Senior Personal Care In Portage, IN
ComForcare is pleased to offer seniors in the Valparaiso, La Porte, Hobart, Michigan City and Hebron area of Indiana area superior assistance with senior personal home care needs. Senior personal care assistance can help seniors “age in place,” instead of having to seek the services of a nursing home. This is often preferred and can also be more cost-effective for clients.
Transition of Care
In many cases, seniors require assistance with personal care needs following release from medical facilities. Family members may struggle to understand the best way to arrange the home and care for their loved one following a surgery or bout of illness. Our caregivers have professional training for these situations and can provide family members with welcome assistance both during and after the transition of care.
Personal Hygiene Assistance
Seniors that have difficulty taking care of personal hygiene needs may suffer embarrassment when asking family members for help. Our senior personal care associates are compassionate as well as practiced at assisting with these types of needs. Whether clients need help with bathing, dressing, or making sure that all necessary hygienic supplies are on hand, our caregivers are there for support and aid.
Many seniors suffer from incontinence due to medical conditions or injuries. Having an incontinence care plan in place is essential for good health, and can make all the difference in a client’s attitude and perspective. ComForcare caregivers know this, and are diligent about taking care of these needs so that seniors are always clean and comfortable. Reducing embarrassing accidents by having a schedule in place can allow seniors to participate in more activities with less stress.
As part of our dementia care programs, our caregivers provide emotional support and attempt to increase the frequency of positive experiences for clients. Senior personal care professionals will also assess the home and make suggestions or changes as needed to improve the safety of the home. If desired, caregivers can help to answer questions and educate close family on dementia best practices that may minimize the incidence of troubling behaviors and reduce hazards.
