COVID-19: Precautions You Can Take | It is more important than ever to keep your senior safe during these uncertain times. An in-home caregiver can help to keep your loved one safe by supporting them at home, running errands for them, and even providing virtual care.
Reducing the Risk: Our caregivers know what steps to take to reduce the risk of infectious disease. Between cleaning and using proper personal protective equipment, our caregivers will keep your senior safe and healthy.
Home Remains the Safest Place: Staying away from crowds and groups of people is the best way to lower risk of exposure. Our care at Comfort Keepers Home Care of Calgary, AB allows your loved one to stay in their home while getting the care that they need.
Picking Up Necessities: One way to prevent infection is to avoid packed grocery stores. Our caregivers will run errands for your loved one, which includes picking up groceries or medications, going to the post office, or providing transportation to appointments. We can also help with ordering supplies and necessities online.
Cleaning: Our caregivers follow strict cleaning and hygiene guidelines to keep your loved one healthy. We offer light housekeeping services, including laundry, disinfecting countertops, and vacuuming. Our caregivers practice good hygiene by regularly washing hands and can teach your loved one about the most up-to-date hygiene practices, too.
Staying Social: During a time when family and friends can’t see each other in-person, we turn to alternatives to stay social. Our caregivers enjoy getting to know your loved one and can play games with them or encourage them to take part in their hobbies. We can also help your loved one set up a video chat or phone call with friends and family.
Family Support: Not only do we support seniors, but we support their families too. Whether you want an update on your loved one’s health or have some concerns, we are here to listen and help you out.
Virtual Care: If your loved one is unable to have a caregiver visit in person, we can provide virtual care through video chat and phone calls. This is a great way for us to check in with your loved one, and for them to get some social interaction.
Interactive Caregiving: At Comfort Keepers, we believe in Interactive Caregiving. This means that we work with our senior clients, not for them. We encourage your loved one to be active in their care and continue to keep a daily schedule, even on days that we can’t be physically with them.
