Expert Personal Care Services in West Chesapeake, MD
Comfort Keepers is licensed to provide personal care services to seniors in West Chesapeake, MD.
Comfort Keepers of West Chesapeake, MD provides quality personal care services for local seniors and older adults. We understand the sensitivity associated with taking care of personal needs as well as the challenges associated with a decline in mobility and movement. Does your elderly parent struggle with bathing or toileting independently? Do you worry that your loved one is at risk of falling? Our team of experienced home caregivers are here to help.
Bathing, Grooming, & Hygiene
We help seniors feel positive about their appearances through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin, but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our caregivers are trained to provide such personal care services with the utmost respect and dignity for the senior.
Toileting & Incontinence Care
Our staff also works to maintain seniors’ dignity and self-esteem when it comes to daily living activities such as toileting assistance or incontinence care. Through a caring and sensitive approach, our caregivers will help to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort seniors may feel in such situations.
Feeding & Special Diet
Some seniors and older adults need help shopping, preparing a balanced meal, and feeding themselves. The loss of independence when it comes to eating can be hard to accept. That’s why our caregivers turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time, engaging the senior in companionship and conversation.
Our caregivers will also help to ensure that your senior loved one is adhering to any prescribed diets or nutritional guidelines to prevent or control medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Our personal care services also include less intimate duties, such as mobility assistance, transferring and positioning.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health conditions. There are many physical health benefits to staying mobile later in life, including:
- Lowering blood pressure
- Improving digestion and sleep
- Increasing energy and stamina
- Strengthening the heart
We’re also happy to accompany seniors on short walks or help with light exercise activities.
Transferring & Positioning
Our personal care services staff is trained to move and place clients in the correct posture positions to maintain health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs yields many benefits, such as:
- Eliminating pressure areas on the skin
- Reducing weakening and stiffening of muscles
- Encouraging proper breathing, digestion, and elimination
