Senior In Home Care Services for Residents in Blaine, Anoka, White Bear Lake and surrounding areas
Each year, millions of elderly Americans receive care and support from their family members so that they can continue to live independently and safe while in the comforts of their own home. Meanwhile, there are millions of Americans who require care but do not have the family or other people in their lives who are able to provide the senior in home care services that they need. Some of these seniors end up going into a nursing home or skilled care facility. While many do their best with tending to their own needs with the intermittent support of local charities and non-profits, Sometimes it's just not enough. Unlike seniors with great support networks, these seniors have limited freedom and independence, do not experience a high quality of life, and have dramatically high rates of chronic illness and psychological distress. The worst part is that for most of these seniors, life did not have to turn out this way.
Senior In Home Care Services and Their Benefits
Our in home care services assist seniors in getting the day-to-day, occasional, or even full-time support that they need to live happy, safe and dignified while remaining in their own home. With our Comfort Keepers, which is what we call our caregivers, they will come to your loved one’s home when they need it. They will provide the specific type of care that your loved one needs when they need it. The type of care and when they receive it is always in control of the client who Is receiving care. Available supports include light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, and local transportation. For seniors who require personal care support, caregivers help with eating, toileting, bathing, grooming, and dressing. Comfort Keepers also specializes in dementia and Alzheimer's care, respite support, end of life care, and hospital to home transitions.
Our senior in home care services provide elderly residents the benefit of receiving care in the comfort and privacy of their own home, while also enhancing the quality of their life. Research has proven that those who are recovering from injuries or illnesses recover fast with fewer complications than those who are in an institutional setting. Senior in home care services also reduce the risk of reoccurring hospital visits due to secondary infections, or accidents from trips or falls. Above all, receiving home care enhances the personal sense of well-being in senior residents. This is due to them being able to be surrounded by their own furnishings, memories, and activities.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of senior in home care services is the personalization of their care. When a caregiver goes to a senior's home, the senior is the sole focus of care. With Comfort Keepers, each aspect of care is based on a senior's individual and unique needs and not a one-size-fits-all care plan. As a result, the personal bond that is developed between a caregiver and senior goes beyond simple caregiving and addresses a senior's social, emotional, and cognitive needs as well.
In short, seniors who do not have family members to help with care may end up in a less than optimal or even dangerous situation. With Comfort Keepers in-home care, it does not have to be this way. Instead, seniors receive the best possible care and support, maximizing their independence and quality of life, while safely residing in the comfort and convenience of their own home.
