Home Care in Niles, MI
Superior senior home care in Niles, MI comes from Comfort Keepers of St. Joseph, MI
If the idea of having a "stranger" come into your home to help you with tasks you have been doing all your life is a little discomforting, you are not alone. Across the continent, millions of seniors rely solely on care from family members and their own stubbornness to keep going long after they should. But, for many whose families are busy or located far away, old age can become a time of stress, worry, neglect, and misery. Even if your loved ones are nearby, it can be a burden to tend for their own families, do their jobs, and also provide the level of care that their aging relatives need. And yet, many seniors absolutely refuse to go to a nursing home or leave their home in Niles. A better solution for everyone involved is hiring outside help to assist the seniors in the comfort of their own homes. At Comfort Keepers, we offer a range of home care services in Niles, MI intended to provide the help you need via a friendly and skilled team of senior caregivers who can help you age in place. In-home care is often much more affordable and comfortable for seniors than assisted living homes, so it's a great option.
Although you may not know the caregiver assigned to you at first, it won't take long before they become a part of your "family." Each of our caregivers has been selected not just for their professionalism and ability to provide you with a wide range of homemaking and personal care services such as light housekeeping, bathing, grooming, toileting, errand running, and more, but also for their ability to provide you with compassion and companionship. We understand that having a stranger come into your home can be a little uncomfortable at first, but we are sure you and your caregiver will become fast friends in no time. To us, proper in home care is about making the client feel comfortable and cared for. Our goal is never to make a client feel like a patient, and instead want to help them feel respected and taken care of. We strive to provide companionship, in addition to accomplishing basic caregiving tasks. Our caregivers truly care about our clients and enjoy spending time with them, and our seniors often find they feel the same way.
A Focus on Independent Living
Our caregivers are also here to help you remain independent, not strip your independence from you. We want you to remain in your home for as long as possible, which is why we're here to help. However, we never mean to overstep our bounds. Our services are flexible so we can provide the exact level of care you need, without taking over your life or offering care you don't need or want. Do you just need someone a few hours week? We can make that happen. Need round the clock care instead? That's an option. The easiest way to figure out how we can best meet your needs is to schedule a free in home consultation with our caregiving team.
One of the biggest advantages of choosing Comfort Keepers for your in home senior care needs is our interactive caregiving. We believe that all of our clients are real people with real interests and need to be interacted with. We don't just hand out medications and plop in front of the tv; we interact with our seniors all day to make sure that they are entertained and enjoying life. We love to figure out what interests our clients and participate in those activities with them, from walking around the block, to cooking their favorite meals, to listening to their favorite music. We focus on the quality of our seniors' lives, and socializing is an important part of that. We even bring our seniors out into the Niles community to socialize with others if they so desire.
Personal Care Services Offered to Niles Seniors
We are proud to be able to offer all sorts of non-medical services to seniors across Niles and the surrounding area. Just some of the services that we offer include:
Grooming and Hygiene Care
Hygiene is an important part of a happy life, yet many seniors are unable to care for themselves like they once were able to. Comfort Keepers are here to here to assist with bathing, shaving, hair care, and other hygiene needs as needed. We understand that things like losing the ability to bathe yourself can be a touchy subject and vulnerable for seniors, so our caregivers offer compassion to make it a comfortable experience for everyone involved.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Another sensitive issue for many of the aging population is incontinence issues or being unable to get onto the toilet alone. Our caregivers compassionately aid seniors with these sensitive issues to ensure that they are comfortable and their needs are taken care of.
Errands and Grocery Shopping
Many seniors find themselves unable to drive, which can make it hard to fill prescriptions or buy groceries for themselves. Our caregivers are able to run these errands for seniors or to drive them to the store if the senior would like to get out. We also are able to provide rides to places such as doctor's appointments, barbershops, and other community places the senior desires to go.
Transferring and Positioning
One of our top priorities is helping seniors be comfortable in their own home, and that includes helping them move around their house. We can help seniors get out of bed and into their wheelchair or other chairs as needed. We can also help position seniors who are bed-bound to help reduce bedsores and make the elderly more comfortable. Having a caregiver around reduces the risk of falls and allows us to offer immediate assistance if a fall does occur.
Our caregivers are able to make sure that the house has groceries and that seniors are eating nutritious meals, which is a worry for many families. We are able to follow diets prescribed by doctors to manage health issues. Our caregivers can cook a healthy and nutritious meal, and just having a companion at meal time encourages a senior to eat more and helps them enjoy the experience of mealtimes.
Because no one should live in a dirty environment, we offer light housekeeping services. These include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens, and straightening rooms. We are also able to offer laundry services to ensure that your loved one always has clean clothes for the day.
