One of the most important aspects of our society is the crucial need for in-home care services for seniors. For seniors who live their whole lives establishing their independence and maintaining their homes, there's nothing more unfortunate than being forced to give those things up because they are no longer able to keep up with the physical and mental demands that come with maintaining that lifestyle.

Who Usually Provides Senior Care at Home?

Historically, it has been family members who usually provide senior care at home to their older loved ones. Sons and daughters look after their aging parents or other relatives to the best of their abilities, sacrificing their time and energy to make sure that they are living a safe and happy life, even as the effects of aging continue to take hold.

However, even though there is something gloriously noble about families providing in-home care services for seniors, they are often woefully underprepared for the many dimensions that come with the job. This is through no fault of their own. It's just that they are usually not trained to do this kind of work, and even if they do have training in the medical field, they often have full lives that can make devoting their time and resources burdensome.

There's nothing like family, as the expression goes, and even though they do the best they can, for the right reasons, research shows that these familial caregivers suffer health issues when they donate so much of their energy to providing senior care at home. As time wears on and new dimensions of the situation manifest themselves, these family caregivers often experience feelings of loneliness and overwhelm, which can lead to depression and anxiety. That's where Comfort Keepers comes into the picture with in-home care services for seniors.

What Does Comfort Keepers Offer Its Clients?

When Comfort Keepers steps in, we work with clients, their families, and often other healthcare professionals to provide the highest-quality in-home senior care in Omaha. Our mission is to help ensure our clients' happiness and safety and help them maintain their independence in the face of aging and even in situations that involve dementia and Alzheimer's disease. We also aim to give the families of our clients the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their aging loved ones are being looked after by experienced, knowledgeable, and capable professionals.

After you contact us, our care coordinators will create a highly individualized care plan that addresses the particular needs of the client, as each client is unique and has particular needs. Once this in-home care plan is established, our dynamic, compassionate caregivers will work with the client to carry out the care plan. In some cases, caregivers visit with clients on a weekly or daily basis, and in others, they might receive around-the-clock care.

It's important to note that these in-home care plans can change as the wants and needs of the client change. Our caregivers are highly trained to handle any of the physical, emotional, and social needs that the client may have, and these often change over time.

What Is Included in In-Home Care Services for Seniors?

Personal care

Offering in-home care services for seniors involves working with clients on the most intimate level. To that end, our caregivers help with basic tasks, such as maintaining hygiene. Studies have shown that when seniors look and feel good and have pride in their appearance, the very real risk of depression is mitigated. We will help them accomplish even the most basic tasks that have become overwhelming to them, such as toileting, bathing, grooming, and dressing.

Personal care also includes mobility assistance, which involves helping the client get where they want to go without falling. There is less risk when the client has a steady arm to lean on, and also less temptation to skip those important hygienic tasks that everybody should be performing regularly to stay healthy.

Companion care

Our in-home care services for seniors in Omaha include a companionship component that seeks to address not only the physical and logistical needs of the client but also the psychological and emotional ones. With Comfort Keepers, clients can rely on assistance with help around the house and also for the emotional support that comes with having a trusted friend at their beck and call. We don't use words like “trust” or “friend” lightly, and we know that providing effective senior care at home is very much about establishing and maintaining a trusted relationship.

Our caregivers will stimulate clients' minds in many ways, from playing a board game to reminiscing over family photo albums. These things are important to not only stimulate and exercise the mind but also to validate the client’s thoughts and feelings about anything they wish to talk about. Logistically, there are many things our dynamic caregivers can do to make client's lives easier, including:

  • Laundry and light housekeeping

  • Meal planning and preparation

  • Grocery shopping and running other errands

  • Transportation to and from medical appointments and social engagements

  • Medication reminders

24-hour care

There's nothing like the relief that comes with knowing that your loved one is being looked after throughout the night. At Comfort Keepers, our 24-hour-care service aims to minimize any risk factors that come with aging in place during those quiet hours, including:

  • Company for those who frequently wake up in the night

  • Support for Alzheimer's & Dementia patients who experience sundowning

  • Companionship for those prone to loneliness

  • Assistance with anything else they may need throughout the evening and night

Other In-Home Care Services We Offer

We value our Veterans' mental health as well as their physical and emotional well-being and work to maintain their happiness and overall satisfaction with living independently in their homes for as long as possible. 

Additionally, we are always happy to step in with our respite care services for regular or family caregivers who need to take a short-term or extended break from caring for the seniors in their lives. 

Post-hospital care is available as well to those who have just returned home from the hospital and need an extra hand at home to recuperate properly.
