At Comfort Keepers, preparedness education is a vital part of our in-home senior care program
While living at home is the dream of practically every senior in the Fredericksburg, VA areas, there is going to come a time when they can no longer do so by themselves. At Comfort Keepers, we can provide your loved ones with the finest in-home senior care services, including one of our highly-skilled and knowledgeable caregivers who can provide for your loved one's safety while they are on duty.
The only problem is that unless you arrange for 24/7 caregiver coverage, there will be times when your loved ones are alone. Statistics show that the majority of accidents and sudden onset major medical events tend to occur during these times. Adding to the problem is that, in many instances, the person is unable to reach a telephone to summon help. Being unable to summon help will only make things worse.
This is only one side of the picture; the other side is the house itself. Seniors who need help tend to let the condition of their home start to decay slowly. From clogged gutters to cracks in the pavement, our caregivers can show you what to look for and what needs to be done. We can help with CO and smoke detectors, check furnace filters and make sure the AC is working. Each of these items is a vital part of your loved ones' overall safety.
Helping You and Your Loved One Be Prepared
Here at Comfort Keepers, we believe that helping our clients and their loved ones know what to do in the event of an emergency is very much a key part of our in-home senior care services. From how to cope with a heart attack or stroke until help arrives or what not to do in the event of a bad fall, we can help with training and a wealth of home care safety equipment.
If you would like to learn more about our in-home senior care program, our safety and preparedness training, and how we can develop a custom care plan for your loved ones, contact us online anytime or give us a call at (540) 205-8743. Our agents are available 24/7 to answer your questions and schedule your free in-home consultation with one of our senior advisors.
