Senior Home Care Agency Promotes Independence
Comfort Keepers is a senior home care agency that provides a comprehensive menu of services to help older adults with the activities of daily living so they can continue living independently in the comfort of their own homes.
An effective alternative to other forms of senior care, such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities, a senior home care agency offers the assistance a growing number of today's seniors prefer. They want to age in place at home and maintain an optimal quality of life, safety and independence.
Seniors' family members also benefit from the services of a senior home care agency like Comfort Keepers. Many seniors are cared for by family members. But family caregivers need support so they can take care of other responsibilities, at work and at home, and get needed rest from senior caregiving. And in other cases, family members live too far away from their senior loved ones to provide care on a regular basis.
A senior home care agency provides a wide range of services that can be tailored to the exact needs of each senior. And these services can be modified as the senior's need for in-home assistance changes. Senior home care agency services include:
- Companionship care. Caregivers provide their senior clients companionship and conversation as they help around the house with tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, and driving their clients to appointments. Comfort Keepers' caregivers often engage in social, physical and mental activities with seniors to promote their health - Comfort Keepers' unique approach to senior care, Interactive Caregiving®.
- Personal care. To promote their senior clients' quality of life and self-esteem, senior home care agency caregivers help with essential daily activities such as showering or bathing, grooming, feeding and food preparation, toileting and incontinence care, mobility inside and outside the house, and transferring in an out of bed and chairs.
- Safety technology. As a complement or supplement to caregiving, a senior home care agency may offer safety technology devices that monitor seniors while they are home alone. Comfort Keepers offers SafetyChoice® technology solutions, which include personal emergency response and medication management systems. They are monitored 24 hours a day by Comfort Keepers to assure seniors' safety.
