In Home Care Services in Nashville, TN and Surrounding Areas
Customized, quality in home care services for Nashville seniors
Every client has unique care needs and situations, so each Comfort Keepers office offers a full range of companionship and personal in home care services to provide seniors with the right amount of support for independent living at home.
Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Our care experts 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. Care providers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort seniors may feel during this process.
Mobility-focused in home care services help 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 lowered blood pressure, improved digestion and sleep, increased energy and stamina, and strengthening of the heart. Care assistants can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Caregiving aides 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 care providers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist them with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, we help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel about their 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. We understand this and we train our caregivers to be particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, care aides 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 compassionate care agents provide clients with companionship through conversation and activities such as sharing a meal. Social contact like 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. In home care services providers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences. This will help them get the proper nutrition they need on a regular and consistent basis. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our caring senior aides will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothes away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping in home care 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. Please be advised that care agents do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Senior care aides 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 the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Home helpers will use any coupons provided.
Our care assistants 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 we cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our senior helpers 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, we can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, in home care services. Through our 24 hour home care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
