Whether help is needed just a few hours a week or around the clock, ComForcare can provide the care you need so that your loved one can continue living at home independently.
In addition to the personal care, housekeeping and transportation assistance that make life easier, having a caregiver in the home also provides your loved one with companionship.
Everyone needs social interaction, but seniors are especially vulnerable to feelings of isolation, loneliness and depression if they spend long periods of time alone.
Your loved one's caregiver will be there to listen and converse when he or she wants to reminisce about the past, talk about grandchildren or discuss current events. If your loved one has limited mobility or is unable to drive, the caregiver can provide transportation and escort to social events, entertainment venues, club meetings or visits with family or friends.
Whether it is help getting dressed or preparing a meal, taking a walk or playing a game of cards, caregiver assistance and companionship will enhance your loved one's health and happiness.
Because of the one-on-one time caregivers spend with clients on a regular basis, they become familiar with clients' behaviors and habits. Often, they are the first to notice if there is a change in a client that may signal a need for further care or resources.
ComForcare is also a member of the Alzheimer's Association's Alzheimer's Early Detection Alliance and trains its caregivers on the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's. If a caregiver suspects a client may be showing signs of Alzheimer's disease, the family will be notified so that the client can receive prompt medical attention.
