Learn more about choosing the right care for your loved one
When a senior loved one starts to have difficulty performing daily living tasks, it can be difficult to know just what to do. Many family members start to think about assisted living facilities and nursing homes because that is what many people have been conditioned to do. Even though this has been part of the senior culture in America for many years, there is a growing trend away from commercial and institutional settings in lieu of increased senior home care.
The data from surveys and research is clear: the vast majority of seniors want to remain at home and age in place. In fact, a study by AARP placed the number of seniors who wanted to live out their senior years at home at upwards of 95 percent. In order for seniors to safely remain at home when they require supports and services to complete tasks, efficient and effective elder care is required. This is where Comfort Keepers homecare solutions truly stand out.
Comfort Keepers offers what may be the largest variety of homecare solutions and services in the elder care industry. If a senior is going to require a certain non-medical support to remain safe and independent, Comfort Keepers wants to provide that support. From laundry and housekeeping to transportation, meal preparation, and medication management, caregivers have your senior loved one covered. For seniors who require more support, personal care includes help with eating, toileting, bathing, grooming, and dressing. While all of Comfort Keepers services engage the senior cognitively, emotionally, and socially through the company's trademarked interactive caregiving model, Comfort Keepers also offers targeted companion care services, if needed.
