Comfort Keepers provides personal home care that includes expert transferring and positioning services for seniors in and around Marietta, GA
With age, decreased mobility becomes much more common and can begin to pose a safety risk. If your elderly loved one is having trouble getting around the house or you find that they are spending most of their days in bed, it may be time to consider personal home care services. Our trained caregivers at Comfort Keepers of Marietta, GA help seniors get around safely and reduce the risk of falls while improving their quality of life overall.
Safety at Home
On the most basic level, personal care services include assisting seniors with basic needs, like moving from room to room. Whether they are moving from the bedroom to the bathroom to tend to personal hygiene tasks or from the living room to the kitchen to fix themselves a meal, a Comfort Keepers caregiver will be the guiding arm that helps them move about safely and assists them with these daily living tasks. Some of the benefits to this type of assistance include:
- Avoid falls and other risks with trained help and a steady arm.
- Less temptation to skip essential daily living tasks, like proper hygiene and preparing meals.
- Comfort in knowing that there is always a watchful eye on your loved one and that they are in good hands.
When a person is spending extended periods of time in bed, bedsores become a risk. They become an even greater risk when the person has trouble repositioning themselves. This is why our caregivers are trained in positioning and will be able to help your loved one move properly within the bed in order to avoid bedsores that can be painful and become easily infected.
If your senior loved one could use some extra assistance at home and you think they may benefit from our personal home care services, schedule a complimentary in home consultation with us. A care coordinator will come to your home and discuss the best options and craft a care service plan that meets your loved one's needs and desires specifically, so you can be sure that we are the right fit.
