Loved ones are those most dear to us. Throughout our lives, they have been there for us in our times of need. As these loved ones grow older, we want to be there for them as well. The problem is: this may not always be easy. Personal work and family schedules are often hectic. We may live in areas that are too far away to provide frequent companionship. At ComForcare, we understand that sometimes, it may become overwhelming. ComForcare can help by providing senior personal care to seniors who live in the Triad area of North Carolina, including Jamestown, Summerfield, and Stokesdale.
One of the core focuses of our senior personal care plans is fall prevention. As individuals grow older, slips and falls inside and outside of the home often become a growing threat. ComForcare fall prevention begins with a thorough assessment of the home and its potential safety risks and hazards. These may include areas such as walkways and floors, stairs and entrances, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. Outside safety hazards are also evaluated for patients who wish to enjoy the outdoors without the risk of injury.
Fall Prevention Plan
Our specially trained and experienced caregivers will incorporate fall prevention into each patient’s senior personal care plan. Once environmental fall risks are identified, we work with each patient and their loved ones to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each patient. Based on a combination of these factors, we create a fall prevention plan to help reduce the risk of falls for our patients. Patients and their families can have peace of mind knowing that these needs are addressed and seniors are cared for.
Incontinence may be an issue that requires consistent daily attention for seniors who live in the Jamestown, Summerfield, and Stokesdale areas. In many cases, seniors may feel embarrassed or ashamed to need help. At ComForcare, we understand that incontinence is a natural issue that comes with age or certain health conditions. There is no need to feel ashamed when receiving help. Our experienced and compassionate caregivers are trained to provide discrete incontinence care for those who need it.
Dementia can be a difficult condition to manage, for patients as well as their families. We offer special senior personal care plans for dementia patients. This senior personal care focuses on the specific needs of each dementia patient. Dementia care plans include specially-designed activities for maintaining cognitive abilities, such as communicating and critical thinking. By stimulating each patient’s mind and providing hands-on senior personal care, we help to manage more overall positive outcomes for dementia patients.
