Interactive Caregiving Can Improve the Life of a Senior in Owensboro, KY
It is easy for a caregiver to become engaged in the mundane activities of the day when providing senior care. Preparing nutritious meals, responding to requests for assistance, managing medications, and cleaning are all tasks. However, at Comfort Keepers, we understand that keeping elderly lively, active, and healthy requires more than task-oriented duties.
Being active, engaged with others, and healthy are all key components of a senior's well-being. When a senior loved one is being cared for by a primary caregiver, it is vital to remember that the care should be totally personalized to their unique needs. This allows you to focus on the "whole person" and maintain activity and interest in life.
Our Interactive Caregiving concept is based on providing care for the entire person. This is a holistic approach that considers the mind, body, soul, and general well-being. Instead of completing normal day-to-day tasks, Our caregivers spend every moment with them to assist them maintain a joyful, independent existence at home. By connecting with customers physically, mentally, and socially, we support their overall health and well-being.
Seniors who engage in physical and mental activities have a better attitude toward life, better health, and better cognitive ability. Here are a couple such examples:

- Walking or riding bikes can help clients maintain strong muscles and bones
