If you are a family caregiver for a loved one who has difficulty moving around but wants to age in place, engaging with Comfort Keepers home care services may be the ideal choice to ensure mom or dad’s safety and quality of life. We can assist with transferring and positioning, allowing your loved one to move securely from one section of the home to another while maintaining their preferred daily routine.

To keep as healthy as possible and preserve a higher level of independence, seniors must be able to walk freely throughout their home. Your loved one will need to get from bed to the bathroom at least once a day. Then they might want to cook a meal or lounge on the couch in the living room to watch their favorite show. Transferring services enable your mother or father to maintain their daily routine and relocate from one location to another with ease.

Other advantages of hiring a professional senior home care helper to help with transferring include:

  • Less likely to fall and get injured
  • Caregivers can make everyday tasks easier such as assistance with bathing and getting out of bed
  • Provides sense of comfort in having a caring, trustworthy companion to help with chores and with whom they can socialize

Bedsores are common in elderly people who are confined to a bed or wheelchair for extended periods of time. These are pressure ulcers or pressure sores that arise on parts of the body when the bones are close to the skin. Bedsores can become painful, infectious, and cause other health concerns if not treated or prevented by frequent repositioning. Our home care staff are trained to assist seniors in often repositioning themselves as they lay or sit, reducing the incidence of bedsores. Transferring and positioning are critical components of senior care services for handicapped seniors who prefer to remain at home rather than go to assisted living. Our mission is to help elders attain the highest quality of life possible, regardless of chronic diseases or physical limitations, by providing services such as transferring, incontinence care, and personal care.
