Elder Care Services & Interactive Caregiving in Hiram, GA
Two ways Comfort Keepers ensures your loved one is connected as part of our elder care services for loved ones
One of the biggest challenges faced by seniors as they age is isolation. Not only must they cope with eventually losing the ability to drive safely, but as they age their circle of friends gets smaller and smaller. This isolation and the potential loneliness that goes with it, can have a serious impact on your loved one’s health. Comfort Keepers of Hiram, GA recognizes the significant impact on both physical and mental health that occurs when seniors become isolated and has incorporated two distinct approaches into our care at home programs to help your loved one stay active and connected.
Our Interactive Care
Our trademark Interactive Care offers a new type of care at home that incorporates interaction into everything we do in your loved one’s home. Instead of being an afterthought, interacting with the client and encouraging them to live as independently as possible is the focus of our care. This means that when our caregivers are working within the home they incorporate different types of interaction with everything they do. A caregiver might share a meal or sit with their client as they eat so they are not eating alone. Daily walks might be incorporated into their schedule to ensure that your loved one is getting consistent fresh air and exercise.
As part of our interactive care at home our caregivers also spend time at home with their clients doing things like games, puzzles, or reading a newspaper. Outside the home caregivers may take your loved one to the mall or grocery shopping. The goal is to help each of our clients maintain as much of an independent living style as possible.
One of our newest offerings is the grandPad, a senior tablet that help your loved one stay connected even when there is no one else around. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your loved one has a way to connect with loved ones and Comfort Keepers around the clock. In addition to chatting with the family your loved one can receive and send pictures, play games, and listen to music. The grandPad offers a single device that can allow your senior to enjoy games and videos, socialize, get questions answered and more.
