Seniors in the Brentwood, Oakley, Tracy and Discovery Bay area of California may benefit from receiving senior personal care assistance from ComForcare. Caregivers can offer help with many different types of tasks, depending on the particular needs of the patient. Receiving in-home assistance may be just what seniors need to remain living at home instead of seeking care from senior care facilities.
Senior Care Plans
Some seniors may have more intensive needs that require live-in care, while others may benefit more from visits that are scheduled a few times a week. No matter the degree of assistance that patients require, our caregivers will be able to create a senior personal care plan that is right for both the patient and any concerned family members. ComForcare staff will also be available for questions or assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to make sure that patients receive the care they need when it is needed most.
One of the most difficult personal needs for patients to ask family for help with is incontinence care. Patients that are bedridden need an incontinence care plan in place to be kept comfortable and healthy. Patients that are still active may be able to participate in more outings and activities with a caregiver that has an incontinence care plan in place and is diligent about executing it.
Alzheimer’s Care Services
ComForcare takes pride in being able to offer Alzheimer’s care services that are superior to many Alzheimer’s programs. Caregivers receive extensive training on providing senior personal care services for patients that have Alzheimer’s disease. Caregivers understand how to decrease risk factors such as fall hazards for patients by reorganizing the home. Caregivers also seek to provide activities that will challenge and strengthen patients’ cognitive abilities while creating fond memories.
Senior personal care professionals in the Oakley, Brentwood, Discovery Bay and Tracy area delight in offering companionship care for patients. Having a caring companion can have a huge impact on a patient’s emotional and even physical health.
