Senior Care Services & Interactive Caregiving™ in Ocala, FL
Comfort Keepers® Brings Its Interactive Caregiving™ Approach to Senior Care Services in Ocala, FL, and Surrounding Areas
What is Interactive Caregiving™?
It is the distinctive approach to in-home senior care services that Comfort Keepers® provides. It’s what separates Comfort Keepers’ services from the others, and it’s accomplished through our approach to caring for your loved one and the people we hire.
Interactive Caregiving centers around four interrelated aspects:
- Engaging the mind through mental exercise
- Maintaining an active body to help sustain independent living
- Obtaining proper nutrition through a well-balanced diet
- Providing guidance on how to make the home safer for the senior
Our caregivers, called Comfort Keepers®, are screened and trained before they are paired with a client. We hire people who are naturally suited to the caregiving role, then we train them in the Interactive Caregiving philosophy that guides Comfort Keepers.
How Interactive Caregiving Makes a Difference
We believe the Interactive Caregiving senior care services approach helps contribute to happier, healthier, and more satisfying lives for our senior clients, and that sets us apart from other caregivers. Keeping seniors active, both physically and mentally, has been shown in studies to keep seniors living independently longer.
The Interactive Caregiving philosophy is based on the idea that even ordinary daily activities are opportunities for stimulation and enrichment in the lives of the clients we serve. Comfort Keepers tailors our approach by creating an Interactive Caregiving plan that is unique to each client. These plans are based on seniors’ interests, needs, preferences, and abilities.
Our caregivers do more than come into the home and cook a meal or tidy up. They engage their clients in activities, such as preparing a meal or organizing a box of old photos, to open up opportunities for conversation or reminiscing and provide interaction that brings social and emotional enrichment to seniors’ lives. This could be by helping the senior pursue hobbies or crafts, take walks, go shopping, or participate in church or civic activities. We can also provide transportation so your loved one can socialize with others at local senior centers or take part in other community activities.
