We provide a wide range of personal home care services.
Your loved one deserves personal home care services tailored to fit his or her personal situation and needs. Comfort Keepers is honored to provide professional, compassionate, home care services that can keep your loved ones safe and healthy. We offer services ranging from bathing, grooming, and hygiene to feeding and special diet. No matter what personal care services your loved one might need we individually customize each care plan.
Here are a few of our personal care services:
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Caregivers can help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our Comfort Keepers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. Comfort Keepers can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Caregivers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
When providing our personal care services, our Comfort Keepers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, Comfort Keepers help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our Comfort Keepers understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
