How Comfort Keepers Can Help
In addition to being trained in Alzheimer’s care and dementia care, our caregivers are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers' unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the Alzheimer's disease and dementia care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level. The ability to provide one on one, personal care allows our caregivers to truly focus on providing a calming, yet interactive experience. Caregivers spend time learning about the likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior's life to get a better understanding of their life so they can provide the best care possible.
While developing a relationship with the senior, our Comfort Keepers caregivers can plan dementia friendly activities, as well as provide important activities of daily living, such as meal preparation, help with walking, medication reminders and assistance with taking showers or toileting. Our caregivers have experience in helping seniors who are just beginning to show signs of dementia all the way up to seniors who need constant, 24 hour care.
