Comfort Keepers®, providers of in-home senior care services, are passionate about creating safe and happy environments to help preserve the independence of seniors who are living in their own homes. Home care services range from Alzheimer’s and dementia care to helping with light housework and even providing companionship care.
Having a companion around the home for even a few hours a week can drastically improve the lives of those who had been struggling to live alone most of the time. Knowing they are going to have a visitor gives seniors something to look forward to and also gives them a friendly pair of helping hands around the home.
Comfort Keeper’s uniquely designed Interactive Caregiving™ techniques create a real and lasting relationship between the senior and caregiver. When someone is in the senior’s home on a regular basis, it’s important for the senior to trust the caregiver and genuinely enjoy the company to get the most out of Comfort Keepers in-home care service.
The holidays are an especially busy time of year, and Comfort Keepers can use that time to help the senior in the best way possible while building up their relationship through the Interactive Caregiving approach to home care. The senior and caregiver can spend time putting up holiday decorations together and making the home beautiful.
Caregivers can also transport seniors to the store to do some holiday shopping. If the senior needs help picking out gifts for loved ones, the caregiver can help make choices and even help the senior wrap presents. Another fun activity caregivers and seniors can do together is cook a holiday meal. When they spend time together working towards a common goal and creating something together, they learn more about each other’s personalities, too.
Finally, caregivers can help seniors write and send out holiday cards to friends and family members to round out a whole season of care. If the senior has difficulty writing because of arthritis or joint pain, the caregiver can write cards to people as dictated by the senior. The senior is still able to do everything he or she used to do but with an extra pair of hands from Comfort Keepers!
