Personal In Home Care in Northbrook, IL
Comfort Keepers is pleased to offer personal care services as a part of our in home care program. The purpose of personal care services is to assist senior citizens with basic tasks that are essential for living a safe and healthy life at home. Here are some examples of the most popular personal in home care services we provide to Northbrook seniors:
Bathing & Grooming
As seniors age, they may find it difficult to keep themselves clean. For this reason, our caregivers or Comfort Keepers support them with personal hygiene tasks such as bathing and grooming. When older adults take regular baths and showers, they significantly lower their chances of developing an infection or illness. Proper grooming is also vital as it can boost their self confidence levels and ensure they are putting their best face forward.
Transferring and Positioning
Proper transferring and positioning is a must for older adults. Our Comfort Keepers are highly trained to move and place senior clients in proper posture positions to promote safety and health. Transferring and positioning seniors correctly from or into bed and chairs get rid of pressure areas on the skin while reducing the risk of weak and stiff muscles.
A loss of mobility is common among the older population. Comfort Keepers can assist seniors in getting from point A to point B. With our support, older adults will be able to live and active lifestyle and enjoy increased energy, reduced blood pressure, and improved sleep and digestion.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Comfort Keepers understands the embarrassment that may come with the inability for seniors to take care of their toileting needs. Therefore, we support older adults with toileting and incontinence care in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and self-esteem.
Feeding and Special Diet Assistance
There are a variety of reasons that may make it difficult for senior citizens to feed themselves. Comfort Keepers realize that this loss of independence can be tough for them to accept. For this reason, our caregivers make every effort to make breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack an enjoyable occasion. In addition, we make sure that older adults stick to their prescribed diets to control or prevent certain health conditions.
