Adding Personal Senior Care Services

Socialization and a helping hand can make a difference in the life of a senior loved one.

Personal care services such as bathing, mobility assistance, general hygiene, and more are available to seniors who desire to continue living independently at home. However, they have recently discovered that daily routines and responsibilities have become more challenging as they age.



What is Personal Care for seniors?

Personal Care

Personal senior care is a broad term that refers to basic personal hygiene and daily living activities such as dressing, grooming, and toileting assistance. Comfort Keepers' professional caregivers assist with needs ranging from stand-by service to full-time care, depending on the requirements of each client.

Our industry-leading services can range from basic tasks like bathing, mobility assistance, incontinence care, and preparing and serving nutritious meals to more hands-on personal home care services like position changes for bedbound clients and Dementia care for those with memory issues or cognitive impairments.

Personal care services may also involve assistance with outings such as social events, shopping trips, and other activities of interest to your loved one to help preserve their physical and emotional attributes.

Plans can include:

Bathing and Hygiene

Our goal at Comfort Keepers Home Care of Rochester, NY, is to help your loved one with their personalized home care routines so they can continue living their lives to the fullest. Regular hygiene and grooming have been shown in studies to benefit seniors' self-esteem and emotional well-being significantly. We assist clients who fear slipping while showering or have physical restrictions that make general hygiene routines difficult.

These Tasks may Include:

  • Showering and bathing.
  • Getting dressed, including shoes and accessories (belt, watch, jewelry, etc.).
  • Brushing teeth or dentures.
  • Styling and brushing hair.
  • Makeup application.
  • Shaving with an electric razor.

Consistency is vital when it comes to bathing — being able to bathe daily or almost daily is critical to remaining healthy. Failure to wash frequently can lead to health problems that can lead to serious health complications.

Fall Prevention and Mobility Assistance

Bathroom features are not always designed with seniors in mind and can potentially be hazardous if not equipped with the proper safety measures. This is especially true for surfaces that can get wet and slippery after a bath or shower. Reducing falls in the home is one of the top safety concerns that seniors and their families face; here at Comfort Keepers we're here to provide your loved one with the necessary assistance to keep them safe and joyful at home.

Our caregivers considerably lower fall prevention risk by offering mobility support inside the home and keeping the home safe from possible hazards. There are numerous advantages to having additional support for mobility assistance around the house, including:

  • Less risk with trained help and a steady arm.
  • Less temptation to skip out on housekeeping tasks or personal hygiene, like getting to the bathroom to bathe or getting around the kitchen for dinner.
  • Companionship to help with chores makes tasks easier to complete and brings comfort just in having someone to talk to and socialize.

Transferring and Positioning

Moving around the house can become increasingly challenging as we age. One of our primary focuses is assisting our clients in comfortably moving around their homes. Getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs are examples of this. Proper transferring and positioning can help to reduce the risk of bedsores and other bed-related injuries. This also aids in preventing muscular atrophy and promotes proper breathing and digestion. Exercising and transferring positions throughout the day can also reduce the likelihood of falls and other injuries.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

We understand the delicate nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Our caregivers provide compassionate and dignified assistance with these personal areas of daily living.

Our caregivers can assist your loved one in the comfort of their own homes by developing a trusting relationship. Staying clean and comfortable is a crucial aspect of dealing with incontinence care.

Incontinence can be a tricky subject to broach with a senior loved one. If they are unwilling to ask for help, hygiene problems might begin and worsen over time.

Senior Nutrition & Meal Prep

Our caregivers can assist with physician-recommended nutrition and diet recommendations. We can help with grocery shopping and meal preparation to satisfy nutritional needs or unique dietary restrictions.

Seniors who are on a restricted diet are not uncommon. A doctor or a nutritionist may include unique dietary needs in your personal care plan, restricting what can be taken or in what amounts. Common examples include:

  • Different medications can have food restrictions or associated sensitivities, and physician-created nutrition plans typically account for these sensitivities. Timing of medication doses can be a critical part of a care plan. Timing can be a concern, especially if a senior is dealing with physical limitations or memory loss.
  • Proper nutrition can be an issue for seniors living alone. Moving around the kitchen and lifting pots and pans may be more complicated than it once was, so healthier home-cooked meals are challenging daily. Instead, those meals may be substituted with fast food, processed food, or simply less calorie consumption recommended daily. Your loved one needs to consume enough calories and the proper nutrients to avoid obesity, excessive weight loss, and dehydration.
  • Dehydration can lead to several severe problems if left unchecked. It continues to be among the most frequent causes of hospitalization among older adults. Eight 8-ounce glasses are generally considered the standard for the proper daily water intake, but more may be needed depending on their prescribed medications or health conditions.

Whether someone is looking for support with a specific diet or companionship in the kitchen, our caregivers can provide the support needed for nutritional at-home meals. Our goal is for your loved one to enjoy sitting at the dinner table and look forward to eating healthy meals daily.

Our uplifting personal senior care services can also include the following:

  • Care for those with memory issues or cognitive impairments.
  • Medication reminders and daily management.
  • Assisting with errands or transportation to and from appointments.
  • Support for physician-prescribed exercise programs.
  • Fall risk assessment and assistance with fall prevention.
