Ohio cares about their elders, offering discounted housing for people over age 55 and free events for seniors like the “Older Adult Extravaganza” in the Cambridge area. Now seniors in the South Dayton, Kettering, Centerville, Miamisburg, Beavercreek area of Ohio have even more personalized care available in the form of ComForcare home care services. ComForcare is a name you can count on to stand for friendly, personal, and dependable home care.
Affordable Home Care
Seniors are often concerned about the expense and the living conditions of nursing homes when age or infirmity requires them to seek assistance. Home care services are a much more comfortable solution to this dilemma. Home care services are less expensive than the costs associated with a nursing home, and patients can stay in the environment that they are already accustomed to.
Patients that have Alzheimer’s disease may benefit uniquely from the opportunity to stay in familiar surroundings. Alzheimer’s patients may have difficulty adapting to new surroundings due to the cognitive decline that is associated with the disease and may become more easily frustrated. This frustration can lead to behaviors such as wandering to try to get “home”, fits of anger or crying, and sometimes even injuries from violent episodes. ComForcare caregivers not only help Alzheimer’s patients with their home care needs, they also help initiate programs that may help Alzheimer’s patients to regain some cognitive functions and are focused on creating happy occasions and memories.
Transportation of Seniors
ComForcare home care associates will also provide transportation for seniors in the Miamisburg, South Dayton, Kettering, Beavercreek, and Centerville area. Seniors that no longer drive may often feel cooped up in their homes, and may have difficulty with errands such as grocery shopping. Caregivers are happy to transport patients to run errands, go on outings, and just get out of the house for a while. Caregivers may also be able to assist patients that need extra help due to mobility issues.
ComForcare home care providers are also compassionate and are pleased to be able to offer senior companionship after home care tasks are finished. Patients may be home alone often, or they may just enjoy having a companion that is not a family member to share stories, ideas, and interests with. Senior companionship also means that patients have someone to play games with and that can read to them or take in movies with them to just relax and enjoy life.
