Personal Care for Seniors
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Comfort Keepers® services can help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our Comfort Keepers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. Comfort Keepers can also accompany the client on a short walk and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Comfort Keepers in-home caregivers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our Comfort Keepers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, Comfort Keepers help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. In-home care services are here to help. Our Comfort Keepers understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
In-Home Care for Seniors & Companionship
Conversation and Companionship
Our Comfort Keepers provide clients with companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this as part of senior care we provide is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. As part of our care, Comfort Keepers in-home care can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our Comfort Keepers in-home care will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our home care for seniors includes light housekeeping services that cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Please be advised that Comfort Keepers does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Comfort Keepers will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers will use any coupons provided.
Our Comfort Keepers can provide incidental transportation for clients as part of our care services, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body and spirit.
Although Comfort Keepers in-home care cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our Comfort Keepers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.
24 Hour Home Care
Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers can provide in-home care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, 24 hour home care. Through our care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. Our 24-hour care service offers clients and their families full-time in the peace of mind.
