Learn about the amenities an in home caregiver can provide to your loved ones
When many people reach old age, they start having difficulties taking care of themselves. When this happens, many rely on their loved ones for assistance around the home. For those that don’t have the luxury of having a family member to take care of them, usually look to an assisted living facility for support. While this can sometimes provide the help they need, it usually also comes with its own difficulties and is not normally the option seniors want. Fortunately, there is another option. When a loved one in your life reaches their golden years, you can make sure they get the care that they need from the comfort of their own home with Comfort Keepers, and it’s nationally recognized in home care for seniors.
When your loved one works with our Comfort Keepers team, we assess everything concerning their wellbeing, including their home, their medical condition, their dietary needs, and their care expectations to create a unique care plan that covers all of their assistance needs. Some of the services our caregivers are trained to provide include:
- Personal Care: Comfort Keepers personal care services can be scheduled for as much or as little as needed. Som of our personal home care services include bathing and hygiene, mobility assistance, toileting and incontinence care, and feeding assistance
- Companion Care: There's no need to worry about the safety of your independent senior loved one with companion care. Light household cleaning, laundry, medication reminders, incidental transportation, and accompaniment to appointments are all part of companion care.
- Interactive Caregiving: Comfort Keepers of Wheeling, IL provides a unique brand of caregiving that we provide to our clients to keep them engaged in every step of their care.
- Respite Care: We understand the challenges that can come with being a full-time caregiver for a loved one. This is why we offer respite care, which is similar to our in home care, but offered to our clients for shorter periods while their usual caregiver is away. This service allows a senior’s usual caregivers much needed time off. Whether it’s for a few hours or a few days, we’re here to help
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care: Having a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be a challenging time for everyone involved. Fortunately, you don’t need to do it alone. Our highly trained staff of caregivers are ready to provide the added safety, and mental activity, a person with these conditions need.
- End of Life Care: Our caregivers are ready to provide the assistance your family requires after learning of a loved one’s terminal illness. As well as assisting the senior through this difficult time, caregivers can also provide moral and emotional support to friends and family. This service can be independent or in coordination with a hospice agency.
- Transitioning Care: After returning home from an extended hospital stay, it is vital that seniors get the assistance they need. With the support of an in home care provider, your loved one will quickly be back on the road to recovery.
We are ready to provide the assistance your loved one needs. If you have any questions about our services, or you would like to schedule an appointment with a care coordinator, please give us a call at (847) 215-8550.
