California boasts the third highest life expectancy of all of the states in the nation, with almost seven million residents over the age of sixty. The number of senior residents in need of assistance can make the prospect of going to a nursing home even more daunting than usual with this high potential for understaffing and overcrowding. ComForcare home care services can help provide seniors an alternative to a nursing home, allowing seniors to stay in the comfort of their own home and receive the assistance that they need. We provide home care services to the Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Orangevale, and Del Webb Westpark areas of California.
Home Care Services
Assistance with home care tasks such as dishes, dusting, and laundry may not seem like a huge help, but for those that have disabilities or are at an advanced age, these kinds of tasks can become overwhelming. Having a personal caregiver take care of these tasks not only helps keep patients’ houses cleaner, it can also be more conducive to harmonious living. The patient is relieved of the worry surrounding these tasks while enjoying a clutter-free space.
Patients may also have difficulty preparing meals that are nutritious due to various conditions such as failing eyesight. Caregivers will work with patients and their families to plan and prepare meals that meet the patients’ needs in terms of nutrition and any limitations. Having delicious and healthy meals prepared can give patients more strength and help promote greater health and well-being.
A lack of transportation can be a source of stress and discontent for patients that are no longer capable of driving. Caregivers can provide senior transportation on a dependable schedule or as patients desire to help ease this discontent. We understand that seniors in the Carmichael, Citrus Heights, Del Webb Westpark, Orangevale, and Fair Oaks areas want to get out and see the sights and have a much needed break from being home all of the time. Our caregivers are happy to enjoy this break with patients.
Family relations may become tense as family members attempt to meet patient’s needs while fulfilling other obligations. Having a knowledgeable and caring home care associate help with tasks, transportation, and other needs can help restore patient’s familial relations as the tension is lifted from all parties. Family respite can be so important to maintaining these relationships.
ComForcare also offers live-in care for patients. Live-in care can provide valuable 24 hour supervision for patients that have higher risks of wandering, falls, or medical episodes. While caregivers do not provide medical attention, caregivers are available to seek the assistance needed in this type of situation, while taking care of all of the patient’s other home care needs. Live-in care can promote greater health and happiness for patients with these more intensive needs.
