Interactive Caregiving Can Make a Difference in the Life of a Senior

Comfort Keepers In-Home Care in Greenfield, Wisconsin.

A Senior's Life in Greenfield, WI Can Be Improved Through Interactive Caregiving

It is easy for a caregiver to become engaged in the boring duties of the day when providing senior care. Preparing nutritious meals, responding to requests for assistance, managing medicines, and cleaning are all tasks. However, at Comfort Keepers, we understand that keeping the elderly active, engaged, and healthy requires more than task-oriented responsibilities.

Being physically active, socially involved, and physically fit are all key facets of a senior's well-being. It is crucial to remember that when a senior loved one is being cared for by a primary caregiver, the care should be entirely personalized to their unique needs. This allows you to focus on the "whole person" while remaining active and engaged in life.

Our Interactive Caregiving concept is based on considering the individual as a whole. This is a comprehensive approach that considers the mind, body, soul, and general well-being. Instead of performing regular daily tasks, our caregivers spend every moment with them to assist them in living a joyful, independent life at home. We contribute to our clients' overall health and well-being by connecting with them on a physical, psychological, and social level.

Seniors who engage in physical and mental activities have a more positive attitude about life, greater health, and cognitive capacities. Here are a couple such examples:

  • Brain exercise promotes self-sufficiency, better mental and physical health, happiness, and the ability to live longer lives
  • Physical activity improves muscle and bone strength, increases independence, and can delay or minimize the effects of aging
  • Proper nutrition provides both physical and mental vigor
  • Safe living conditions not only help to reduce accidents and disease, but they also encourage quick responses when either occurs.

Caregivers engage in physical activities with their elderly patients. When all of these acts occur together, they build a bond between the caregiver and the client. Among the activities are:

  • Walking or riding bikes can help clients maintain strong muscles and bones
  • To stimulate your brain, play games or solve puzzles
  • Spending time together recalling memories can help a loved one feel less alone
  • Feeding oneself by making and sharing meals with others, which promotes socialization
