Making a Difference as a Comfort Keeper
Serving as a caregiver makes immeasurable differences in the life of the person receiving care. There are emotional and spiritual benefits to both people involved in the caregiving relationship. The companionship that is an essential element to all Comfort Keepers relationships increases quality of life and creates strong bonds that go beyond helping around the house. You know you get a sense of fulfillment from helping seniors, but what difference are you really making as a Comfort Keeper?
Independence. Do not underestimate the value that seniors place on retaining the ability to live in their own home with routines and memories that they have built over many decades. Though they need assistance, they can be fiercely independent and count on you to help them achieve this important goal. There is not always a family member available to give the help that seniors need, but you step in and do more than anyone else and become a vital part of their lives.
Companionship. As seniors become less mobile, people move or pass away, and it just becomes easier to stay home, they are at risk of becoming isolated and depressed. This is often a process that happens slowly over time, and by the time they realize they are lonely, they aren’t sure how to fix it. The companionship that is so important in each Comfort Keepers relationship fills this gap. As a Comfort Keeper, you can encourage seniors to reach out to friends and get involved in community activities. Most of all, you offer your own friendship and care, sharing in conversation and activities that are important to them.
Activity. Some people may believe that seniors with caregiver assistance are less active, but Comfort Keepers know that is not the case. Seniors are encouraged to be active physically through assisting with household chores, meal preparation, and enjoying hobbies. Having someone at their side gives many seniors the confidence to more than they were previously doing. Mental activity is also vital to maintaining good mental health. Comfort Keepers join seniors in conversation, games, and activities that keep their brain active for comprehensive good health.
Safety. Comfort Keepers keep seniors safe by monitoring the environment, assisting with mobility, and providing healthy meals for optimal health. This enables seniors to remain independent and enjoy the best possible health. Falls within the home are the most common injuries to seniors, but they can be kept safe with the help of a dedicated Comfort Keeper.
