Conversation and Companionship
Studies show that staying social and engaged increases seniors' quality of life and prevents depression and cognitive decline. Our Care Providers can provide clients with friendly company, conversation, and mealtime companionship.
Eating nutritious meals can make health issues easier to manage, help prevent future health problems, help increase energy levels, and keep weight in check.For seniors who have trouble with meal preparation, our Care Providers can cook hot, delicious, wholesome meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Preparing food together can make mealtime a more social and enjoyable experience.
Clean laundry is a must, but for some seniors this chore can be too physically demanding to do alone. Our Care Providers can take care of all laundry needs, either in the client's home or at a nearby laundromat. Services include washing, drying, ironing, and putting laundry away. Our Care Providers work with clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Housekeeping help can prolong a senior's ability to live independently at home.Care Providers' light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. Comfort Keepers does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
Illness, weakness, and an inability to drive are just a few factors keeping seniors from working through an ordinary to-do list. Having help with shopping and errands keeps seniors engaged and improves quality of life. Our Care Providers can shop for groceries at their clients' preferred stores and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or stopping at the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along for the ride as a way to stay active and engaged.
One way to help prevent the social isolation, loneliness, and depression common in seniors is to simply get out and about. If driving isn't an option, Our Care Providers provides transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, meeting a friend for lunch, or wherever else a client wants to go. Being out and about benefits a senior's mind, body, and spirit and is an integral part of our Interactive Caregiving program.
Although our Care Providers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their medication as prescribed. Care Providers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose.
Paying special attention to grooming can help a senior feel and look better. As a person ages, grooming can sometimes present physical challenges. Our Care Providers can assist clients with shampooing, shaving, hair combing and styling, and other grooming needs so seniors can look and feel their best.
