Transferring and Positioning Help from Comfort Keepers Elderly Care Services in Holland, MI and Surrounding Areas
Learn more about how our elderly care services can help your loved one move around the house in Holland, MI
As we continue to grow older our bodies will slowly become more and more immobile. It’s a natural part of life but can be particularly hard to come to terms with for your aging loved one who wants to hold on to as much independence as possible. With our elderly care services, we work to reduce the risk of falls and bedsores within your senior relatives’ home, so they can remain safe while maintaining their desired independence.
Guiding from Here to There with a Helping Hand
There are many risks associated with seniors who live alone. We take for granted our mobility on a daily basis and think nothing of trips to the bathroom, kitchen, or living room. Seniors have a difficult time getting around their house and doing what seems like small and simple tasks like us. Furthermore, when they have a hard time getting around, they are more likely to skip out on important daily things like bathing, upkeeping hygiene, getting proper nutrition and food intake, and much more.
Consider these important benefits from having elderly care services for your loved one:
- Less risk for falls and injury by providing a steady arm and proper guidance throughout the home.
- Daily assistance keeping up hygiene and crafting nutritious meals by helping to guide them to the bathroom and kitchen.
- Companionship and help with chores around the house to provide comfort and socialization.
Don’t Let Bed Sores Take Over
For seniors who may be more immobile than others, the risk of bedsores is significant. If they are lying in bed or sitting down for most of the day without repositioning, they are likely to develop these pesky, painful and sometimes infected blisters.
A caregiver who provides proper positioning services will eliminate the risk of these seniors developing bedsores and assuring that they remain healthy and pain-free. Elderly care services are essential for elderly citizens who want to remain at home instead of at an assisted living facility. They still require many of the services they would get at an assisted facility and that’s why the specialists at Comfort Keepers work to help these seniors achieve the best quality of care while being able to remain within the comfort of their homes. Comfort Keepers also helps with incontinence care, hygiene help, and more. Get started today on developing an elderly care services plan for your loved one and contact Comfort Keepers of Holland, MI.
