Comfort Keepers of Woodland, CA Provides Companion Care in Dixon, CA
Elderly home services should care for the physical and social needs of seniors
Most people know that elderly home care entails services like helping your loved one bathe, take medication, go to the bathroom and feed themselves. Few are aware of the fact that quality elderly home care does not stop there.
At Comfort Keepers, we believe that quality home care means working with your loved one to provide them with all the non-medical assistance they need to stay not only happy but also satisfied in the lives they are leading. That is the focus of companion care.
We are always looking for ways to go above and beyond the call of caregiving duty. Comfort Keepers of Woodland, CA provides the following companion services in Dixon, CA:
Conversation and Companionship:
Conversation and companionship is an important aspect of elderly home care. With our caregiving, we are hoping to help your loved one feel less lonely by finding ways for them to stay engaged. This can have a positive impact on their health overall, even, surprisingly, physical ability.
Eating a well-balanced diet can make a difference in just about anybody's life. It can help seniors feel better and even ease the symptoms of chronic conditions people over the age of 65 most often deal with. A caregiver can help your loved one prepare their own meals. This means helping with the preparation and cooking itself, but also with grocery shopping, cleaning and organization.
Clean clothing not only promotes personal hygiene but can benefit self-esteem as well. Our caregivers can do your loved one's laundry in addition to ironing the clothes and putting them away as desired. We can also organize their closet in such a way to make it easy for them to reach their favorite clothes.
Other Light Housekeeping:
A clean house can help prevent many hygiene-related issues and conditions your loved one could face. It can also help prevent them from taking a fall or injuring themselves which is important particularly for seniors because a majority of emergency room visits by people over the age of 65 are the direct result of a fall.
Getting around is crucial to staying active and engaged. If your loved one is no longer able to drive, a caregiver can take them where they need to go.
