Interactive Caregiving Can Make a Difference in the Life of a Senior in Reno, NV
Learn about Comfort Keepers unique approach to care
It is easy for a caregiver to get caught up in the typical day-to-day tasks when providing senior care. Tasks like providing healthy meals, responding to calls for help, managing medication, and cleaning. However, we know at Comfort Keepers it tasks more than task-oriented duties to keep seniors vital, active, and healthy.
A senior's well-being depends on a variety of factors -- being active, feeling connected with others, and feeling healthy. When the main caregiver is providing care to a senior loved one, it is important to note the care should be 100% personalized to their unique needs. This allows you to focus on the "whole person" to maintain activity and engagement in life.
Caring for the whole person is at the center of our Interactive Caregiving™ philosophy. This philosophy is a holistic approach that considers mind, body, spirit, and well-being. Instead of just doing typical day-to-day tasks, Comfort Keepers uses every moment to do with them to help them maintain a happy, independent life at home. By interacting with clients physically, mentally and socially, we help to enhance their overall health and well-being.
Seniors who are physically and mentally active have a more positive outlook on life, enjoy better health, and have higher cognitive functioning. A few ways this happens are:
- Active minds promote independence, better mental and physical health, happiness and longer lives.
- Physical activity maintains muscle and bone strength, fosters independence, and can lessen or delay the effects of aging.
- Proper nourishment provides energy, both physically and mentally.
- Safe living environments help prevent accidents and ward off illness, but also facilitate timely responses when either occurs.
At Comfort Keepers, our caregivers participate in physical activities with elderly loved ones. All these activities, when enjoyed together, create a bond between the caregiver and client. These activities can include:
- Walking or riding bikes to help clients maintain strong muscles and bones.
- Playing games or solving puzzles to encourage healthy mental stimulation.
- Spending time together recounting memories can make the one you care for feel less isolated.
- Being well nourished by preparing and eating meals together, encouraging further socialization.
