Find out how our in home senior care services can help your loved one with Parkinson's or ALS
Comfort Keepers provides a wide range of in-home supports and services designed to maximize a senior's freedom and independence, but did you know that Comfort Keepers also provides several specialized services such as Parkinson's and ALS care?
Neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and ALS slowly rob a senior of their ability to communicate, use their body, and care for themselves. These diseases normally start with smaller symptoms like forgetfulness, weakness, and muscle tremors. As time passes, the senior loses their ability to speak, write, perform self-care, and even control their involuntary body functions like breathing. Due to the ever-increasing time and complexity of in home senior care services, many families start to think about care facilities for their loved one during the mid to late stages of the disease. With Comfort Keepers, however, seniors have the option of remaining in the comfort, convenience, and familiarity of their own home.
Standard supports and services include housekeeping and personal care ranging from bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting to personal hygiene support, meal preparation and eating assistance, light housekeeping and laundry. Of course, companionship, mobility assistance, and transferring and positioning support are also important components of our in home senior care services.
Since Parkinson's and similar ailments almost always impact a senior's ability to get around, Comfort Keepers offers local transportation support as well as help running errands, shopping, and socializing.
Comfort Keepers services are custom-tailored to meet a senior's specific needs. Care plans are also highly flexible so they can adapt to a senior's changing requirements. Services are available from a few hours a week up to full-time 24-hours care, 365 days a year. Round-the-clock care is shift-based so seniors never need to be without the support they need.
