Welcome to Comfort Keepers of Shelton, CT
We understand that each senior has unique needs and preferences. So, we ensure they get the in-home care they need and deserve. Our caregivers work closely with seniors and their loved ones to create personalized care plans considering a senior's unique situations, requirements, and goals.
Each of these services can be provided long-term or as needed. Caregivers allow seniors to live in their own homes for as long as possible to avoid the stress of having to move to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
With the help of Comfort Keepers, seniors can improve their overall quality of life because they can get hands-on support when needed. Our in-home care services are available in Shelton, Trumbull, Stratford, and nearby areas.
In-Home Care Services in Shelton
From companionship to help with errands and household chores, our caregivers can help seniors in the comfort of their own homes. We also offer senior safety technology such as home monitoring, fall protection, and medical alert systems. Both seniors and their loved ones can benefit from the help of an in-home care agency because having a little help can make all the difference in making your days easier to handle.
Our caregivers often create meaningful relationships with our clients and actively include activities that bring joy. Many seniors experience feelings of isolation and sadness, as their families have other responsibilities preventing them from constantly being there. Having a companion to talk to and do things with can positively impact you and your loved one. Our companion care services in Shelton can help seniors prepare meals, clean their homes, and remind them to take their medications. Comfort Keepers helps seniors stay active in their communities by doing things together, such as:
Conversation and mental stimulation
Listening to music
Light exercise, such as taking walks
Transportation to appointments and social events
As seniors age, it's common for them to have trouble with tasks that they could do easily when they were younger. Personal care is critical to a senior's overall well-being and can make all the difference in their days. Our caregivers can help clients with concerns about personal care tasks such as bathing, brushing their teeth, shaving, or applying makeup. Studies show that seniors are happier in the long run when they look polished and feel good about themselves. Personal care ensures that seniors feel good about themselves, and personal hygiene can also help prevent medical issues such as infections or diseases. We can help seniors with their daily personal care tasks, including:
Brushing teeth or dentures
Styling and brushing hair
Applying makeup and painting nails
Specialized Care Services in Shelton
Our specialized care services can benefit seniors and their loved ones, even those with unique needs. Every caregiver at Comfort Keepers specializes in memory care to ensure seniors with cognitive disabilities get the care they need when they need it the most. For seniors diagnosed with a terminal illness, we can provide end-of-life care to support them and their loved ones through challenging times. In addition, we have respite care options for family caregivers who need to take a break to take care of their own needs or go on vacation. And, when seniors return home after a hospital stay or surgery, we can work with them to ensure they recover safely.
It's common for seniors to require more and more care as they age. While assisted living facilities and nursing homes are an option, most seniors prefer to live in their own homes for as long as possible. Our around-the-clock care services ensure that seniors can get the help they need at all hours of the day. A caregiver can help maintain a senior's independence and overall well-being because they can be independent. Our caregivers can help seniors during the day or at night. Some benefits of 24-hour care include:
Help during potentially dangerous activities
Reduce the risk of cognitive decline through socialization
Respond to immediate needs
Quick response in case of an emergency
Caring for a loved one experiencing cognitive decline can be challenging and rewarding for family caregivers. Most seniors can still live independently at home during the early stages with some support throughout the day. Unfortunately, as time passes, an in-home caregiver is usually necessary to ensure seniors are safe at home. Our caregivers are trained to provide memory care to seniors who need it. We can also help with personal care, 24/7 monitoring, behavior management, companionship, meal preparation, and more.
After an extended hospital stay or surgery, many seniors are overwhelmed when they return to their homes because they need to take new medications on time, clean any surgical wounds, and get to their follow-up appointments on time. Our caregivers can help seniors get to doctors' appointments, take their medications on time, and provide emotional support. Recovering from an illness or injury can be long, and seniors often struggle to navigate new routines. We can help seniors recover safely at home and communicate their needs to their families and care teams.
Seniors thrive when actively involved in meaningful activities that bring them feelings of importance and purpose. Our interactive caregiving model encourages seniors to do hobbies, light exercise, and socialize with their family and friends. We create bonds with our clients so that we can create care plans based on their interests and current abilities. With a comprehensive approach to caregiving, we enhance seniors' quality of life and give them opportunities to achieve their goals.
Benefits of In-Home Care
