Providing Compassionate In Home Care To Seniors In Fairfax, VA
Nothing can prepare you for the incredible amount of hard work involved in caring for an elderly loved one. Providing this level of care can not only be physically demanding, but it can also be emotionally and mentally draining, especially if you don't have the right type of training.
For many the challenge of providing this type of in home care can prove to be overwhelming, leading to the placement of their loved ones in a nursing home or assisted living facility. At Comfort Keepers serving Fairfax, VA, and the surrounding area, we offer a wide range of elderly care services intended to reduce the level of physical and mental stress caring for an elderly loved one can bring with it. With flexible care plans that cover everything from respite care to allow primary caregivers a bit of time to relax to round the clock dementia and Alzheimer’s care and beyond, we’ll work with you and your loved one to find what works best for both of you.

Our in home care plans can include one or more of the following core services:
Dementia Care & Alzheimer's Care- A caregiver specially trained to care for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease will assist your family by helping create a plan of action that will help your loved one be able to live in their home as safely as possible. This can include educating families about the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, round the clock care, watchdog technologies, and more.
Personal Care and Light Housekeeping- A caregiver will assist your loved one with a variety of personal care and household activities. This can include things such as helping with the laundry, planning, shopping for, and cooking delicious and nutritious meals, ensuring the safety of your loved one’s home by checking that common safety hazards are addressed, and more.
End Of Life Care- A caregiver will provide support to your family in a multitude of ways including taking care of household tasks so that you can focus on spending time with your loved one, ensuring that your loved one is comfortable by providing bathing, dressing, and toileting services, and helping your family make the most of your limited time together.
Respite Care- If you are a primary caregiver who is feeling a little burnt out or the spouse of a senior who has spent time in the hospital or rehab you may find that respite care is just the thing you need! With Comfort Keepers, you can request temporary help for as much, or as little, time as you need. Your schedule is already complicated, so we can have a respite caregiver available when you need one.
Transitional Care- Transitioning back home after an extended hospital or rehab stay can be a challenge for many seniors and their loved ones. There are doctor’s appointments to keep up with, care plans to follow, and medications to pick up to name a few! When you choose transitional care from Comfort Keepers you’ll receive assistance with all of that, along with much more, in order to help make your transition as seamless as possible
Why Should You Choose Comfort Keepers?
One of the ways in home care from Comfort Keepers is the best in the business is our caregivers. Each caregiver we hire has been carefully chosen for their training, skills, and dedication to providing the finest services and undergoes a full background investigation and is licensed, insured, and bonded to ensure our client never has to worry about who is caring for their elderly loved one and in their home. Our goal is to provide your loved one with the same level of care that you, their family member, would provide for them.
We do this by providing a unique type of care called Interactive Caregiving. This is the Comfort Keepers philosophy that seniors are able to live their happiest and healthiest lives when they are supported physically, mentally, and socially. We encourage the seniors in our care to work with their caregivers to create nutritious meal plans, exhilarating, physician-approved exercise routines, and exciting social outings.
Additionally, if your loved one has difficulty or is no longer able to safely drive on their own, our caregivers can help provide transportation. Whether your loved one needs to go to the doctor for a check-up, the grocery store for a last-minute ingredient or The Young at Heart Senior Center for some coffee and conversation (or maybe even some pickleball!), one of our caregivers can help them get there.
