Summer Senior Care

Comfort Keepers® senior care services provides caregivers who are dedicated to helping seniors to live happily, healthfully and safely in their own homes for as long as possible. Caregivers are available for many different shifts, whether it is just for a few hours, a few days a week or even twenty-four hour round the clock care.

Seniors and caregivers develop personal relationships with one another through Comfort Keepers' Interactive Caregiving techniques. Each care provider works to develop a personal relationship with the senior, bonding over similar interests, conversation and companionship.

Seniors and their care providers can do many fun activities together, from running errands, going on walks, gardening or even going with the senior to a local swimming pool for low impact exercise. Comfort Keepers senior care services cover all the bases when it comes to caring for loved ones. Not only do caregivers spend time with seniors to develop relationships, but they can also help keep the senior safe and healthy in hot summer weather.

As skin ages, it becomes very delicate and be very sensitive to intense heat and light. Comfort Keepers senior care providers will make sure to remind the senior of steps to take to stay safe in the sun. Providers can help put on sunscreen to protect from sunburns, remind the senior to drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration and help choose protective clothing like hats or other accessories like sunglasses to protect delicate skin and sensitive eyes from the sun.

Senior care providers can also recommend fun summer activities to complete with the senior like bird watching, talking a short walk, planting fruits, vegetables or flowers in a garden or even take the senior fishing. Comfort Keeper senior care providers are also able to provide transportation to each location.

Staying active throughout the year is important for many health reasons. From increased fitness, muscle power, brain activity and better circulation for the heart, being active is a great way to stay healthy, try new things and build a relationship with the senior care provider.

Comfort Keepers senior care providers can work with seniors to learn about their activity preferences before planning trips and activities to do together.
