- Improving digestion and sleep
- Increasing energy and stamina
- Strengthening the heart
Comfort Keepers in-home caregivers can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Comfort Keepers are trained to move and place clients in the correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates the following:

Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our in home care providers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, Comfort Keepers help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our caregivers understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers caregivers will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
Conversation and Companionship
Our Comfort Keepers in home care assistance provides clients companionship, for instance, through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Comfort Keepers caregivers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our in home care providers will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothes away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include:
- Sweeping and mopping floors
- Cleaning bathrooms and kitchens
Please be advised that Comfort Keepers caregivers do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Comfort Keepers in-home caregivers will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers caregivers will use any coupons provided.
Our Comfort Keepers in-home caregivers can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go:
- Attend other senior activities
- Medical appointments
- Barbershop or beauty salon
- Visit friends and family
- Other places the senior chooses.
Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Although Comfort Keepers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our Comfort Keepers caregivers can assist with:
- Opening medication containers
- Reading labels,
- Reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.
Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers caregivers can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, senior care assistance. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
You can customize your senior care plan based on your senior's unique care needs. Comfort Keepers wants your loved one to stay as independent and as comfortable as possible.
The Benefits of In Home Care
Professional home care provides significant benefits, both to the senior being served and their family. When seniors are eager to remain in their own home, the assistance of an in-home caregiver offers peace of mind as well as the assurance of safety. In-home care that is personalized to meet individual needs meets the needs of seniors and gives comfort to family members who may be concerned about their loved one being on their own.
One of the main benefits of in home care is that it enables seniors to maintain their own homes. When help is needed but seniors are hesitant to move into assisted living facilities, in-home care is an ideal solution. Offering a helping hand with housekeeping, meal preparation, and personal care, an in-home caregiver can encourage independence while ensuring safety and well-being.
In-home caregiving also provides seniors with a companion. When isolation and loneliness threaten to decrease seniors’ quality of life, expert caregivers attend to physical and emotional needs. Companionship care entails conversation, sharing of activities, and building of a relationship that goes beyond basic needs.
Depending upon each individual’s needs, home care can provide in home health care services that a family member would normally be depended upon for. Some seniors need assistance with daily bathing, dressing, toileting, and basic mobility. This constant care can be difficult and time consuming for family members to provide, leading to stress and strained relationships. With full time or respite care by a professional in-home care provider, everyone involved is happier and healthier.
In-home care can even be extended beyond the home with transportation services and accompaniment to events and appointments by the in-home caregiver. Ensuring that seniors get to appointments and run errands safely, caregivers can provide dependable transportation and a helping hand wherever they are needed.
Whether your loved one needs help 24 hours a day or on a regular schedule to assist with specific tasks, professional elder care will provide priceless benefits to every member of your family with increased quality of life and peace of mind.
