Companion Care Provides Meaningful Care for Seniors in the Western Slope in Grand Junction, CO
Comfort Keepers companion care services focus on senior wellness, both physical and mental
Our Comfort Keepers provide clients companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Comfort Keepers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Seniors may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our Comfort Keepers will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We work to ensure that each senior’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our elderly care services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Please be advised that Comfort Keepers do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Our caregivers can shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Seniors may choose to stay home or come along and help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged.
Our Comfort Keepers can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Although Comfort Keepers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our Comfort Keepers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.

Benefits of Companion Care
In-home caregiving provides seniors with a companion. When isolation and loneliness threaten to decrease seniors’ quality of life, expert caregivers attend to physical and emotional needs. Companionship care entails conversation, sharing of activities, and building of a relationship that goes beyond basic needs.
Depending upon each individual’s needs, in-home care can provide services that a family member would normally be depended upon for. Some seniors need assistance with daily bathing, dressing, toileting, and basic mobility. This constant care can be difficult and time consuming for family members to provide, leading to stress and strained relationships. With full time or respite care by a professional in-home care provider, everyone involved is happier and healthier.
In-home care can even be extended beyond the home with transportation services and accompaniment to events and appointments by the in-home caregiver. Ensuring that seniors get to appointments and run errands safely, caregivers can provide dependable transportation and a helping hand wherever they are needed.
