For example, moving an area rug that could be a fall hazard, making sure cabinets are stocked with healthy and nutritious food. or making sure all doors are locked before leaving the home.

Senior care providers can also be responsible for helping the senior get enough daily exercise within the activity level permitted by their physician.  For seniors who are more active, Comfort Keepers caregivers can drive the senior to a local recreation center to enroll in low-impact swimming classes, walk around a local mall or visit museums or libraries. If the senior would prefer to stay at home, senior care providers can suggest things to do around the home that would help contribute to their overall health, like going on walks around the neighborhood or gardening. For seniors who are restricted to a chair, caregivers can provide assistance with seated exercises to increase circulation and heart health.
