Senior Care in Springfield, PA
As we age, it can become more difficult for seniors living alone to do some of the basic tasks they used to do with ease. Our caregivers can provide help with those tasks. For example, transportation and mobility assistance to and from appointments, meal planning and preparation and medication reminders.
In so many situations, enlisting professional help is a way for seniors in the Springfield area to stay in their own homes and have a safe environment along with peace of mind.
Because most seniors do prefer to remain in their own homes, often on their own, there are certain risks that need to be managed in order for them to remain both independent and safe. The risk of falling can be a real hazard to seniors who live alone, especially those with medical conditions that affect their stability. The risk of falling is even greater in homes with stairs or steps, crowded rooms, and slippery floors.
ComForCare's trained senior care providers will assess our clients’ homes and work with the client and their families to implement fall prevention measures. Our clients gain peace of mind knowing that there are measures in place to help keep them safe.
