Age, illness or injury can make life more challenging for an older adult, but there are ways to addresses those challenges and improve quality of life. ComForCare offers the home care assistance needed by your loved ones so they can enjoy the comfort of their home without missing any of its amenities.
Our companions offer assistance for those dealing with the daily challenges of aging, chronic conditions, illness or injury. ComForCare home companions are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Some of the tasks our companions can assist with include:
- Social and Community Engagement: Perhaps the most important thing we can do for our clients is getting them to engage with what they enjoy in life: socializing with a trusted friend, seeing a theatre performance or movie, visiting their favorite places in the neighborhood, or any number of things that have become difficult to enjoy on their own.
- Housekeeping: Our caregivers help with daily tasks such as laundry, meal preparation, dusting and routine cleaning. By alleviating the stress of household tasks, our caregivers enable older adults to focus on their health, wellness, and family.
- Running errands/grocery shopping: For those with limited mobility or the inability to drive, errands and grocery shopping present a particular challenge. ComForCare caregivers can address this stress, helping to accomplish errands.
- Appointment keeping: ComForCare assists with appointment keeping, including doctor’s appointments, family gatherings, taking daily medications, and other important tasks.
ComForCare is extremely selective in our hiring process, not only looking for the best qualified, but also the most interesting and engaging candidates. Our professional care providers and companions are among the best of any agency in New York City—college-educated individuals, nursing students, college and graduate students, performing artists, and home care aides—each screened for their personality, compassion and energy.
ComForCare believes in the healing power and self-esteem boost gained with personal independence for older adults. For this reason, our in-home care services encourage independence while assisting seniors with tasks they are no longer able to perform.
