personal carepersonal careContact Us to Get Started

At Comfort Keepers Davie, FL, we offer personalized personal care services to seniors who want to maintain their independence at home. Our experienced caregivers provide assistance with daily tasks, including personal hygiene, grooming, mobility, and more.

What is Personal Care?

Personal Care for Seniors in Davie, FL

Personal care encompasses a range of basic hygiene and daily living tasks, such as dressing, toileting, and grooming. Our trained caregivers provide varying levels of support, from stand-by assistance to full care, depending on the individual needs of each client.

Our personal care services include assistance with bathing, toileting care, incontinence care, meal preparation, mobility assistance, and position changes for bedbound clients, specialized care for those with cognitive impairments or memory issues, fall risk assessment and prevention, and monitoring of changes in condition. We also offer assistance with outings, social events, shopping trips, and other activities that promote physical and emotional engagement.

Personal home care services can also include assistance with outings, social events, shopping trips, and other activities of interest to maintain engagement both physically and emotionally.

At Comfort Keepers Davie, FL, we develop custom care plans that prioritize the physical safety, emotional health, and socialization of our clients. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of life possible for seniors in Davie, FL, while maintaining their independence at home. Contact us today to learn more about our personal care services.

Plans can include:

Bathing and Hygiene 

At Comfort Keepers, we strive to help our clients maintain their personal hygiene routines to improve their self-esteem and emotional well-being. We understand that seniors may face challenges when it comes to grooming and bathing, such as fear of falling or physical limitations. That's why we offer assistance with tasks such as:

  • Showering and bathing
  • Getting dressed, including shoes and accessories (belt, watch, jewelry, etc.)
  • Brushing teeth or dentures
  • Styling and brushing hair
  • Makeup application
  • Shaving with an electric razor

Fall Prevention and Mobility Assistance

When it comes to personal care in Davie, FL, it is crucial to prioritize safety and reduce potential risks, especially for seniors. The bathroom can be a hazardous area, with surfaces that can become wet and slippery after bathing or showering, making falls more likely. To minimize the risk of falls and ensure seniors' safety, our caregivers offer mobile assistance within the home and help eliminate fall hazards.

By having additional support for mobility throughout the home, seniors can have trained help and a steady arm, reducing the risk of accidents. Having a caregiver also provides accountability for keeping up with important tasks, such as housekeeping and personal hygiene, which can be difficult to manage alone. Moreover, companionship from a caregiver can provide a sense of comfort and socialization, making tasks easier to complete. For quality personal care in Davie, FL, our caregivers prioritize safety and offer comprehensive assistance to ensure seniors' well-being.

Transferring and Positioning

As seniors in Davie, FL, and the surrounding area age, they may face challenges when it comes to moving around their homes comfortably. At Comfort Keepers, we prioritize assisting our clients with proper transferring and positioning to make navigating their homes easier. This includes helping them get in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs.

By using the appropriate equipment and techniques, we can reduce the risk of bedsores, muscle atrophy, and falls. This is especially important in Davie, FL, where seniors may be at increased risk of falls due to the humid climate and the prevalence of tripping hazards in the home.

Proper transferring and positioning can also help promote healthy breathing and digestion, which is important for seniors who may have respiratory or gastrointestinal issues. Our caregivers in Davie, FL, are trained to support clients in the correct position and encourage regular movement to help maintain muscle strength and prevent atrophy.

Overall, our goal is to provide seniors in Davie, FL, with the support they need to move around their homes safely and comfortably while also promoting their physical health and well-being.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living.

At Comfort Keepers, we can provide a senior incontinence care plan and help with daily hygiene. By building a trusted relationship, our caregivers can help your loved ones in the comfort of home. A big part of dealing with incontinence care is simply remaining clean and comfortable.

Incontinence can be a difficult issue for a senior to discuss. If the senior or a loved one is not willing to ask for help, hygiene issues can arise and may compound over time.

Senior Nutrition & Meal Prep

Our caregivers can support physician-prescribed nutrition and diet plans. We also provide assistance with grocery shopping and meal preparation that meets nutritional needs or accommodates special dietary restrictions.

It is not uncommon for seniors to be on a restricted diet. A doctor or a nutritionist may include special dietary needs in a wellness plan, which can include limits on what can be consumed or in what quantities. Common situations include:

  • 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.
  • 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. It's especially important for the elderly to consume enough calories and the right nutrients to avoid obesity, excessive weight loss, and dehydration.
  • Dehydration can lead to a number of serious problems if left unchecked. It continues to be one of the most frequent causes of hospitalization among older adults. Eight 8-ounce glasses is generally considered the standard when it comes to proper daily intake, but more may be needed depending on prescribed medications or health conditions.

Whether someone is seeking help following a special diet or looking for companionship in the kitchen, our caregivers can provide the assistance necessary for wholesome at-home meals. Our goal is to make mealtime both healthy and enjoyable.
