The Independent Living and Specialty Services Provided by Comfort Keepers®
Comfort Keepers® is the leading provider of in-home care offering customized services to meet the unique needs of you and your loved ones. These specialty services are provided by our high quality caregivers, whom we call Comfort Keepers, who help to promote your greatest quality of life.
In-Home Assistance and Care Services
Conversation and Companionship
Comfort Keepers are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of the individuals we visit.
Comfort Keepers 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.
Comfort Keepers prepare hot, delicious and nutritious meals. Either sit back and relax until it’s ready or our Comfort Keepers can encourage other clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many individuals do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal; therefore, this service helps them get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
Concierge Services/Grocery Shopping/Errands
Comfort Keepers shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the dry cleaners. 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.
Home Hair Stylist/Grooming Guidance
Comfort Keepers assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other grooming tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance. Comfort Keepers also offers a Home Hair Stylist to visit clients in the comfort and convenience of their own home.
Comfort Keepers provides transportation to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Getting individuals out and about is good for their mind, body and spirit—and an integral part of Comfort Keepers’ Interactive Caregiving™.
Comfort Keepers can assist in ensuring you or your loved ones are on schedule with your appointments and make sure your voice is heard. We can arrange all of your appointments, make sure you are there on time and ask any important questions to keep your health and safety a priority.
Home Maintenance and Repairs
Comfort Keepers assist clients with installing grab bars, constructing ramps or dealing with plumbing or electrical issues. Comfort Keepers provides trusted, quality tradespeople to get the job done right. Comfort Keepers also offer services such as snow removal in the winter and gardening and lawn maintenance in the summer.
Personal Care and Nursing Services
Home Foot Care/Pedicures
Comfort Keepers offers basic and advanced foot care right in the client’s home. Our specially trained Foot Care Nurses assist with the health and appearance of your feet and are able to assist individuals with diabetes or thin blood. Also, for other individuals not looking to travel to a nail salon, Comfort Keepers offers individuals the convenience of home pedicures.
Comfort Keepers can administer medications or 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. We also offer a wireless automatic medication dispenser in our line of monitored Safety Choice products.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Comfort Keepers compassionately and sensitively care for individuals, helping them maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with the activities of daily living. Through this caring approach Comfort Keepers help to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Bathing, Grooming and Hygiene
Comfort Keepers help clients look and feel their best. These services enhance clients’ mental as well as physical well-being, helping them feel positive about their appearance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin, but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation and stimulate circulation.
Comfort Keepers assist clients as needed with mobility to help them maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. Being able to get out and about offers both physical and mental health benefits to individuals. 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
Comfort Keepers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture position to promote health and safety and proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination.
Feeding and Special Diet
For a number of reasons, individuals may need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Comfort Keepers understand this and make the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time.
In addition, Comfort Keepers help make certain that our clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. In general Comfort Keepers 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.
