Comfort Keepers® in home care services are dedicated to caring for seniors who are living independently in their own homes. Comfort Keepers provides specially trained caregivers who provide our senior care, ranging from Alzheimer’s and dementia care services, to companionship care and even general household care.
After a certain period of time, it can be unsafe for elderly loved-ones to take on the responsibility of caring for their own homes. Cleaning tools can be too heavy to use safely and chemicals from cleaning solutions could damage sensitive skin. Many places in the house could be too high or too low to reach safely, or lowered eyesight might make cleaning sufficiently too difficult for a senior.
Comfort Keepers senior care services include light housekeeping services to assist seniors in keeping up their household to ensure their safety. Caregivers can help with many chores like vacuuming, dusting, mopping or sweeping the floor, washing and drying dishes, taking out the trash, cleaning up after pets and doing laundry. Comfort Keepers are trained to safely assist the senior with any personal tasks as well. For example, caregivers can assist the senior with walking to or from the bathroom, bathing the senior, helping the senior brush his or her hair or teeth, helping the senior get dressed and help put on shoes.
Light housekeeping services for seniors from Comfort Keepers will certainly come in handy during the holiday season. During a time when friends and family members want to stop by to say hello to the senior, it’s important for the senior to be proud of his or her home, and show everyone how great they are doing. Caregivers are excited to help seniors live safely and happily in their own homes for as long as possible.
There are plenty of ways that Comfort Keepers could dramatically improve the life of your senior, and we can work with you to find the best package of services to fit your needs. See our full range of senior care services, or contact our local office to schedule a free in home care assessment today!
