November is Home Care and Hospice Month, and it’s a time to honor the caregivers and home health aides and other health workers who provide expert care to our nation’s senior population. At Comfort Keepers, our caregivers provide a range of in-home care to support our clients and their families. Explore the options below.
The National Association for Home Care and Hospice have shared a few statistics concerning home care and hospice in the U.S. that highlight the importance of the care we provide:
In-home care is truly an important part of elderly health care in the U.S.
Our caregivers provide a wide variety of in-home care services to our elderly clients. We pride ourselves on providing quality services. These services include:
In-Home Care Services: These services are customized to fit the needs of the clients, and can include bathing, grooming, and hygiene, mobility assistance, transferring and positioning, toileting and incontinence care, feeding and special diet, companionship, food preparation, light cleaning and laundry, errands and grocery shopping, transportation, and medication reminders. This care can be a few hours a week or 24-hours a day.
Respite Care: Family caregivers need a break every now and then to rest and recharge. Our caregivers can provide care for a certain amount of time as needed.
Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care: Our caregivers are trained to offer expert care to dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.
End of Life Care: Our caregivers work closely with hospice providers to ensure that your elderly loved one’s last days are spent at home, as comfortable as possible, and with the focus on family and friends.
Transitioning Care: Oftentimes, our elderly loved ones are sent home from a hospital stay for an injury or illness before they are able to fully care for themselves. This slows healing and increases the chances that your elderly loved one will require hospitalization again. Our caregivers can be there to provide transitioning care with the aim of getting your senior loved one back on their feet and no longer needing a caregiver.
