Maintaining a home takes work. For seniors, the physical activity required for housework can be tolling. We understand that with age, it becomes more and more difficult to keep a home clean and pristine. ComForcare Senior Services offers home care services for seniors who live in Durham, Wake Forest, Wendell, and the Wake County, Harnett County, Johnston County areas of North Carolina. Our caregivers can make sure that the home is taken care of so that seniors and their families have more time to focus on health and wellbeing.
In Home Care Services
Mundane housework chores may seem like a small task, but they can become intimidating or burdensome for seniors who have difficulty with the physical demands. Housekeeping can require hours of labor that involves bending, reaching, and scrubbing. For any individual, these tasks are often tiring and taxing on the body. ComForcare relieves this burden from seniors and their families by offering light housekeeping services such as cleaning and laundry.
Housekeeping services may include tasks such as:
- Washing dishes
- Taking out garbage
- Picking up mail
- Making beds
- Watering plants
Errands and Transportation
For seniors, the everyday task of running errands and other chores may become difficult. Many of these tasks require driving, which may be complicated or ill-advised for seniors who experience poor vision or a decrease in strength and coordination. Our caregivers provide assistance with these errands and chores that require travel outside the home. Caregivers can also provide transportation to seniors who have trouble driving, such as travel to important events like doctor’s appointments.
Seniors who suffer from dementia have unique physical, mental, and emotional needs. These needs often interfere with the ability to perform daily tasks around the house and maintain home care. ComForcare assists seniors and families of seniors who need dementia care. We develop special care plans that are specially catered toward each patient and his or her specific personal and home care needs. This way, patients and their families have more time to focus on the senior’s health instead of worrying about home care tasks.
For many seniors, incontinence can become an issue in later stages of life. Incontinence often occurs as a result of certain medical conditions, or a natural result of age. Some may experience feelings of guilt or embarrassment when asking others for assistance with incontinence care. Our caregivers understand how incontinence may affect patients. We’re here to help patients with incontinence issues while still maintaining comfort and dignity.
