In Home Care from Comfort Keepers of Green Bay & Surrounding Communities of Wisconsin
In Home Care for Your Loved One in Green Bay and Fox Cities.
Recently, the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP released the results of a research study on family caregivers. According to the research, 32 percent of family caregivers spend approximately a decade providing care for a loved one for a minimum of 21 hours a week, and more often, an average of more than 62 hours a week. Not surprisingly, almost half of these higher-hour caregivers report excessive levels of emotional stress.
Fortunately, Comfort Keepers® is here to help families in the Green Bay and Fox Cities, Wisconsin areas manage those stresses more effectively. Our in home care services are designed to meet the physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of your loved one.
What Services Are Provided with In Home Care?
A Comfort Keeper® can provide supportive services to help with either short-term or long-term in home care needs. Whether you’re looking for someone to supplement the care you are already providing for a loved one, or a reliable resource to manage 24 hour-a-day care to give you full-time peace of mind, Comfort Keepers® Green Bay and Fox Cities offers a full range of in-home personal care and companionship services to enable your loved one to continue living at home.
For many aging adults, the inability to manage everyday tasks like bathing, grooming, and toileting results in embarrassment and a tendency to neglect themselves. Comfort Keepers are trained to skillfully handle such personal care needs, helping to reduce the discomfort your loved one may feel. In turn, this helps your loved one feel more positive about his or her appearance, while also maintaining healthy skin, stimulating circulation, and providing relaxation.
An active lifestyle also plays an important role in overall health and a sense of well-being. Comfort Keepers provide the right level of mobility assistance to suit your loved one’s age, abilities, and health considerations. From accompanying your loved one on a short walk, to encouraging rehabilitative exercises recommended by your loved one’s healthcare specialist, Comfort Keepers designs care plans to address those needs.
Health considerations often mean that your loved one needs assistance with eating, or must follow prescribed diets to better manage medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes. In addition to helping with meal preparation, Comfort Keepers work to make mealtimes less stressful and more enjoyable, while at the same time helping to keep your loved one on track with dietary restrictions.
Staying social improves the quality of life for aging adults, but when restricted to in home care, opportunities for social contact are reduced. Comfort Keepers offer companionship–sharing meals, having discussions or looking through photo albums–to keep your loved one engaged.
The daily chores that seemed so easy are much more challenging as your loved one ages. Comfort Keepers can help with laundry, light housekeeping, or even run errands–alone or accompanied by your loved one. In addition, Comfort Keepers can provide incidental transportation to doctor’s visits, hairdresser appointments, or other outside activities.
Best of all, because Comfort Keepers Green Bay and Fox Cities is here to help with these in-home needs, family caregivers can receive the breaks they need, alleviating some of the pressure felt so keenly by many. With the security that comes from knowing your loved one is receiving compassionate care when you aren’t there, you can relax and enjoy the time you spend with your loved one even more.
