Types of in Home Care Available for Seniors
Customized senior care from the experts at Comfort Keepers
If you or your family member are looking for in home care for seniors, you might think all care providers are alike. And care providers might all look alike in their marketing materials or online, promising safe care from qualified caregivers. At ComfortKeepers, we believe that every individual in our community deserves the highest quality of life, and the care we deliver from local caregivers fulfills this mission.
As you look for in home care, consider—just what type of help is needed? How often and for how long is help needed? When you start talking to care providers, they’ll want to know more details about what you and your family need from in home care services. You’ll also want to ask how care providers interact with insurance, if other types of funding are accepted or available, and if their caregivers are licensed and bonded.
ComfortKeepers is a non-medical caregiver agency. This means that are caregivers aren’t nurses, but they are professionally trained in various types of care, including:
- Companion care, with relationship building at the core of what we do
- Personal care, for assistance with grooming, bathing, and personal hygiene
- Daily assistance, including light housekeeping, meal preparation, and in-home safety
- Mobility assistance, including transferring and positioning
- Transportation assistance, for access to medical appointments, errands, and community events
As an agency, ComfortKeepers selects individuals to join our pool of caregivers. We act as their employer, instead of our clients having to hire, manage, and worry about taxes and withholdings for the caregivers. We select individuals based on their professional history, training, experience, and also personality traits like kindness, desire to help others, humor, and friendliness. We’re looking for individuals who will be a good fit for our clients and their families as we provide top quality home care.
For us, caregiving is not just a job; it’s a calling. We work with our clients more than we work for them! We believe in building relationships that are communicative and respectful. Our home care is designed to provide assistance with dignity, and compassion.
