Senior In-Home Care | November 13, 2023
Senior In-Home Care | Receiving care for oneself or a loved one is a significant transition. It’s simple with Comfort Keepers®. Our step-by-step process enables you and your loved one to communicate expectations, make plans, and feel confident about your care choices.
November is #NationalHomecareAndHospiceMonth and #NationalHospiceAndPalliativeCareMonth and Comfort Keepers Victoria in British Columbia can offer Seniors and their families information and support about Senior In-Home Care.
Each person’s demands are taken into account when providing home care services. We emphasize the mind, the spirit, and the body. Instead of doing things for your loved one, your Comfort Keeper will interact with them. Every Comfort Keeper caregiver works to uplift the human spirit and make life more enjoyable for their clientele.
Comfort Keepers Home Care offers an easy, transparent process to starting the in-home care journey for you and your loved one in Victoria, BC and the surrounding areas.5 Signs It’s Time for Senior Care
The First Call: During this contact, your care coordinator will first inquire about the care requirements and living conditions of your loved one. They will help you navigate these initial stages even if you are unsure of what to do or what assistance you require.
Care Consultation: Now is the moment to ask questions so that everyone may feel at ease. After responding to your preliminary inquiries, we arrange a Care Consultation over the phone, through video, or in person.
According to Comfort Keepers, in-home care enhances quality of life and supports seniors in continuing their favorite pastimes. Because your loved one’s needs may differ, our care coordinators get to know them.
The topic of this casual conversation will be how they manage their daily lives and any areas where they might need assistance, such as companionship, personal care, or diet. Your Care Coordinator will enquire about preferences, pastimes, and care requirements to match elders with caregivers. Our compassionate Comfort Keepers give our clients the protection and assurance they need to live at home.
Creating the Plan of Care: Care provided at home is customized to each client’s unique emotional, physical, and social needs. Based on a client’s preferences, dislikes, interests, skills, and limitations, we create a care plan and pair them with caregivers.
The Plan of Care may include support for duties like meal preparation and nutrition, laundry and light housekeeping, medication reminders, personal care and grooming reminders and assistance, mental health, and well-being companionship, using technology like computers or smartphones, and transportation to appointments, errands, and grocery shopping, among other things that uplift the spirit, bring joy, or improve seniors’ lives.
Regardless of age or degree of care, our services put a strong emphasis on physical requirements and general wellness to give everyone who needs care the best life possible. As care requirements change, we stand ready to adjust the plan of care.
Additionally, your care coordinator will inspect the house and offer safety advice.
The initial visit will be explained by your Care Coordinator over the phone as well as your Comfort Keeper. On the first visit, family members can get to know their loved one’s Comfort Keeper.
Following introductions and a discussion of the care plan, everyone should unwind and get to know one another. Here is where your loved one and their Comfort Keeper begin to develop trust.
The First Visit: People frequently ask what tasks the caregiver will complete each day or during their initial visit. The elderly can be reluctant to seek assistance. Everyone is at ease thanks to the plan of care because they know what to expect.
Our Comfort Keepers provide interactive caregiving—they work with your loved one, not for them. Seniors maintain their engagement and fulfillment by daily exploring new interests and cultivating genuine connections. Your Comfort Keeper can upload pictures and messages to the family website so you can be at ease.
Post-Visit Follow-Up: After your Comfort Keeper’s initial visit, your Care Coordinator will call. They will ask how it went, how you and your family got along with the Comfort Keeper, and whether any quick adjustments are required to make future visits better.
Everyone is free to honestly evaluate the Plan of Care and ask inquiries after meeting their Comfort Keeper.
Communication with clients and family comes first. We are always available to talk about problems.
Care Review: The needs of our clients for in-home care vary. Every three to six months, or more frequently as necessary, your care coordinator will review the care plan. Your Comfort Keeper is used in this technique. They keep an eye out for adjustments to care that could be necessary. We make sure that you or a senior loved one receives first-rate care, maintains their independence, and, most importantly, keeps enjoying life because happiness promotes better health and lifts the spirit of everyone.
