As people grow older, it becomes more difficult to maintain housework and other chores around the home. The time requirements and physical demands of home care can be tolling for seniors. In these cases, seeking professional help is an ideal way to ensure that home care is handled so that more focus can be placed on maintaining and improving senior health and wellbeing. ComForCare offers home care services to seniors who live in North Carolina’s Triad area, including High Point, and Kernersville.
Maintaining safety, security, and independence of elderly persons is important when considering a home care plan. Addressing fall prevention is critical toward achieving this goal, especially when patients experience physical or mental conditions that increase the risk of falling. A senior’s environment also plays an important role, especially when stairs, floors, rooms, and other areas in the home present obstacles that may compromise safety. Our trained and experienced caregivers work with patients and their families to develop comprehensive fall prevention plans for seniors.
It’s no secret that housekeeping is a time-consuming task. No matter the size of the home or the scope of the housework chores, housekeeping requires physical effort. Maintaining these household chores on a consistent basis may simply be too much to handle, especially for seniors who have certain medical conditions or physical limitations. To help these individuals, we offer housekeeping services for seniors who want one less thing to worry about during the day. ComForCare housekeeping services may include:
• Making beds
• Dusting and vacuuming
• Taking out the trash
• Making beds and changing linens
• Washing dishes
• Laundering and ironing clothes
Transportation and Errands
We understand that driving becomes more difficult with age. Seniors may experience issues such as poor vision and a decrease in coordination. ComForCare can provide transportation for seniors who cannot or do not wish to drive. Our caregivers can also provide assistance with daily or weekly errands such as grocery shopping, and personal errands such as picking up and dropping off medication prescriptions as part of our home care services.
Seniors who are in need of personal care or home care services often live alone. For these individuals, loneliness or boredom may become an issue. Our caregivers provide senior companionship to our patients. When housework and other chores are done, our caregivers are there to keep patients company. Social interaction is another key part of maintaining a senior’s overall health, wellness, and happiness. We assess each patient’s needs and personality when determining a home care plan. Based on this assessment, we select a caregiver we feel will be the best match. This results in not only a caregiver, but a friend to patients in the High Point, and Kernersville areas.
