Personal Home Care in Altamonte Springs, FL, and the Surrounding Area
Our caregivers can help your loved one with all personal care needs
When independent seniors need uplifting personal home care, Comfort Keepers provides supportive caregivers to deliver elite services. From dietary needs to mobile assistance, our caregivers are here to help the Altamonte Springs senior community.
What is Personal Care?
Personal home care includes daily activities or tasks that come with living at home. This includes personal hygiene, grooming, exercise, and other health-related empowerment.
Because we adapt to your senior’s individual needs, our services range from part-time to 24/7 care. Specialized care isn’t an issue with us. Our well-trained caregivers can provide dementia care, post-hospital care, condition monitoring, and much more.
Our senior care services go beyond home life. When your senior has an appointment, social outing, or just a change in scenery, our caregivers can transport and accompany your senior wherever they go.
Comfort Keepers’ goals maintain a positive and uplifting type of care. Senior health not only includes physical health but also mental, social, and emotional too. Quality of life while living at home is our priority.
Plans can include:
Senior Nutrition & Meal Prep
Many seniors have strict physician-prescribed diets. Because nutrition is vital for senior health, our caregivers pay special attention to your senior’s dietary needs. When your senior is tired of boring meals, our caregivers can create exciting and healthy foods.
Our caregivers accommodate for common dietary restrictions like:
Different medications can have food restrictions or sensitivities associated with them, and physician-created nutrition plans typically account for these sensitivities. Timing of medication doses can be a critical part of a care plan. Timing can be a concern, especially if a senior is dealing with physical limitations or memory loss.
Dehydration can lead to several serious problems if left unchecked. It continues to be one of the most frequent causes of hospitalization among older adults. Eight 8-ounce glasses are generally considered the standard when it comes to proper daily intake, but more may be needed depending on prescribed medications or health conditions.
Proper nutrition can be an issue for seniors living alone. Moving around the kitchen and lifting pots and pans may be harder than it once was, and as a result, healthier home-cooked meals are challenging. Instead, those meals may be substituted with fast food, packaged food, or simply less calorie consumption. The elderly need to consume enough calories and the right nutrients to avoid obesity, excessive weight loss, and dehydration.
Fall Prevention and Mobility Assistance
Seniors have a high risk of injury when they fall. If your senior doesn’t have proper flooring or non-slip rugs, it could result in a long stay at the hospital. Comfort Keepers caregivers are able to spot any fall risks and suggest better alternatives.
Moving from room to room with the help of our caregiver can improve your senior’s mobility:
- Less risk with trained help and a steady arm
- Less temptation to skip out on housekeeping tasks or personal hygiene, like getting to the bathroom to bathe or getting around the kitchen for dinner
- Companionship to help with chores not only makes tasks easier to complete, but also brings comfort just in having someone to talk to and socialize.
