If your parent has recently been diagnosed with a chronic condition or has suffered a major medical event, you may be wondering if senior care would be a good option for them. Further, you may be wondering what you can and cannot expect from a caregiver?
In our years of providing senior care services, we have found that a good rule of thumb for this dilemma is to realize that a caregiver is there to help your parent live a normal, independent life. A caregiver will assist your senior loved one however they may need assistance.
Basically, a senior care professional is there to make up for any physical, mental or emotional needs your senior loved one may have in order to live an independent life. This can mean that they could be responsible for doing some of their housekeeping, running errands or going to the grocery store. Comfort Keepers care services include respite care, dementia care, Alzheimer’s disease care, end of life care and more. We emphasize Interactive Caregiving in our in home care services – the idea that seniors need to be engaged in all aspects of their lives. This means a senior caregiver will encourage your loved one to volunteer, play games to keep their minds sharp, and exercise regularly. Comfort Keepers in Zeeland, MI goes above and beyond other care providers due to Interactive Caregiving – we aim to elevate your senior loved one’s quality of life as much as possible.
Senior care is there to do anything we can to help your loved one live a happy and independent life.
