Seniors from all walks of life are beginning to see the benefit of receiving home care services as opposed to moving into a nursing home or assisted living facility. Receiving home care services can help seniors remain more independent while staying in the homes that they cherish and have worked hard for. Seniors in the Pittsford, Mendon, and Brighton areas of New York now have access to home care services from ComForCare, one of the most trusted names in the industry.
Activities of Daily Living
ComForCare caregivers can provide assistance with many activities of daily living, including:
- Meal planning and preparation
- Dishes and kitchen cleanup
- Pet care
- Laundry and linen cleaning
- Hygienic needs
- Appointments and correspondence
- Crafting and leisure
- Dusting and vacuuming
- Scheduling yard services for different seasons
- Companionship activities
Transportation assistance can help seniors in the Mendon, Pittsford, and Brighton areas to take a welcome break from the confines of home in order to run errands or participate in enjoyable activities. Caregivers can help seniors visit restaurants, attend events in the area, shop, or go to medical appointments. Having assistance can help seniors to avoid slips and falls, while providing a companion to make excursions more pleasant.
The Pittsford, Brighton, and Mendon areas are known for being a great place to raise a family due to the low cost of living, high rated education, and high employment rate. While this makes an area more pleasant for retirement, it also means that many family caregivers have families and children at home to care for in addition to helping with senior home care needs. ComForCare can help provide family respite so that family members are better able to balance home and personal needs with helping to care for their elder family member. ComForCare can help families to maintain better relationships by easing the pressure.
Chronic Condition Management
Chronic conditions that require medication and therapy plague many seniors. ComForCare caregivers can provide assistance with tasks that may be more difficult because of chronic conditions and can also help seniors to better manage conditions. Caregivers can help with cooking meals that follow given dietary guidelines, assist with medication reminders, and can provide a helping hand with recommended therapeutic exercises.
Caregivers can also provide supervision and monitoring home care services and can seek the aid of medical professionals if needed. Simply having a caregiver present that is knowledgeable about chronic conditions and is interested in helping to manage the conditions often makes seniors feel better and participate more fully in condition management programs.
