Customized Companion Care In Raleigh, NC
When most people think of senior care, they think of a caregiver helping a senior with the activities of day-to-day living. This mostly involves things like help with grooming and medication management. These are, of course, very important aspects of senior care, but they are not the only ones. Comfort Keepers has been caring for seniors across the country for over two decades and in that time we have realized the importance of companionship care.
As part of our nationally recognized senior care services, Comfort Keepers provides quality companionship care in Raleigh, NC. Through this aspect of our program, we will include your loved one in their own care as much as possible. This will not only help them feel better because they are staying active and engaged, it will help them feel like they are making decisions about their life like they are the ones in charge and not just being passively cared for.
Our caregivers will spend time with your loved one and engage them in conversation. They can also do some of their favorite hobbies with them like play cards or garden. They can also share a meal.
Speaking of meals, nutrition and meal preparation is a major aspect of companionship care. Our caregivers can work with your loved one and their nutritionist to make sure they are eating the way they should be. Malnutrition is a major problem in the senior community and doing all we can to make sure your loved one is eating well will go a long way to giving them the best chance possible at making the most of their Golden Years.
A caregiver can go to the grocery store for your parent and make sure they are always stocked up on fresh fruit and vegetables. They can also help your loved one prepare the meals. Whatever works best for your loved one. At the end of the day, it is precisely that flexibility which makes up quality caregiving.
Companionship care also includes activities such as light housekeeping, including vacuuming, dusting, and sweeping floors. Caregivers can also help with laundry and run errands.
