Interactive Caregiving™ - Our Approach to Senior Care
Our distinctive approach to senior care is at the very heart of Comfort Keepers®.
One of the most important things to seniors is the ability to live independently in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. Helping your loved one stay independent and healthy is the goal of our Flagstaff in home care team. Each professional caregiver receives meticulous training in our proprietary Interactive Caregiving™ approach to care. Our proprietary and unique interactive caregiving blends strategies that work with technology that emphasizes full engagement and interaction.
The goal is to improve the quality of life and help each senior to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Comfort Keepers delivers essential personal care, companionship, and housekeeping services − and it is Interactive Caregiving that our clients and caregivers know makes a major difference.
Keeping Seniors Engaged and Active
After living an independent life, it can be frustrating and stressful for seniors to realize they no longer have the mobility they once had. To ease these challenges, caregivers want seniors to take an active role in their care. Each professionally trained caregiver creates physical, mental, and social activities that seniors want and that they look forward to doing. We want your loved ones to visit friends, solve crossword puzzles, and listen to music. We want them doing all the activities that make them the happiest. Our senior in home care givers work hard to make this a reality.
By encouraging physical and mental interaction, our seniors gain healthier and more fulfilling lives.
The Interactive Caregiving™ Difference
Interactive Caregiving™ means that your loved ones never have to tackle their health or recovery alone. Our caregivers work side-by-side to improve wellbeing and maintain independence. We use this system because we believe it makes a positive difference in all our clients' lives. For instance:
- Physical exercise conditions and strengthens core muscles. This practice reduces the risk of falling, which is one of the leading causes of injury in seniors. Studies even show that exercise is better for fall prevention than home modifications.
- Solving puzzles and reminiscing are important mental exercises. They keep the mind nimble and alert, which fights negative emotions and confusion.
- Mental acuity for seniors also comes down to proper diet and hydration. We focus on meal preparation and make sure our clients aren't missing these essentials.
- Caregiver companionship promotes home safety. Our preventative measures, including safety technologies, help seniors stay connected with the modern world.
- Comfort Keepers’ unique Interactive Caregiving™approach operates on four central principles. Each of our trained caregivers employs these principles as they care for, engage, and interact with their clients:
- A senior with an active mind is happier, lives a fuller life, and engages with others.
- A well-nourished senior has a more active mind and body.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With a customized Comfort Keepers’ care plan, your loved one can remain in his or her home longer. This alone is a touching and life-changing gift for aging seniors. Family members can take comfort in knowing their loved ones are in the safest hands possible. Our caregivers do more than meet daily needs. They provide ready companionship for your loved ones at a time when they need it most.

Senior Companion Care and Elderly Companion Care
In-home senior companion care supports both seniors and elderly companion care for overall health & well-being
Loneliness is one of the biggest problems affecting older adults every day. More than one-third of people over the age of 65 in the United States live alone, and many of them struggle with loneliness. Senior Companion care and Elderly companion care provide needed companionship which helps ward off feelings of emptiness or isolation and loneliness which can lead to serious health problems.

- High blood pressure
- Clinical depression
- Dementia or cognitive decline
- Engagement in risky or unhealthy behaviors
- Early death
Loneliness can be a vicious cycle, as the feelings are contagious. People that are lonely tend to become negative and that negativity can damage relationships with friends and family/ Many people just don't like or care to be around negative people.

- Senior Nutrition
Our Comfort Keepers make sure seniors consistently eat a nutrient-rich diet that promotes good health. They often share meals with their clients because companionship at mealtime stimulates the appetite. Our caregivers will also grocery shop for healthy and nutritious foods. Many times a senior will accompany the caregiver making grocery shopping a trip that they look forward towards.
