Personal Elderly Care at Comfort Keepers in Durango, CO
Dignified personal elderly care for seniors in Durango, CO, Farmington, NM, Aztec, NM, and surrounding areas
If your elderly loved one continues to live at home but some basic routines and tasks have become increasingly challenging for them, Comfort Keepers can provide personalized in-home assistance with hygiene, grooming, and mobility in order to boost their independence.
What Is Personal Care?
Personal home care is an all-around term used to describe caregiving services that combine assistance with personal hygiene and support with daily routines. Qualified caregivers who typically provide this kind of service help seniors with basic tasks such as bathing, dressing, toileting - and the volume of assistance itself can range from stand-by monitoring to fully engaging, hands-on care, depending on the individual needs of each client we serve.
If your aging loved one is afflicted with physical limitations or suffers from a chronic condition, we can provide mobility assistance, transferring and positioning, as well as incontinence care. On top of that, a Comfort Keeper – meaning one of our dedicated caregivers from the local roster – can prepare home-cooked meals in compliance with physician-prescribed diets, perform light homemaking chores such as dusting and vacuuming, provide medication reminders, and more.
We also run fall-risk assessments and offer specialized care for seniors afflicted with dementia. As all care plans are customized, we will make certain to include fun, meaningful activities in accordance with your parent’s interests and lifestyle. For instance, we can take them on shopping trips, walks, outings, social calls, and more. You can rest assured that our caregivers can keep mom or dad physically and emotionally engaged.
How We Can Help
At Comfort Keepers of Durango, our mission is to help seniors boost their quality of life as much as possible. In regards to this, the purpose of personal elderly care is to ensure your loved one gets the support they need to look and feel their best. With a special emphasis on preserving the client’s self-esteem, our caregivers provide dignified assistance with many hygiene tasks, including:
- Bathing and showering
- Dressing and undressing
- Putting on accessories such as belts, watches, jewelry
- Dental care
- Washing, brushing, and styling hair
- Applying nail polish and makeup
- And much more
We can all agree that maintaining good hygiene is a matter of consistency – in order to look good, a person needs to be able to bathe daily, or near-daily at least. For seniors who have a hard time getting in or out of the bathtub, taking a bath is not just a challenge – it is a hazard. On the other hand, with a personal elderly care provider to help your loved one with their routines, these concerns are easily avoided.
