Seniors in the Wayne and Pompton Plains areas of New Jersey now have access to the high quality home care available from ComForCare. In-home care allows seniors greater freedom than most other types of senior assistance and ComForCare is the best of the best when it comes to delivering excellent care. We are happy to work with seniors and their loved ones to find out how we can best fulfill all needs.
Activities of Daily Living
Aging and health conditions may make many of the activities of daily living difficult and stressful for seniors. Having family help can ease this stress, but may complicate relationships and cause excess burden on the family. ComForCare caregivers are experts at providing compassionate care in a way that is comforting to seniors, reducing the need for familial assistance and allowing family members to maintain a positive connection.
ComForCare caregivers can provide assistance with activities of daily living, including:
- Toileting and bathing
- Preparing meals
- Running Errands
- Organizing the home
- Scheduling and planning
- Caring for pets and plants
- Cleaning laundry and linens
- Salting driveways
Companionship and Socialization
Caregivers are not only professional home care assistants, they are also reliable companions for seniors. Having someone to play games with, watch movies with, or just sit and chat with can improve the quality of life substantially. For seniors that are able to participate, caregivers may also be willing to provide transportation and assistance to tennis courts, bowling alleys, or other leisurely activities. Caregivers may also help to promote socialization by bringing clients to events for seniors in the Wayne and Pompton Plains areas.
Transportation for Seniors
Transportation can become difficult for seniors that have issues with mobility. Depending on others for rides can inhibit independence and seeking rides from public transit can be difficult and dangerous. Having a caregiver assist with transportation in the Wayne and Pompton Plains areas can increase safety and convenience. Caregivers can provide help with mobility aids and escort seniors to and from locations. When inclement conditions strike, caregivers may also run errands for seniors so that they can relax at home.
Dementia affects cognitive functions, which can be hard for family members to accept while providing assistance. ComForCare caregivers are highly trained to understand the affects of dementia and can answer questions and provide advice for care. Caregivers can also implement daily routines, help reorganize the home to prevent dementia hazards, and provide games that may help to delay some of the cognitive effects of dementia.
