Homecare Services for Seniors | Tens of millions of seniors are not able to fully care for themselves and require assistance in one or more daily living tasks. Many of these seniors have family members who can support them as family caregivers.
The reasons for support are varied and range from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease to cancer and Parkinson’s. Other seniors face autoimmune disorders, ALS, fibromyalgia, and problems with pain and mobility. In addition to these chronic issues, seniors may face short-term, acute issues that limit their ability as well. For example, surgery or an accident may only have a recovery time of weeks or months, but that is a long time to go without food, water, or even conveniences.
If your senior loved one requires support with one or more daily living tasks, homecare services from Comfort Keepers may be the answer. Even if family caregivers are available, homecare services can provide respite care relief should caregivers need a break. Other times, family caregivers need support, especially as progressive diseases move into their later stages.

In Calgary, Comfort Keepers homecare services also include specialized dementia and Alzheimer’s care, hospital to home transition assistance, end of life care, and even private duty nursing support.
