My friend was having trouble dispensing her medicine correctly. Our township senior advocate suggested contacting Comfort Keepers as she had dealt with them for years and highly recommended them. Denise Nemeth came out and we had a wonderful and informative visit regarding services that they provide. All that was needed was help with medicine. Comfort Keepers was very professional with supplying only what was needed by my friend, but will be ready with any other services needed down the road.
The item that was suggested was the MedMinder. This device has been a Godsend! The unit which fits easily on a counter, is not purchased but has a nominal monthly service charge. There are 28 locked compartments for dispensing medicine up to4 times a day for one week. Individual times are programmed in. At the appropriate time, the correct compartment unlocks and a bright light flashes from the compartment. If the medication is not taken after 30 minutes, a buzzer begins to sound along with the flashing light. The buzzing increases in volume and repetition. This continues for one hour. If the medication is still not taken, a text, an email and a phone call are sent to designated person/s and MedMinder is also notified. The client also receives a phone call telling them they have not taken their medications. If, after 2 hours the medication is still not taken, that compartment locks, light and buzzer stop. The MedMinder may be unlocked by the dedicated person who has a key. The MedMinder runs off of regular household current and has a 12-hour battery backup. No computer hookup is needed, but you do need to be in cell tower range.
If a friend or loved one needs to have their medicines dispensed, this is the device for you. What a life saver!! Thank you Comfort Keepers for all your help!!
From the initial phone contact when I spoke to Janet through to the care providers, I found Comfort Keepers to be a caring and professional service. You demonstrated your patience and concern for my mother's situation, and you were open to feedback.
Little things like preparing herself ahead of time as to the routes she needed to take to ensure she got Dixie to the right place at the right time, thus doing away with any confusion as to appointment locations. This person ensured Dixie took the right medication at the right time and socially interacted with Dixie, making the day very pleasant and giving Dixie a sounding board for conversation. This wonderful employee swept the floors, vacuumed, watered the plants, prepared meals and many other tasks, thereby helping Dixie prevent any accidents.
I wish to acknowledge the superb contributions to my mother’s safety and wellbeing made by the people of Comfort Keepers. Not only did you arrange for her care on very short notice, but every caregiver who came to the house was well prepared for her difficult work. Thank you for taking on the task and performing it in a superior manner. At the outset, I had no idea that your service even existed, much less could be made available so quickly. As the days passed, I was impressed with each of your caregivers as I met them. Every one of them was compassionate and skilled and added a unique touch to her care. You came recommended by a senior advisor and was told yours was the top agency of its kind. She was certainly correct in that judgment.
I am very pleased that I chose Comfort Keepers. Their commitment to client care and integrity of their staff make families of loved ones completely at ease knowing that they are being looked after the way a family member would look after them. In essence, I am happy to say that Comfort Keepers are our ‘extended family.’ I would highly recommend Comfort Keepers to anyone who asks for in-home care as they are, in my opinion, the best and most trusted in their field.
I wanted to send a few words your way regarding the service you and your staff provided to my parents when we were all in a bit of a crisis. We needed care a.s.a.p. I made the first call to Comfort Keepers late in the evening. Not only was it was returned immediately, you found someone to come in the next morning.....and there was NO MINIMUM three or four hour time requirement. WOW! A couple of things after that which exceeded my expectations... your staff made follow up calls to see if everything was going well, you had a staff member visit with my parents to ensure they were comfortable with the care giver, you provided the same care giver time and time again to reduce confusion. I spoke with many staff members on the phone when calling in and each and every one of them was courteous, caring and extremely helpful. Thank you for making my job of "care giver" a much, much easier one. Keep up the good work!
Comfort Keepers really saved me at a difficult time of my life with my wife Anne. They were there to the very end of her life.
I want to personally thank you for taking care of my mom during her last days. Your time with her was special and helped make her comfortable. I have a newfound respect for the care you give people. You are truly special.
Thank you so much for the assistance you gave us. We were at the end of our rope and didn't know who to turn to. We knew Dad didn't want to go to a nursing home, but we couldn't stay with him 24/7 and carry on with our lives. I was going to quit my job so I could stay with him when Comfort Keepers came into our lives. You were a Godsend.
Comfort Keepers were able to give my grandmother the companionship and care that she needed. They took her to the library, they provided for her needs, and we were very fortunate to have the opportunity to get to know our caregivers. Trustworthy and flexible, they were able to help in just about every situation. Thanks to all!
Comfort Keepers is a group of well trained, caring professionals. They provided my Dad with dignified quality care as well as with love and compassion. For these care givers, it wasn't a job, it was a calling.
I hired Comfort Keepers for my Mother during hospital stays. My Mother suffers from Alzheimer's. Comfort Keepers came to our family's rescue on short notices, providing mom with patient, kind, and caring companionship when she needed it most. I fully recommend Comfort Keepers.
All caregivers have been kind, compassionate, caring, and dedicated to making life easier and better for my dad and our whole family.
Comfort Keepers has been a lifesaver for our family. They have been there for my mother-in-law when we couldn't be. They are very responsible and give the highest quality of care.
