We can help with the housework so that seniors and their families can relax.
Senior Home Care Services in Montgomery County, PA
Home care services can help seniors receive assistance with housekeeping, grooming needs, and many other needs while easing the pressure on family members that may have been helping with these tasks. Senior home care services are much more personalized than the care that elder residents often receive in nursing homes. Seniors are also able to thrive in the environment that they have grown to love with their beloved pets and favorite personal items, rather than having to make the tough transition to an institutional setting that may have rules about pets and only provides a certain amount of living space.
Running errands may seem to be mundane tasks when they are easily accomplished. For individuals that no longer have the ability to drive, however, senior transportation needs take on a much greater difficulty level. Our compassionate caregivers are happy to provide senior transportation in the Abington, Ambler, Blue Bell, Huntingdon Valley, and Dresher area, whether it is to take care of grocery shopping needs and other responsibilities or to enjoy a day out of the house visiting friends or participating in outings.
Seniors that suffer from physical or cognitive disabilities may require round-the-clock home care. Our home care professionals are highly trained to deliver home care that caters to these more intensive needs. Patients may need assistance with getting out of bed, bathing, dressing, eating, incontinence care, and many other daily tasks. Our compassionate caregivers are prepared to meet all of these needs for patients while also being a sincere companion.
Alzheimer’s disease can cause behavioral changes and cognitive decline that can make home care difficult on family members. ComForcare home care associates are trained to understand how best to ensure that patients have positive emotional experiences that can reduce the occurrence of behavioral episodes. Caregivers will also provide a home evaluation and advice for family members to create a home environment that is as safe as possible for Alzheimer’s patients.
When seniors fall ill or begin to have difficulty with daily tasks, it is typically family members that step in and provide the necessary assistance. While this is admirable, it may become difficult for family members to keep up with senior personal care needs in addition to working and taking care of their own needs. ComForcare associates provide family respite that can be a welcome relief for family members that have been trying to do it all.
Seniors that are suffering from dementia may benefit greatly from staying in the home setting that they are most comfortable with and retaining the independence to take care of tasks that are still within their capabilities. This sense of empowerment can help patients to feel less frustrated, which can reduce the occurrence of more difficult behavior. Our caregivers are highly trained in working with dementia patients and their family members to minimize hazards in the home and to set up the home in a way that is most conducive to dementia care. Caregivers will also facilitate programs and games that may help patients to retain and possibly restore memory functions and other cognitive abilities.
Transition of Care
It is following surgery or a hospital stay that many patients in the Blue Bell, Lafayette Hill, and Elkins Park area most often require assistance with senior personal care needs. ComForcare caregivers will help make the transition of care a smooth one, assisting with arranging the home in a way that is most effective and comfortable for any new equipment that may be brought in, as well as reducing fall hazards. Caregivers will also take on daily care tasks and help with any other necessary senior personal care needs starting the minute that the patient comes home.
