Interactive Caregiving Enhances Home Care Services for Seniors
Comfort Keepers Home Care services encourage seniors to participate in their own care
All too often, companies who provide home care services solely focus on the physical tasks that are essential for seniors to live a safe and comfortable life at home. While tasks such as bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring and positioning, and mobility assistance are important, they do not necessarily help seniors live a higher quality of life. That’s where the one-of-a-kind Interactive Caregiving service at Comfort Keepers comes in.
Interactive Caregiving, a service that is unique to Comfort Keepers, is based on the idea that seniors who develop meaningful relationships with their caregivers, family members, and friends live more fulfilling lifestyles than those who do not. It gives seniors the chance to participate in a wide range of activities and trust their caregivers while they are providing them with various personal and companionship home care services.
If you decide that Interactive Caregiving could benefit your older loved one, an individualized plan will be created. Once a client care coordinator gets to know your senior’s specific strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities, he or she will add activities that make sense to your older adult’s plan. Interactive Caregiving plans may include the following:
- Neighborhood walks
- Yoga classes at a community center
- Family birthday parties
- Board or computer games
- Dance lessons
- Conversations about politics, current events, or personal hobbies
- Knitting a scarf
- Attending an outdoor concert or community festival
It’s important to note that Interactive Caregiving plans are not set in stone and can be modified as a senior’s situation changes. You will find that Interactive Caregiving helps you create lasting memories with the special senior in your life.
When Interactive Caregiving was initially created, it was based on four concepts that our home care services aides still believe in and promote today. Firstly, physical activity strengthens senior’s muscles and reduces the risk of falls as a result. Next, older adults can keep their minds sharp and positive through a number of regular mental activities. Proper hydration and well-balanced meals also support a senior’s mind while home safety allows them to live a longer, healthier lifestyle.
