- We provide support with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and laundry.
- We accompany your loved one to appointments, go grocery shopping, and pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy.
- We encourage participation in enjoyable activities to stimulate your loved one physically, mentally, and socially, like strolling in a garden, building puzzles, or reminiscing over photos.
Having a Comfort Keeper helps ensure your loved one’s safety, too. We can assess your loved one’s surroundings to identify trip hazards, and keep a watchful eye while assisting around the house to make certain that food isn’t forgotten on a hot stovetop.
What is Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
Offering Respite for Family Caregivers
Comfort Keepers is also here to support family caregivers in the Sheboygan and Fond du Lac area. We understand how difficult it is to juggle the desire to provide dementia care for your loved one with the demands of having your own family and work responsibilities. In fact, the Alzheimer’s Association reports that the toll of caregiving resulted in $9.7 billion in healthcare costs for family caregivers in 2014 alone. When you run yourself down caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, you do yourself and your loved one a disservice. Having a Comfort Keeper you can rely on for respite care enables you to take a few hours every day to handle your own needs, or spend an entire weekend away to recuperate, while knowing your loved one is in good hands.
