Now providing Quarantine Care for seniors newly entering a facility
An Update from our President on COVID-19 Precautions – Peter Drutz, Comfort Keepers Canada
You likely have heard a lot of information in the news about the Novel Coronavirus, called COVID-19, in recent days as the growth of this virus rises in Canada and around the world. As a company dedicated to compassionate and healthy care, we have been actively monitoring the progression of the virus and guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Comfort Keepers Toronto provides home care for the City of Toronto and the surrounding regions of Durham, York, Peel, and Halton. With offices all over the country, we provide care to thousands of Canadians each year.
Providing home care can be very draining and taxing on family caretakers, especially children or grandchildren with full-time jobs and families of their own.
We look forward to helping your senior loved ones be the best they can be. With in-home assisted living as a lifestyle choice they can start a new, fresh take on daily living while remaining in the comfort and familiarity of home.
Our philosophy is to elevate the human spirit and our caregivers will be there every step of the way to ensure your loved one has a better quality of life.
Comfort Keepers of Toronto, Ontario’s breadth of senior care services includes senior companionship and personal care services, light housekeeping and meal preparation, to more specialized services for those with dementia and end of life care needs. We assist with transportation to and from doctor’s appointments, the grocery store, and the pharmacy. If more around the clock care is needed, Comfort Keepers Toronto does provide 24-hour or Live-In services. For those, especially Veterans, we provide assistance with completing the necessary paperwork for subsidized home care. Our office also has Vision Loss Services. We partnered with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind to provide specially trained care assistants who help seniors and the elderly with vision loss, helping to maintain their independence and remain in their homes.
You’ll be happy to know that we’re literally taking steps to improve Alzheimer’s care. Our devoted employees recently participated in the Walk for Alzheimer’s to benefit our local Alzheimer Society of York Region. Check out how our wonderful team supported the cause here.
Everyone has different reasons to select care for their loved ones. The key is recognizing when to introduce care and how to select the right care provider. Consider these 20 questions that can help you make the decision on whether you should consider care at home.
We use a four pronged approach to senior care called Interactive Caregiving®. This model of elderly care helps increase seniors’ sense of well-being and independence by focusing on Senior Mind, Senior Body, Senior Nutrition, and Senior Safety. When a child or grandchild of an elderly or senior loved one approaches us, it is usually as a result of a fall, malnutrition, or medication mismanagement. By focusing on these four areas of mind, body, nutrition, and safety, we are addressing the main reasons a senior or elderly person needs home senior care in the first place. It is our goal to return your elderly loved one back to a more self-sufficient way of life.
As part of the Senior Nutrition aspect of Interactive Caregiving®, we focus on senior diet and nutrition through the Nourish Senior Life Program®. The Nourish Senior Life Program® creates awareness towards the importance of a healthy diet for those 65 and older, and educates the public about malnutrition in seniors as well as providing screening for malnutrition. A proper diet helps seniors preserve their independence, and avoid in home care.
It is through our Interactive Caregiving approach and the Nourish Senior Life Program® that Comfort Keepers of Toronto provides top-notch home health care for seniors and the elderly.
