A Better Option for Your Home Health Care Needs
About the Owner Bill Cardenas
Bill Cardenas became the owner and operator of the Comfort Keepers office after he discovered the benefits of home health care. Bill was introduced to the non-medical in-home industry as a result of the help needed to care for his wife’s mother.
From this experience, Bill and his wife were able to appreciate the benefit and support a professional in home health carein-homeer could offer a family who because of work and other responsibilities would not be able to provide all of the required attention and needed care for the family member.
Bill is grateful that he can help clients realize their wish to continue living independently at home. He also enjoys the opportunity to help people who are just returning home from a stay in the hospital for surgery or medical care. Comfort Keepers is there to make the transition back into home life safe and comfortable.
Bill is a member of the Society of Certified Senior Care Advisors (CSA), Partners in Care Foundation, an active member of L.A. Team Referral, Better Business Bureau and an active long-term Usher at his Church.
About Comfort Keepers in Los Angeles
With the help of Comfort Keepers, seniors in the greater Los Angeles area can continue living in the comfort of their own home with a high level of independence and quality of life through our senior care. Our skilled, compassionate senior caregivers - who we call Comfort Keepers - provide customized care for each client to continue living safely and happily at home.
Our unique system of home health care promotes the dignity and respect, physical, mental and emotional health of our clients as we involve them in their own care and interactive activities that add meaning to their lives. Comfort Keepers become valued family partners. We share with them the care of their family members and providing peace of mind while they are to attend to other responsibilities at work and home. Depending on each senior and family needs, our Comfort Keepers can provide as few as four hours of home care a week to full-time, 24 hour home care. Comfort Keepers partners with other health care resources to offer seniors and their family access to a wide range of elder care services.
Our Partners in Home Care
Comfort Keepers has established strong partnerships with a network of senior and home health care providers in the Los Angeles area to provide our clients and their families a full range of services to meet their needs. These partnering organizations include health care and hospice care agencies, adult day care, hospitals, convalescent, rehabilitation, and assisted living facilities.
Our Care Philosophy
The idea behind our unique approach to home care, Interactive Caregiving®, — backed by solid research — is that seniors who stay actively engaged in life retain better cognitive function, remain in better physical condition, and live happily and independently longer.
Interactive Caregiving is based on five primary components, which Comfort Keepers® put to work as we care for, engage and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
- A senior who receives help with the activities of daily living (ADLs), and the other four essential components of Interactive Caregiving, is more likely to live safely, happily and independently at home.
