What Is Personal Home Care?

Personal home care is a broad term that supports basic personal hygiene and activities of daily living, including dressing, grooming, and toileting. Comfort Keepers’ trained caregivers assist with care needs ranging from stand-by assistance to complete care, depending on each client’s individual needs.

This can include basic tasks, such as bathing, mobility assistance, incontinence and toileting care, and preparing and serving meals, to more hands-on personal home care, including position changes for bedbound clients and specialized care for those with memory issues or cognitive impairments, fall risk assessment and prevention, and change in condition monitoring.

Comfort Keepers can develop a custom care plan for your loved one, including physical safety and well-being, emotional health, and socialization. Our goal is to help our clients have the best quality of life while maintaining their independence at home.

Plans can include:

Bathing and Hygiene

Comfort Keepers’ goal is to assist our clients with their home care routines so they can look and feel their best. Studies show undeniable benefits for seniors’ self-esteem and emotional fitness to have regular hygiene and grooming. We are here to help clients who fear falling while bathing or have limitations that make grooming tasks difficult.

These tasks may include:

  • Showering and bathing
  • Getting dressed, including shoes and accessories (belt, watch, jewelry, etc.)
  • Brushing teeth or dentures
  • Styling and brushing hair
  • Makeup application
  • Shaving with an electric razor

With something like bathing, consistency is important — being able to bathe daily, or near-daily, is essential to staying healthy. Health issues can be caused by a failure to wash frequently enough, yet senior bathing is a task that gets harder as the years pass.

Fall Prevention and Mobility Assistance

Avoid unnecessary risks in the bathroom and around the house. Bathroom features are not always designed for seniors and can be a fall risk. This is especially true for surfaces that are wet and slippery after a bath or shower. Reducing falls in the home is one of the top safety concerns seniors and their families face.

Our caregivers significantly reduce this risk by providing mobile assistance inside the home and helping to keep the home safe from fall risks. There are many benefits to having extra hands for mobility assistance around the house, including:

  • Less risk with trained help and a steady arm
  • Less temptation to skip out on housekeeping tasks or personal hygiene, like getting to the bathroom to bathe or getting around the kitchen for dinner
  • Companionship to help with chores not only makes tasks easier to complete, but also brings comfort just in having someone to talk to and socialize.

Transferring and Positioning

As we age, moving around the house can get more complicated. One of our top priorities is helping our clients move around their homes comfortably. This may include getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs.

Proper transferring and positioning can reduce bedsore risks. This also helps reduce muscle atrophy while encouraging proper breathing and digestion. It can also lower the risk of falls and injuries.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living.

At Comfort Keepers, we can provide a senior incontinence care plan and help with daily hygiene. By building a trusted relationship, our caregivers can help your loved ones in the comfort of your home. A big part of incontinence care is simply remaining clean and comfortable.

Incontinence can be a problematic issue for a senior to discuss. If the senior or a loved one is not willing to ask for help, hygiene issues can arise and may compound over time.

Senior Nutrition & Meal Prep

Our caregivers can support physician-prescribed nutrition and diet plans. We also assist with grocery shopping and meal preparation that meets nutritional needs or accommodates special dietary restrictions.

It is not uncommon for seniors to be on a restricted diet. A doctor or a nutritionist may include special dietary needs in a wellness plan, which can include limits on what can be consumed or in what quantities. Common situations include:

  • Different medications can have associated food restrictions or sensitivities, and physician-created nutrition plans typically account for these sensitivities. Timing of medication doses can be a critical part of a care plan. Timing can be a concern, especially if a senior is dealing with physical limitations or memory loss.
  • Proper nutrition can be an issue for seniors living alone. Moving around the kitchen and lifting pots and pans may be more challenging than it once was, and as a result, healthier home-cooked meals are difficult. Instead, those meals may be substituted with fast, packaged, or less-calorie meals. The elderly need to consume enough calories and the proper nutrients to avoid obesity, excessive weight loss, and dehydration.

Whether seeking help following a special diet or looking for companionship in the kitchen, our caregivers can provide the necessary assistance for wholesome at-home meals. Our goal is to make mealtime both healthy and enjoyable.
