We offer a wide range of services for seniors needing extra assistance in the South Haven area. A few of the senior care services we offer include:
Grooming, and Hygiene
Looking and feeling your best is important to everyone, regardless of age. Seniors may lose the ability to care for themselves. Our caregivers are there to help seniors who fear falling while bathing or have physical or cognitive limitations that make bath-time difficult. We can assist with hair combing and styling, shampooing, shaving (with an electric shaver), and other grooming needs to help seniors maintain personal hygiene.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Losing control of your body is difficult for anyone. We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for seniors who have lost the ability to care for themselves in this way. We also know that ignoring these issues is not an option for the comfort or health of the elderly involved. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living, which our senior clients appreciate.
Transferring and Positioning
An issue that seniors often face is immobility or being bedridden. Our caregivers are able to help our clients move around their homes, especially seniors who experience age or illness-related limited mobility. Our caregivers can assist the elderly with getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs. Caregivers are trained in proper positioning while sitting or lying, which can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. Having a caregiver around also reduces the risk of falls. If a fall does happen, caregivers are there to offer immediate help.
Mobility Assistance and Transportation
Seniors have had years and years of being independent and able to get themselves around town. It can be devasting to lose the ability to transport yourself. To assist with the difficult transition of aging, Comfort Keeper caregivers help seniors remain active by assisting them in getting from place to place in comfort and safety. Caregivers take clients to doctor's appointments, grocery stores, barber’s shops, and more. We're able to run errands that need to be run, such as picking up prescriptions or groceries. Seniors can tag along on the errand run to get out of the house or stay at home.
Seniors may have difficulty completing all of the errands they need to, such as picking up medication or buying groceries. Our caregivers take care of this problem by running around for you. This can include grocery shopping and other errands, such as stopping at the pharmacy or post office. Your loved ones are welcome to stay home or come along for the ride as a way to stay active.
Many family members worry about their aging relatives getting the proper nutrition in their diet. Whether your loved one has been prescribed a special diet by a doctor or just wants to improve their nutrition in general, our caregivers can help. They cook hot and wholesome meals to meet individual nutritional and dietary needs. Additionally, many seniors don’t eat enough, but having a companion at dinner encourages them to eat and makes the meal more enjoyable than just eating alone.
It's unhealthy to live in an unclean environment, but basic housekeeping tasks to keep a clean home can be tough for seniors. Our caregivers are available to provide light housekeeping, including dusting, mopping, sweeping, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms (basic cleaning of sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), straightening all rooms, and organizing closets and drawers.
In addition to basic housekeeping tasks, we are also happy to take care of all laundry needs, either in the home or at a nearby laundromat. After all, everyone needs clean clothes to be happy and healthy. These services may include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away. We know that many people are particular as to how their laundry is done, so our caregivers are careful to do the laundry to the client's specifications.
Our caregivers cannot administer medications. However, they can assist in ensuring that clients take their medication as prescribed by their doctors. Our caregivers can help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose of their medication. There is no need to worry about whether or not your loved is properly taking their medication when a caregiver is around to ensure that they are on track.
Conversation and Companionship
One thing that seniors lack as they age is companionship and even conversation. Their families have moved away, and it's difficult to maintain friendships as you age. Staying socially engaged is important to seniors’ health, so Comfort Keepers caregivers are happy to provide companionship to their clients. Our caregivers provide friendly company, conversation, and mealtime companionship — a fantastic way to keep your loved ones engaged and upbeat.
