Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Our caregivers help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our caregivers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including:
- Lowering blood pressure
- Improving digestion and sleep
- Increasing energy and stamina
- Strengthening the heart
Comfort Keepers can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Home health aides 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:
- Pressure areas on the skin
- Reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles
- Encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our home health aides work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this in home care approach, senior care aides 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 home health care aides understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers in home care 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 caregivers provide 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. Our home health care aides 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 caregivers 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 in home care includes 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 do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Your senior care aide 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, which is an excellent way for seniors to stay active and engaged. We will use any coupons provided.
Our caregivers can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a loved one 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 can assist with the following
- Opening medication containers
- Reading labels
- Reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose
Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers can provide home health care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, elderly care. Through our 24 hour home care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families peace of mind.
