One cannot overlook the importance of basic hygiene, and Comfort Keepers® is determined to keep its clients properly groomed. We provide comfort, relaxation, and cleanliness to our clients; after all, good hygiene is the foundation of a long and healthy life.
Although seniors typically adopt a slower and sedentary lifestyle due to their precarious conditions, that does not mean they should never be active. As part of our in home care services, our mobility assistance service allows our clients to enjoy short walks that can exercise their bodies, lower their blood pressures, improve their digestion, boost their stamina, and strengthen their hearts, among various other benefits.
Transferring and Positioning
Our staff is fully trained to carefully move and reposition clients while maintaining the seniors’ correct postures. A good posture when lying down or sitting can improve the comfort of the individual, reduce the effects of muscle atrophy, encourage proper breathing and digestion of food.
Seniors who choose our assisted living services can count on our dedicated staff to assist with incontinence and toileting. While it can be embarrassing for some to be assisted while they are relieving themselves, our well-trained staff is accommodating and sympathetic enough to help clients complete these functions while minimizing embarrassment and discomfort.
Clients who have difficulty feeding themselves due to their fragile conditions can rely on Comfort Keepers® to provide assistance as needed. Not only will our staff help our clients with feeding themselves, they will also assist in helping seniors adhere to a healthy diet that steers clear of unhealthy or dangerous foods.
Conversation and Companionship
Clients, especially those maintaining an empty nest, will need companions to talk to and engage with. Indeed, socialization can keep individuals happy and substantially improve their quality of life. Comfort Keepers® is more than willing to provide friendly, thoughtful people for its clients to interact with. We consider it essential to all our in home care services.
Seniors might not have the time or energy to purchase ingredients on their own, or even prepare their own food. Fortunately, Comfort Keepers® can do all the shopping for their clients, and even cook up nutritious and delicious meals. As part of our Interactive Caregiving program, clients are encouraged to participate in the food preparation as long as they are able.

With our Comfort Keepers, clients no longer have to worry about doing menial housekeeping chores. Our staff can handle vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping floors, and cleaning spaces such as the bathroom and kitchen.

We can shop in lieu of our clients, who might not have the capacity or time to venture out for their own groceries. We can also run errands for clients, such as picking up prescriptions or visiting the post office.
