Needing assistance with senior personal care is nothing to be ashamed of, but many seniors are hesitant to ask for help. Seniors may feel that they are imposing on family members that provide assistance or they may worry that they will lose independence by being packed off to a nursing home. ComForCare can help to alleviate these worries and fears for seniors in The Hills and Lake Travis areas of Texas by providing top quality in-home senior personal care.
Senior Personal Hygiene
ComForCare caregivers can help seniors to maintain personal hygiene by assisting with bathing, dressing, and grooming needs. Caregivers can help seniors to brush teeth, comb hair, and make appointments to maintain hairstyles, dental health, and many other common personal needs. If seniors suffer from conditions that cause incontinence or other issues that affect hygiene, caregivers will help to resolve these issues by creating a daily care plan to ensure that seniors are always clean and comfortable.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
With Alzheimer’s and dementia rates climbing, more seniors are being diagnosed with these conditions each day. ComForCare understands that the seniors suffering from these conditions are real people that still wish to enjoy their lives to the greatest extent possible. ComForCare works with seniors and their family members to create a daily routine that will help to avoid common dementia triggers and facilitate more positive experiences. Caregivers will also introduce games and activities that may stimulate cognitive functions and help to delay dementia and Alzheimer’s symptoms.
After being treated for conditions, illnesses, or injuries and being released from a medical facility, seniors often find themselves vulnerable and in need of assistance with senior personal care needs. ComForCare can provide seniors in the Lake Travis and The Hills areas with assistance to ease the transition of care from the medical facility to home, setting up the home in a way that eases mobility and reduces fall risks. After seniors come home, ComForCare caregivers can help seniors to ease back into daily routines while providing assistance with meal preparation, hygienic needs, and many other senior personal care needs.
Having a trusted companion can ease many of life’s little ills and make days more enjoyable. ComForCare caregivers take pleasure in providing companionship for seniors. If seniors are able to leave the home and participate in festivals and local events, caregivers are happy to help seniors get out and have fun. If seniors are unable to enjoy these activities because of physical limitations or conditions, caregivers are happy to play games and provide in-home entertainment. Caregivers are also happy to just sit and talk with seniors or take suggestions for leisurely activities that clients enjoy.
