We understand the challenges associated with a decline in mobility and the sensitivity associated with taking take of personal needs. Do you worry that your loved one is at risk of falling? Does your elderly parent struggle with bathing or toileting independently? Our professional home caregivers can be there to help!
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
We 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 when keeping seniors mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. We can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Our home health care services staff is trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety while providing care services. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on of the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our staff works 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 shopping, preparing a balanced meal, and feeding themselves. The loss of independence when it comes to eating can be hard to accept. Our caregivers understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, they will utilize home health care services to 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.
