Interactive Caregiving Can Make a Difference in the Life of a Senior in Spokane, WA
Learn about Comfort Keepers unique approach to care
When providing senior care, it is easy for a caregiver to become engrossed in the routine chores of the day. Tasks include as preparing nutritious meals, responding to pleas for assistance, managing medicines, and cleaning However, at Comfort Keepers, we understand that it takes more than task-oriented duties to keep elders lively, active, and healthy.
Being active, feeling connected with others, and feeling healthy are all important components in a senior's well-being. When the primary caregiver is providing care to a senior loved one, it is critical to remember that the care should be completely tailored to their specific needs. This enables you to concentrate on the "whole person" in order to sustain activity and involvement in life.
Our Interactive Caregiving philosophy is centered on caring for the whole person. This concept is a holistic approach that takes into account the mind, body, soul, and overall well-being. Comfort Keepers spends every moment with them to help them keep a joyful, independent life at home, rather than just doing standard day-to-day activities. We support customers' entire health and well-being by connecting with them physically, mentally, and socially.
Seniors who participate in physical and mental activities have a more positive attitude on life, greater health, and improved cognitive performance. Here are a few examples:
- Active brains encourage independence, improved mental and physical health, happiness, and living longer lives
- Physical activity helps to preserve muscular and bone strength, promotes independence, and can reduce or postpone the effects of aging
- Proper nutrition gives you energy, both physically and psychologically
- Safe living environments not only serve to reduce accidents and disease, but they also aid to promote rapid reactions when either occurs
Our caregivers at Comfort Keepers engage in physical exercises with elderly loved ones. When all of these activities are done together, they form a link between the caregiver and the client. Among these activities are:
- Clients can keep strong muscles and bones by walking or riding bikes
- To promote healthy mental stimulation, play games or solve puzzles
- Spending time together reminiscing on memories can help the person you care about feel less alienated
- Being fed by preparing and eating meals together, which promotes greater sociability
