Home Health Care for the Senior Body in Traverse City, MI
Helping seniors unlock their best holistic health with Comfort Keepers home health care providers in Traverse City and the surrounding areas
Most of us have heard enough research and listened to enough advice from doctors to know how impactful exercise and activity is for our physical health. But most of us also juggle busy schedules or lifestyles that are built around sedentary work, hobbies, or socializing. For seniors, a renewed focus on health—especially taking good care of physical health—is important to ensure longevity. As we age, it becomes even more important to be sure that seniors have the resources they need to maintain their best physical health. Home health care can be an important support for your aging loved one.
When you work with home caregivers from Comfort Keepers, you’ll see that we take a more holistic view of physical activity and health. For us, maintaining physical health is much more than an exercise regimen! Activity means trying new things, accomplishing small goals, and investing time in taking care of our home environments. Your loved one’s in home health care plan might include resources like:
- Incorporating mental activity and stimulation into everyday life
- Cooking healthy recipes and keeping fresh food available to your loved one
- Maintaining physical safety in the home and eliminating slip or trip hazards
- Mobility assistance and help using mobility devices
- Transportation to nature walks, shopping malls, community festivals, and other excursions that increase physical activity
- Medication reminders and assistance following directives from doctors or physical therapists
- Private duty nursing for those who require one-on-one medical care in the home
If your loved one has directives from a doctor or other medical provider regarding dietary restrictions, daily stretches or exercises, or scheduled medications, our home caregivers can help make sure those instructions are easy to follow and maintain. The best way to maintain physical health is to follow the guidance of doctors, physical therapists, and any other medical care provider.
An in home health care provider can help with every aspect of physical health, including taking good care of your mind. Companion care is the heart of what we do, and that opportunity to connect with another person, share a conversation, and receive assistance with everyday tasks is integral to the health of many seniors.
