Many seniors feel most comfortable in their own homes. Family members, however, may have concerns about the abilities of seniors to handle activities of daily living, maintain a safe living environment, and care for their own health. One way to help families with senior loved ones feel more at ease with this option is to work with a live-in caregiver, someone who will be there at all times to ensure that their loved ones are comfortable and living a quality life.
The benefits of working with a live-in caregiver include:
For aging adults with limited mobility or little access to transportation, companionship may be a concern. Live-in caregivers are a great way to ensure that your loved one is active and engaged with others throughout the day and does not become isolated. Sitting together during the day, watching movies or television, preparing a meal or even sharing a meal can open up the lines of conversation, helping seniors to feel comfortable with their caregiver. For seniors, companionship and conversation are essential to their continued health and happiness. Social contact has been proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Feeling positive and happy about your appearance, whether you’re going out or staying in for the day, can make a big difference in your overall demeanor and mood. Comfort Keepers®’ live-in caregivers help seniors to feel good about themselves each day. Assisting with everything from bathing to grooming to hygiene assistance, our caregivers are focused on helping seniors feel comfortable and maintaining their dignity.
One of the biggest concerns families with aging loved ones have is the state of their loved one’s home. It can be difficult for seniors to keep their home in tip-top shape because of mobility and stamina issues.
In-home caregivers from Comfort Keepers can assist with light housekeeping chores, including vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. You can be assured that your loved one’s home is clean and safe with a live-in caregiver who is there to help each day.
Peace of Mind
One of the most beneficial aspects of working with a live-in caregiver is the peace of mind it offers family members who cannot be at home with their aging loved one every day. Our caregivers are experienced and offer loving in-home care to your senior family members. Live-in caregivers help to ensure that seniors live an independent and quality life by assisting with cooking, light housekeeping, medication reminders, grooming, and more.
Comfort Keepers provides customized in-home care services ranging from a few hours to around-the-clock care for those who need a live-in caregiver.
