Every client has unique care needs and situations, which is why Comfort Keepers of Marietta, GA offers a full range of in home care services, from companionship to personal care, to provide seniors with the right amount of support for independent living at home.
Conversation and Companionship
Our experienced caregivers keep seniors company and provide companionship through conversation or activity. Social contact such as eating meals together, playing games, or taking walks is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and overall quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Our caregivers will prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Senior clients are encouraged to help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Laundry & Light Housekeeping
Our caregivers will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or at a laundry facility. They will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away according to the senior client's unique preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks such as dusting, vacuuming and organizing. We find that seniors like to assist their caregivers with housework because it makes them feel useful, needed and accomplished. Please be advised that we do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Our caregivers will shop for groceries and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Senior clients may choose to stay home or they can come along; getting out of the house is an excellent way to stay active and engaged.
In addition to in home care, we also provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping or attend other activities and social outings. We will also them to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, or anywhere else the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. We will assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding clients when it's time to take a dose.
Depending on the client’s needs, we will provide in home care for as little as a few hours a week to full-time, around the clock care. We coordinate our 24-hour caregiving responsibilities into shifts, ensuring that someone is always awake and alert to help your loved one during the day or not. This approach also offers seniors and their family members peace of mind.
Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Our caregivers will help your senior loved one feel positive about his or her 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.
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, and strengthening the heart. We also encourage movement by accompanying seniors on short walks or helping them complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Our caregivers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our caregivers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort that seniors may feel associated with toileting assistance or incontinence issues. We strive to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of our senior clients on a daily basis.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some seniors may need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our caregivers will turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers 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, or diabetes.
