Senior Care in Traverse City, MI and the Surrounding Area
Comfort Keepers of Traverse City offers dynamic senior care that flexes with your loved one’s needs
After a lifetime of independence, personal choice, and their chosen way of life, seniors may find it challenging to ask for or accept help meeting daily needs. At Comfort Keepers of Traverse City, we know your number one priority is your loved one’s wellbeing, and we also know that your loved one is a unique individual with preferences, habits, and needs. Our flexible Interactive Caregiving model is designed to meet those daily needs, maintain comfort, and encourage familiar and favorite activities, social opportunities, and choices.
This senior care philosophy fuels our individualized programming. We create care plans that can be customized for each of our clients, and incorporate all individual physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs. This Interactive Caregiving model means you choose the services that are right for your loved one, without paying for anything you don’t need.
Your senior care aide will work to understand your loved one’s hobbies, preferences, habits, and tastes, and facilitate the interactions and activities that will brighten their day. And with the help of a caregiver, your loved one will never have to tackle health challenges or lifestyle changes alone.
The Interactive Caregiving principles that guide our work are:
- An active body is more able to heal, cope with current conditions, and maintain good health for longer.
- An active mind is more reflexive, communicative, and maintains better mental health in the long run.
- A well-nourished body, enjoying a varied diet, is better able to heal from accidents and illnesses and avoid medication interactions.
- A safe home decreases the likelihood of accidents, and ensures a rapid response when illnesses or accidents occur.
When your loved one receives senior care from Comfort Keepers, you’ll see each of these guidelines in action. We’ll incorporate physical activities, being mindful that housekeeping and yard work are made safer with physical assistance and mobility assistance from a caregiver. We’ll include mental activities that your loved one prefers, whether that’s the opportunity to meet new friends at the senior center or games of strategy with your caregiver. Plus, our caregivers work to ensure a safe home for your loved one, and plenty of fresh, healthy food to meet their needs. We also offer specialized services such as private duty nursing, dementia care, and end of life care.
If you’re helping to care for a loved one who lives alone, Comfort Keepers is ready to help. Call our friendly care coordinators today at (231) 222-5376 to learn more about Interactive Caregiving and our customized senior care plans.
