Comfort Keepers of Traverse City Specializes in Caring for the Elderly in Northwest Michigan
Caring for the elderly is our calling, providing top quality home care services for seniors who live at home in Traverse City, MI
Just like physical activity helps keep our bodies in better health, mental activity helps keep our minds in better health. At Comfort Keepers of Traverse City, we’re experts in caring for the elderly and we use a comprehensive slate of services to uplift complete health for your loved one. Our caregivers know that seniors who have more mental activity in their everyday lives are better able to preserve and maintain good mental health.
Mental activities can offer enrichment and stimulation for your loved one throughout the day. Often, your loved one already enjoys hobbies and activities that add mental stimulation to the day, such as:
- Genealogy research
- Crosswords and sudoku
- Reading a book
- Trying new recipes
- Completing a puzzle
- Visiting historical sites
One of our expert caregivers can also help your loved adopt daily practices that increase mental health like keeping a calendar, creating daily habits for meals and rest, and maintaining a medication schedule. These activities can encourage critical thinking, decision making, and memory skills.
Just like each of us has individual preferences for physical activity, your loved one will have preferences about which mental activities we’ll pick. In our many years of caring for the elderly, we’ve seen the increase in progress and positivity that comes from your loved one being invested in and interested in the activities in their weekly plan. We’ll identify the activities your loved one already loves or could try, from playing a game of strategy with your caregiver or attending a local bingo event.
Socializing is an important tool for mental activity. Caring for the elderly through companion care, as Comfort Keepers does, has been proven to support emotional, mental and social health. We’ve heard time and again that our caregivers become like family to our clients, and that’s the kind of relationship we always strive to achieve. Our caregivers can help your loved one access senior centers, community events, spiritual services, and other resources for their social wellbeing.
If you’re concerned that your aging loved one isn’t getting enough mental stimulation in their day, Comfort Keepers of Traverse City is ready to help.
