How Seniors Can Sleep More Soundly
If your loved one is having trouble sleeping, there are steps they can take to start to improve their sleep.
Comfort Keepers can help. If your loved one is having trouble sleeping, a Comfort Keepers senior home care provider can help them stick to a schedule and keep healthy habits. Our caregivers can provide wellness support, remind clients to take medication, provide transportation to scheduled appointments, and support physician-prescribed exercise regimens and diets. As part of an individualized care plan, caregivers can let a senior’s care team know if there are changes in behavior or physical characteristics. Our goal is to see that clients have the means to find the joy and happiness in each day, regardless of age or acuity.
