Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming and Hygiene
We love help clients look and feel their best. These services not only enhance our client’s mental and physical well-being, but help them feel positive about their appearance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin, but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation.
We can assist clients as needed with mobility to help them maintain as active of 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
Our personal support workers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety as well as proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure on areas of the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our team members compassionately and sensitively care 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 to our personal home care services, Comfort Keepers help to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
For a number of reasons, adults may need help feeding themselves, and this loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Our team understands this, which is why we 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, we 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.
Conversation and Companionship
Our compassionate team members are available to provide clients company and engage with them in order to create moments that last. Some of these instances include having a client pitch in with tasks such as laundry or housekeeping, or simply sitting down to share a meal together or going on a walk. Care such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness, and quality of life in seniors.
We 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.
These services can be done in either the client’s home or the Laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Comfort Keepers involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Our light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning easily accessed interior windows. Please be advised that our personal home care services do not include outdoor maintenance.
Our personal support workers will shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers will use any coupons provided.
All of our staff members are able to provide 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™.

Although our team members cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. Comfort Keepers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
Our personal home care services include assistance with washing and combing hair and other grooming tasks to enable clients to feel good about their appearance.
We are able to tailor care to each client’s needs and budget—from a few hours a week to full-time care.
