Several Ways Comfort Keepers Can Help

Clients and their families can feel confident in our caregivers because they have been carefully selected for their ability to empathize with others and because they have received special training in caring for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other kinds of dementia.

Our caregivers also make use of the Comfort Keepers Interactive Caregiving System.

Mental and physical activities can now be studied together. Our clients and caregivers establish bonds through time, listening to music from their favorite era, reading old classics, or talking about current events.

  • Personalized in-home care programs that take into account both physical and non-physical requirements and goals
  • Activities that are entertaining, mentally stimulating, and valuable to your physical and emotional health. These activities are part of the dementia care plan since they consider your loved one's interests and abilities to improve their quality of life and physical health.
