Fall Risk Reduction and Caregiver Services for Seniors in Memphis, TN from Comfort Keepers
Utilizing caregiver services means making sure your aging parent stays safe & independent in the comfort of his or her own home
Even if your senior loved one seems healthy and vital, it doesn’t mean he or she wouldn’t appreciate some help around the house. Using caregiver services means providing your aging parent with the assistance he or she needs with daily living chores. A Comfort Keepers senior caregiver will help older adults with all the tasks they might find difficult or simply boring, including dusting, vacuuming, dish-washing, doing the laundry, taking out the trash, grocery shopping, and so on.
There’s another reason why hiring a caregiver is a good idea – to ensure the utmost safety of your aging family member. The sad fact is that about 30 percent of all seniors in America fall down or experience a similar kind of accident at their home at least once a year. In fact, most of the injuries American seniors sustain are caused by falling. If there’s no one around to help them get up, your loved one might stay on the ground for hours.
When you use caregiver services to check up on them on a regular basis, you will reduce the risk of something bad happening to them. Furthermore, the job of the caregivers is to assess the risks and do all in their power to remove them. For instance, the caregivers might decide that some furniture needs moving or that some handlebars need to be installed.
Apart from taking care of their physical health and wellbeing, caregiver services will also ensure your senior stays happy. This is something that they can achieve simply by providing them with companionship, something that most seniors appreciate a lot. If your senior has recently lost a partner or has been living alone for a long time, he or she would definitely cherish some company.
But simply being a conversational partner is not the only role of caregivers, they also need to encourage the senior to live an active social life. Our caregivers will encourage them to get in touch with old friends, as well as to meet new people living in the same area of Tennessee or Mississippi.
