Non-Medical Home Care Provided by Comfort Keepers Helps Seniors in Dunkirk, MD and the Surrounding Areas Stay Safe with Mobility Assistance
Mobility assistance is one of the many non-medical home care services that are helping seniors maintain a high quality of life in Dunkirk, MD
If your loved one has limited mobility, they may need care regularly throughout the day and even into the night. Some seniors opt to move into assisted living facilities, but many would prefer to continue to live in their own homes. If that’s the case, non-medical home care provided by Comfort Keepers allows your loved one to maintain their independence by living in the comfort of their own home while still receiving the care that they need. Our well-equipped and empathetic caregivers can assist your senior in transferring, positioning, bathing, and more.
When a senior has limited mobility, it can severely impact their day to day life. Depending on their level of mobility, they may need assistance moving from room to room, getting out of bed or getting into the bath. And if they try to move without any assistance, it puts them at a greater risk for a fall. While family can help when they’re around, it’s not always possible, or the safest option, which is why our caregivers are fully trained in non-medical home care, to give you the peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands.
Physical health and wellness are so important for seniors and keeping clean can help to prevent things like infections. Non-medical home care services can help keep your senior feeling well physically by helping them with the day-to-day tasks that have started to become difficult for them. Bathing, grooming and incontinence care are just a few of the things that our caregivers can do to provide your loved one with the opportunity to have a great quality of life.
Mental well-being is just as important as physical wellness. As someone begins to lose their mobility, they may become frustrated or distressed. This is why it’s so important to ensure that they are able to participate as much as possible in their day-to-day life with the help of a caregiver. With Comfort Keepers non-medical home care, your loved one will be able to enjoy life without having to worry about how they’re going to do it. Keeping seniors active - whether it means visiting a park or doing some gentle stretching - can really improve their happiness and well-being.
It’s important to talk to your loved one about the options they have when it comes to helping them get around. Educate and inform them about the idea of an in-home caregiver. Since many seniors don’t want to give up their independence, a caregiver can be a great way to give them the independence they need to be mentally well while taking care of their needs.
