24 Hour Home Care in Enfield, CT, and the Surrounding Area
Discover how Comfort Keepers around the clock care can benefit loved ones who need more intensive care
There are many reasons a senior may require assistance with daily living activities to remain independent. In some situations, pain or a loss of mobility may limit a senior's ability. In other situations, a senior may have memory issues. Despite their challenges, however, these seniors still want to remain in the comfort and convenience of their own home, but what happens when the level of care required to be safe exceeds a senior's ability to care for themselves?
When Should You Get 24 Hour Home Care?
Many seniors who lack family support end up moving into an assisted living community. Others try to get by with support from local non-profits and volunteer agencies. Sadly, most of these situations only prolong the inevitable move to a nursing home. The good news is that there is another option.
Comfort Keepers provides professional in-home care for seniors who require help or assistance with their activities of daily living, companionship, or local transportation. This care is available for a few hours a week up to full-time 24 hour home care. This means that even if a senior's challenges progress to a level where part-time support is no longer enough, Comfort Keepers 24-hour care will still be there.
From support for a senior who is bedridden to keeping a senior with dementia or Alzheimer's disease safe from wandering, professional caregivers follow a specialized plan of care tailored to the senior's individual needs. Of course, short-term assistance for seniors who need 24 hour home care while recovering from a surgery or acute illness is also available. With Comfort Keepers, around the clock care can also be used as part of a respite care plan.
If your senior loved one requires round-the-clock care, there are options beyond the nursing home. To find out if Comfort Keepers 24 hour home care is the full-time care solution for your senior loved one, call a Comfort Keepers senior care coordinator today.
