Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Comfort Keepers helps clients look and feel their best. These services enhance clients’ mental as well as physical well-being, helping them feel positive about their appearance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation and stimulate circulation.
Comfort Keepers Cambridge home care services for seniors assist clients as needed with mobility to help them maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. Being able to get out and about offers both physical and mental health benefits to seniors. Physical health benefits of activity include increased stamina and energy, a strengthened heart, lower blood pressure, and improved digestion and sleep. In addition, activity improves mood, releases stress, and increases mental alertness.
Transferring and Positioning
Comfort Keepers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety and proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Comfort Keepers compassionately and sensitively provide care services for seniors and other adults, helping them maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with the activities of daily living. Through this caring approach Comfort Keepers help to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and the need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
For a number of reasons, adults may need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Comfort Keepers understand this and make the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time.
In addition, Comfort Keepers help make certain that seniors and other clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. In general Comfort Keepers enable clients to eat a well-balanced diet that provides the energy needed for active living and nutrients for disease prevention, healing, and healthful living.
Home Companionship and Care Services
Conversation and Companionship
Comfort Keepers in Cambridge are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness, and quality of life of seniors.
Comfort Keepers prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps seniors get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.

Clients may choose to stay home or help with shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers will use any coupons provided.
Comfort Keepers provides transportation to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Getting seniors out and about is good for their mind, body, and spirit—and an integral part of Comfort Keepers’ Interactive Caregiving™.
