Our distinctive approach to engaging senior care is at the very heart of Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ.
Having the ability to remain in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible is very important for most seniors. Comfort Keepers® can help make this a reality. Our dedicated caregivers, the special people we call Comfort Keepers®, transform day-to-day home care services into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. We call this Interactive Caregiving™.
Watching an elderly loved one struggle to accomplish simple daily tasks such as bathing or preparing a nutritious meal can be difficult, especially when you know you don't have enough time in the day to give them the help they need. At the same time choosing elderly care services your loved one won't object to can be even more challenging. After all, no one likes to admit they need help, it goes against their sense of independence. At Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ, our caregivers offer Interactive Caregiving™, which strives to provide a more caring and loving form of senior care.
The goal is to improve the quality of life and help seniors to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Examples of Interactive Caregiving™ include walks in the park or around the neighborhood, working together on hobbies and puzzles, playing word games, reading, trips to the community center and the most important exercise of all- simple conversation. Comfort Keepers® still delivers the essential home care services such as light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, companionship, bathing, grooming and feeding; but it is Interactive Caregiving™ that caregivers and clients believe makes all the difference.
How Comfort Keepers® Can Help?
Comfort Keepers® uses Interactive Caregiving™ to make a positive difference in the lives of each senior client. Interactive Caregiving™ operates on several primary components, which our caregivers utilize as they care for, engage and interact with their clients:
Physical exercise conditions and strengthens core muscles. This practice reduces the risk of falling, which is one of the leading causes of injury in seniors. Studies show that exercise is more effective in preventing falls than home modifications.
Solving puzzles and reminiscing are important mental exercises. They keep the mind nimble and alert, which fights negative emotions and confusion.
Mental acuity for seniors also comes down to proper diet and hydration. We focus on meal preparation and make sure our clients aren't missing these essentials.
Caregiver companionship promotes home safety. Our preventative measures, including safety technologies, help seniors stay connected with the modern world.
An Interactive Caregiving™ plan is created for each senior client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities. This plan will also include a variety of activities such as:
Working together on household chores.
Planning and preparing a meal together.
Discussing current events or personal interests.
Reminiscing while viewing photo albums.
Going for a walk around the neighborhood or at a local park.
Working together on hobbies, puzzles, and crafts.
Playing board games and card games.
Working together on a computer or iPad.
Visiting the local senior center.
Attending community events.

Seniors who stay actively engaged retain better cognitive function, remain in better physical condition and live happily and independently longer.
