What is Non-Medical Care?

Non-medical care is often referred to as “home care” or “personal care.” You may also hear the term ADL, or Activities of Daily Living used in conjunction with these services.

Help with Home Care Tasks

ComForCare non-medical assistance may include help with many of the following home care tasks:
  • Bathing, grooming, dressing
  • Transferring to and from the bed, wheelchair, walker or toilet
  • Walking (fall risk)
  • Medication reminders
  • Transportation and errands
  • Meal preparation and eating
  • Laundry and other light housekeeping
  • Pet care

Assistance with Hygiene Needs

ComForCare caregivers will make sure that your loved one’s hygiene needs are taken care of with compassion and professionalism. Having assistance with hygiene needs can help seniors to stay clean, comfortable, and healthy. This can help seniors to avoid hospital admittance and stay more active and outgoing.

Companionship and Support

ComForCare caregivers provide companionship and support for seniors, which can help seniors to keep a positive mindset. Playing games, watching movies, or just having someone to talk to can make all the difference in the world for seniors that often feel bored and lonely. Caregivers can also help seniors to stay active, encouraging physical activities and social events as seniors’ abilities allow. If seniors are worried or have questions about conditions and illnesses, ComForCare caregivers can help to ease those fears and talk about conditions.

Family Respite

In many cases, family members seek non-medical home care services after trying to do it all for too long. Juggling career responsibilities, relationships, and the needs of an aging loved one is no easy task. ComForCare caregivers can help take care of the needs of elders so that family members are free to take some respite and find a comfortable balance. ComForCare can help family members to restore relationships with their elder loved one, focusing on quality time and making great memories instead of daily needs.

Care in the Comfort of Home

Non-medical care allows seniors to relax and enjoy their beloved homes. Aging in place lets seniors continue to work on their favorite hobbies, delight in the company of their loving spouses and pets, and remain surrounded by their treasured belongings. It is no surprise that many seniors prefer ComForCare’s non-medical care to other types of senior care.
