even be available around the clock to care for seniors.
Comfort Keepers covers all the bases for home care and the elderly. From companionship care to personal care, helping to complete household chores, and even handling all transportation for the senior, senior care providers can lighten the care load for nearby families and primary caregivers. As long as the senior can safely get into and out of a car, the caregiver can drive the senior to any doctor's appointments, to grocery stores or pharmacies, or even out to lunch to visit an old friend!
Comfort Keepers also offers technology for home care, and the elderly loved ones feel much more secure with these new additions. For example, Comfort Keepers can integrate a small electronic box paired with a pendant, which serves as a connection to emergency services. Senior loved ones can be connected to emergency professionals within a matter of seconds after pushing the button on the pendant. Comfort Keepers also has automatic medication dispensers. The machine will dispense the correct amount of medication at a set time. If the senior does not pick up the medicine within a certain amount of time, lights will activate and sounds will play, reminding the senior to take his or her medicine. If the senior has not picked up their medication after the lights and alarms have sounded, a family member or primary caregiver can be contacted to let them know the senior has not taken the medicine. Comfort Keepers also specializes in technology for those with Alzheimer's or dementia. There is also technology available with a wander-guard to notify someone if a senior loved one is prone to wandering away from home, which can be dangerous.
