Enhancing Quality of Life: Personal Care for Seniors by Comfort Keepers of Fort Myers
Some seniors have difficulty doing routine personal care duties due to disease, injury, or other aging-related factors. As a result, there may be feelings of loneliness and increased risks for mental and physical illnesses like depression and anxiety.
Fortunately, seniors with difficulty with daily life activities may find comfort in the personal care services provided by Comfort Keepers of Fort Myers.
What is Personal Care?
Many seniors want to live comfortably in their homes for as long as possible but may experience health issues requiring extra caregiver support. Comfort Keepers offers personal care services in Fort Myers to continue aging in place.
An aging loved one can preserve their comfort and enjoy their golden years with dignity, independence, and peace of mind with the assistance and supervision of a personal caregiver.
Personal care is a broad concept that encompasses fundamental hygiene practices and everyday activities such as getting dressed, grooming, and using the bathroom. Our caregivers at Comfort Keepers are well-trained to assist with personal hygiene needs, offering varying levels of support based on each senior's specific requirements.
Personal hygiene may also include bathing, help with moving around, managing incontinence and toileting, preparing and serving meals, as well as more involved personal care like repositioning for seniors who are confined to bed and specialized assistance for individuals with memory problems or cognitive limitations, evaluating and preventing the risk of falls, and monitoring changes in condition.
Comfort Keepers will create a customized care plan considering your loved one's physical security and emotional health. We aim to help our seniors live comfortably at the highest possible standard of life while maintaining their independence.
