Companion Care from Comfort Keepers in Franklin, NC, and surrounding areas
Uplifting Companion care and friendship in Franklin, Cullowhee, Sylva, and surrounding areas
We at Comfort Keepers® are well aware of the profound effects that socialization and companionship can have on the mental health and well-being of the elderly. Opportunities to interact with people and develop relationships with friends, family, neighbors, and community members can help alleviate depression symptoms, minimize elder isolation and loneliness, and potentially lower the risk of dementia.
Spending time with our caregivers provides your loved one with not only someone to help around the house or cook a meal but also a friend who provides social connection and a companion who may assist them in returning to the activities that bring them joy.
What does companion care entail?
Companionship, also known as companion care, is a type of care that gives emotional support, camaraderie and socializing. The following are examples of common companion care activities in the home:
We focus on activities that offer delight, give mental stimulation, and promote physical and emotional well-being at Comfort Keepers. Our caregivers communicate with a client's loved ones on a frequent basis to update them on their progress, answer questions, and simply check-in by offering companion care.
An all-encompassing strategy
Our Interactive Caregiving philosophy places a premium on caring for the whole person. It's a holistic approach that considers the mind, body, soul, and overall well-being of the individual. We use every minute to undertake jobs and activities with our loved ones, rather than just doing for them, to promote engagement and fulfillment. We can lift the emotions of our customers and their families by focusing on Interactive Caregiving.
How Can Comfort Keepers Assist You?
Our caregivers are qualified and knowledgeable in a wide range of care services that assist senior mental health and home companionship. This includes the following:
Meal Preparation and Nutrition
Our caregivers can help with food shopping and meal preparation, as well as nutrition and diet regimens, are given by your doctor. Diet has a significant impact on general well-being and reduces the risk of several common health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. Our caregivers can provide the assistance needed for healthful at-home meals, whether someone needs help following a special diet or just wants some company in the kitchen. We want mealtime to be both nutritious and pleasurable.
Companionship and Conversation
Seniors who remain socially involved have a higher quality of life than their solitary peers, according to studies. They also have a lower risk of depression and cognitive deterioration in general. During their favorite activities, our caregivers provide seniors with a conversation, mealtime company, and fellowship. Clients and caregivers can create long, meaningful relationships by completing chores together.
Light Housekeeping and Laundry
All laundry needs can be met by our caregivers, either at home or at a nearby laundromat. Washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean clothes away are examples of these services. Vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and trash removal), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder are all examples of light housekeeping services.
Shopping for groceries and doing errands
Grocery shopping, medication pick-up, and other errands can be incorporated into a Comfort Keepers care plan to assist folks who prefer not to or are unable to, leave their house. Trust caregivers to provide assistance with daily living.
We provide transportation services to those who require assistance returning home after a hospital stay or who require a trip to and from essential appointments.
Transportation services are provided for seniors and the elderly to maintain independence and ensure freedom for appointments as well as continue to improve outside the home with companionship.
Reminders for Medication
Medication reminders can help caregivers ensure that clients take their medications as prescribed. They can open pharmaceutical bottles, read care plans and prescription labels, and remind clients when their next dose is due.
Comfort Keepers creates personalized care programs that address physical safety, emotional well-being, and sociability. Our mission is to assist our clients in achieving the highest possible quality of life while remaining independent at home.
