Customized flexible in home care plans available through Comfort Keepers for Alamo, CA seniors
Seniors are all unique, both in the amount of time they need for in home care as well as the type of services. Comfort Keepers of Livermore, CA does not believe that you should pay for or have to accept services your loved one does not really need, so every care plan is meticulously built based on individual seniors. In fact, not only are needs considered but personalities and interests also come into play. We also consider how isolated your loved one is, engagement and socialization is an important part of your loved one’s overall health so it is all taken into consideration when designing their care plan.
How We Determine the Time and Services in Your Loved One’s Care Plan
|Before we ever set up a caregiver for your senior, we send out someone who can consult with you and your loved about the specifics of a customized plan. At our free in-home consultation, we take the time to talk to both of you about health, physical abilities, and the environment that your loved one lives in. We will also want to know if the family plans to be involved with the in home care. With all this information, we can determine how much time and what services your loved one needs. This could range from a few hours a week to full time, depending on your loved one’s level of independence.|
Companionship and Isolation
Another factor that figures into our customized in home care plans is how isolated your loved one is, and if they will need help with transportation and companionship. These services tend to get ignored or left to last when care is considered, but in reality, they have a large impact on senior’s health and life span so they should get every bit as much attention as basic care services. Isolation happens as your loved one’s ability to drive diminishes and their friend circle shrinks. Comfort keepers considers this part of our care plan vital, and we work in engagement and socialization into our in home care services where ever possible. From going for walks, to trips to the senior center, and doing puzzles or helping with dinner preparation at home, we consider it vital that our caregivers engage our clients in every way possible.
