    PERSONAL CARE SERVICES


    Bathing
    Bathing is essential to an individual’s sense of well-being. It refreshes the spirit, provides relaxation while cleansing the skin and stimulating circulation.

    Mobility
    Activity and exercise are vital to a healthy lifestyle. The benefits of movement to both physical and mental health are seen in everyday life. Benefits include increasing stamina, strengthening the heart, lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep. In addition it improves mood, releases stress and increases mental alertness

    Transferring and positioning
    Moving or placing a person into a correct posture position encourages the functional activity of the body’s many systems. It assists in eliminating pressure areas on the skin, reducing atrophy and stiffening of muscles, encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.

    Incontinence care
    The inability to control urination or defecation is embarrassing to individuals and can become unsanitary if not taken care of correctly. Our caregivers understand the sensitivity of this situation and approaches to caring for individuals who need assistance.

    Toileting
    Elimination is an important and normal body function. However, it is usually an activity that is private and one that is not openly discussed. The individual often faces embarrassment along with a sense of loss of independence. Our caregivers strive to provide an acceptable, comfortable and safe environment for all types of toileting needs.


    Feeding
    We understand that it is usually hard for an adult to accept the idea of not being able to feed themselves. The reasons are varied, however the sense of loss of independence is real. Our caregivers understand the feelings this can cause and take the extra effort to make the environment and mealtime special.

    Oral hygiene
    Proper mouth, teeth, denture and gum care are essentials to good oral and dental hygiene. Daily oral care can prevent bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease and assist in prevention of other diseases.


    Special diet and meal preparation
    We recognize that eating is a social activity and that good nutrition is important in order for people to live life to its fullest. It is especially important for a person whose body is in a weakened condition. Proper foods give us energy to carry out the day’s activities, are necessary to rebuild body tissue, prevent disease and are essential to any healing process.

    Families choose Comfort Keepers for different reasons. For some, it is for extensive care. For others, we offer a much needed break or "respite care" for family members who regularly provide care.
    Alzheimer’s Disease and Caring For Loved Ones
    Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a common form of dementia that negatively impacts the portions of the brain that effect thought, memory and language. Today, as many as 4.5 million people in the United States suffer from varying stages of AD. The initial symptoms may be as minor as forgetting names or recent events, but as the disease progresses, the Alzheimer’s patient may wander, become anxious or even aggressive.

    How can Comfort Keepers® help you manage the care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease?
    Most people hope to age safely and comfortably in their own home, including those managing AD. Many Alzheimer’s patients can safely stay in their own home for a period of time, and that’s where Comfort Keepers can provide care assistance. Many Comfort Keepers have been formally trained by local chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association or the Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral Center (ADEAR) in how to provide in-home care for AD patients. It may include:

    Assisting the client with dressing or grooming
    Aiding the client in communication
    Improving eating habits with healthy meal planning
    Enhancing home safety by implementing measures to prevent wandering or driving
    And….much needed respite care for family members who may be primary care providers for the Alzheimer’s patient.
