As we get older, senior personal care needs may become more difficult for us to tend to. The prospect of going to a nursing home or assisted living facility can be daunting. ComForCare is pleased to offer seniors in the Burlington, Reading and Winchester area a much more desirable home care alternative that will allow patients to receive the senior personal care service that they need, while enjoying the comfort of home.
Before setting up a senior personal care plan, ComForCare will send a qualified nurse to the patient’s home to assess the patient’s condition and address any questions or concerns that the patient and their close family may have. After this initial meeting, ComForCare will select a caregiver by personality attributes that may work well with the patient’s personality. The caregiver will meet with the patient and his or her family to formulate a senior personal care plan that works with the patient’s needs. This senior personal care plan is not set in stone, but is periodically reviewed for effectiveness and patient satisfaction.
Senior Hygiene Care
Seniors may need assistance with daily hygiene care such as bathing and grooming. This can be uncomfortable for family members and the patient. Caregivers are compassionate and professional, and will do their best to reassure patients when taking care of senior hygiene care needs. Having a caregiver assist with these types of senior personal care needs is often a relief for patients and family members.
With nearly one out of every eight elder Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, the landscape of Alzheimer’s care is changing. ComForCare is vigilant about implementing techniques that have shown to be effective in helping seniors to restore cognitive skills and improve memory. One program that is gaining popularity uses music from specific eras in the patient’s life to trigger fond memories. Caregivers may work with the patient’s family to select music that may have deeper meaning to patients. Some brain games have also shown to have some impact on improving the condition of Alzheimer’s patients and limiting destructive behaviors and moods.
ComForCare in the Woburn area is pleased to have the opportunity to provide live-in or round-the-clock home care for patients that are in need of constant supervision. Live-in caregivers may assist with pain management, mobility needs, and other senior personal care needs. Patients and their family members can enjoy peace of mind knowing that senior care needs are in the hands of trusted professionals.
