ComForCare Home Care-Charleston is a family owned provider of in-home care services that are non-medical in nature.  We enable individuals to stay in their homes by assisting with vital daily activities including meal preparation, safety supervision, transportation, medication reminders, bathing, grooming and hygiene.

Quality Home Care

Dedicated to meeting the highest standards in home care, our goal is to improve the quality of life and the level of independence for every client and family receiving our home care services.  We know that it takes a special person to provide the companionship and perform the duties needed to support this level of care, and we will only hire a caregiver whom we would feel entirely comfortable sending into our own home. We strive to hire great caregivers and provide them with tools and training that help them provide excellent care.

Personalized Care Plans

Our process focuses on the welfare of the individual receiving the care.  Each individual’s care plan is supported by a team, beginning with a thorough in-home nurse assessment.  A customized care plan is developed and implemented amid ongoing oversight that provides peace of mind.

Common Types of Assistance Clients Request Include:

  • Grooming & Hygiene
  • Bathing & Toileting
  • Meal Planning and Preparation
  • Transportation/Errands
  • Medication Reminders
  • Safety Supervision
  • Light Housekeeping such as laundry, vacuuming, dusting and dishes
  • Companionship and Friendship
  • Family Respite to provide family caregivers relief
  • Pet Care

The ComForCare Difference

 We pride ourselves in unmatched quality care. Our process includes a hands-on approach to client care, including attending nurse assessments, supervisory visits and constant communication.  Within the process, we strive to educate clients and their loved ones on how to better manage their health conditions.

Bonded, insured and licensed in South Carolina, ComForCare takes a patient-centered approach that provides independence and quality of life.

 

Three Ways In-Home Care Can Help You

Growing old can be a wonderful time in a person’s life. It may provide opportunities to travel, enjoy hobbies, volunteer for worthwhile causes, or simply spend more time with family. As the years pass, however, older adults may experience a decline in overall health, along with a need to rely more on family members for assistance with everyday tasks.

When caring for an elderly loved one, family members may find that they are able to reconnect in more meaningful ways than in the past by sharing family stories and just enjoying the moment together. It can be very rewarding to give back to your parents the love and care they gave to you. In addition, caring for your parents can help them stay as healthy and independent as possible. That, in turn, can lead to better days for all of you.

There are, of course, challenges that may arise in caring for your loved one. Here are a few situations in which a trusted home care service can provide a helping hand:

  1. Mealtimes

Good nutrition is important to good health. Your loved one may not have much appetite anymore, or it may be difficult for your loved one to prepare healthy meals. You may not have time to make sure your elderly parents are eating properly each day, especially if they live in their own home.

Having a professional caregiver on hand during meals can save you time and may help your loved one eat healthier meals. For instance, our caregivers can check the expiration dates on foods, help compile shopping lists, and provide transportation to and from the grocery store.

  1. Holidays

When you are providing care to an elderly parent and have children of your own, holidays can be a busy time. The good news is that our caregivers are available for whatever timetable you might need.

For instance, you can hire in-home care services for a week or two in the winter so that you can have extra time for holiday preparations, special outings with your children, or out-of-town travel. Our caregivers can also help your loved one with tasks such as holiday shopping or addressing greeting cards. Whatever the circumstances, ComForCare/At Your Side is here to help.

  1. Work Responsibilities

According to a survey by the National Caregiver Alliance and AARP, about fifty percent of family caregivers who care for people ages fifty or older also work a full-time job. Another eleven percent of caregivers work part-time.

The demands of caregiving can have a negative effect on your employment obligations, due to the extra stress and the need for additional time off to deal with caregiving responsibilities. When things get busy at work, hiring a little extra help may allow you to be more focused and productive. With senior home care services, you can stay on top of your career while maintaining your peace of mind.
