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 caregivers 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. Caregivers 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 the 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
Our in home care for seniors services 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, caregivers 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 caregivers understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, our in home care for seniors services 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.
Conversation and Companionship
Our caregivers provide clients companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Caregivers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our caregivers will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put the clothes away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to their preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens.
Caregivers will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged.
Our caregivers can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Although caregivers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our caregivers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.
Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers can provide in home care for seniors for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, in-home care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of caregivers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
