In Home Care For Seniors A Leading Choice For Elder Care
In home care for seniors continues to outpace other elder care alternatives in popularity as more families and older adults become aware of its advantages.
A leading provider of nonmedical in home care for seniors, Comfort Keepers® helps make home the ideal place for seniors to continue living as safely and independently as possible - for as long as possible.
Comfort Keepers offers a full range of services that can be tailored to meet each individual's need for in-home assistance - from a minimal degree of help, for just a few hours a week, to comprehensive, full-time care.
Among the many advantages of in home care for seniors over the alternatives - such as nursing home care or assisted living - is its flexibility. Services can be easily added or modified as a senior's need for assistance changes. For instance, as a senior needs help with mobility or taking care of personal hygiene, services can be adapted accordingly to ensure a high degree of safety, satisfaction and independence.
In fact, Comfort Keepers provides specialized in-home care for clients with dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
In addition, a senior's home itself can be modified to promote safety. To prevent falls, a leading cause of injury among the elderly, handrails and improved lighting can be installed, in addition to simple fixes like getting rid of throw rugs and rearranging furniture to create clear pathways through the home.
A key advantage of in home care for seniors is that it enables families to play as direct a role in their loved one's care as they are able. And with the compassionate, professional caregivers of Comfort Keepers, family caregivers have the support they need to take care of life's other responsibilities and to take care of themselves.
Plus the Information Center section of the Comfort Keepers website provides families a wide range of supportive resources and helpful advice for helping seniors enjoy safe, independent living at home. Many other sources on the Internet also offer valuable information for families wanting to improve the quality of their loved one's lives, such as the Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice.
