Our Comfort Keepers team provides clients with companion care as part of our care solutions. This can include a conversation at mealtime or performing a senior’s favorite task together. We love working with seniors and performing their favorite tasks with them. This can include anything from taking a walk in the park or putting together a puzzle to going through photo albums of a senior’s life and reminiscing about the past. Social contact is proven to enhance a senior’s happiness, health and overall quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to get out of the house and shop for groceries or fix a well-balanced meal. When purchasing and preparing meals, our home helpers will keep in mind any special diets or allergies that a senior may have. We even take into consideration a variety of medical conditions that your senior may have including high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes. We encourage seniors to help with shopping and meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our team will tend to the laundry either at a laundry facility or at a client’s home. As part of your services, we will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We also work to ensure that we do a senior’s laundry according to his or her preferences.
With in home care for the elderly, our Comfort Keepers team performs most domestic tasks. If they are able, we encourage seniors to assist with the housework as this can help them feel useful and needed.

Our Comfort Keepers team can shop for groceries and run errands for a senior. We encourage seniors to join our care aides when they go to the grocery store or run errands like going to the post office or picking up prescriptions. By joining their care providers on errands, this can be an excellent way for seniors to stay active and engaged. Our care providers will go to the stores that our clients prefer and use any coupons that are provided.
Our Comfort Keepers team can also provide incidental transportation for clients. A senior might not have the ability to drive any more nor have family or friends that are able to drive them to places they want to go when they want to go. Our transportation services allow them the freedom they are used to having to go shopping, go to medical appointments, go to the beauty salon or barbershop, attend other activities and go to other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
