Transparency of care
When families and caregivers work together as part of a senior's integrated care team, our care services are most successful. Caregivers at Comfort Keepers use web portals to exchange care notes, images, and updates with family members who are interested in their senior relative's daily lives. Family members may see how the customized care plan is being executed, as well as their loved ones' physical and emotional health and what the caregiver is doing to add faith, meaning, and excitement to daily activities.
Using technology to foster connection and increase engagement
Email, social media, and phone conversations keep many of us linked to one other and the rest of the globe in today's world. When being in the same room isn't feasible, using these tools to feel near each other may be just as powerful as in-person encounters!
Finding methods to keep in touch with family and friends is crucial for seniors' mental and emotional well-being. And there's no denying that being connected to the rest of the world is advantageous to seniors. Isolation from others has negative consequences, such as impaired cognition and depression.

- Regularly scheduled phone and video calls
- Sharing of family photos and event recordings
