Tailor services to meet the unique needs of your loved one
Family caregivers are often the ones that are responsible for the routine assistance given to many elderly people. They drive to appointments, clean the house, cook meals and many other things that help an aging loved one remain independent. For many families, there comes a time when some help is needed. Perhaps your elder had surgery and needs skilled non-medical assistance or their condition is getting worse and requiring more hours from you than you can make time for.
Whether aging parents or grandparents, a spouse or a family friend, Comfort Keepers will provide your loved one with the same kind of compassionate care that you would love to give on your own. We have a long list of elder home care service options available, able to tailor them to where they are needed most. Additionally, aides work the hours that you need. This means that they can be there around the clock if needed or just now and then for tasks that you cannot do on your own.
Here are just some of the ways that Comfort Keepers can help:
- Bathing, Grooming, and Dressing
- Healthy Meal Preparation and Planning
- Mobility and Positioning Assistance
- Medication Reminders
- Compassionate Companionship
Specialized Home Care that Supports Seniors in All of the Ways They Need
Beyond the basic services, we also are available to provide you with specialized home care including respite services, end of life care and assistance for Alzheimer’s or dementia patients. Since you can choose the types of service you need, you are able to tailor the tasks of your loved one’s caregiver to meet the gaps in daily, physical or memory support that you feel are not currently being met.
Because home care aides are also, committed to providing social wellness support, they often encourage day outings and things that will be engaging for their senior. Activities, events and classes are all wonderful ways for the elderly to build friendships and stay active in their community. With two great options locally for a long list of activities for seniors, there is no need to worry about them finding something that they like and want to do. First, there is the Municipality of Meaford itself, which is host to a robust senior program and event schedule that your family member can get involved with in order to be more active and enhance their social life. Then, for more options, there is the Keeene Senior Center as well.
A place to go is just half the solution for some. Since many seniors are no longer able to drive, transportation is included with our home care services. Caregivers are licensed and know their way around Meaford, with insight on all of the best spots for senior citizens. Of course, they are available to assist with transportation on errands, to pick up medications or to doctor’s appointments as well. Beyond that, aides remain with your loved one the entire time to help with any challenges that may be present when in public such as toileting or support for social anxiety. They can also sit in on doctor’s visits, taking notes on care or to help with understanding information.
