In Home Care in Springfield, OH
Learn about the benefits and services provided by in home care.
We all want our loved ones to enjoy healthy lives and to be able to live those lives in an environment that is safe, pleasant, and familiar. When seniors face medical or psychological challenges, however, their home often seems like a difficult place for them to remain. Thankfully, with in-home care support, many seniors who would otherwise need to receive skilled care services or move into a nursing home can safely remain in the comfort of their own residence.
Not all in-home care is the same. For some seniors, short-term support is necessary while they recover from an illness, injury, or medical procedure. Other seniors may need long-term support as they work through chronic or progressive ailments. Comfort Keepers adds respite services, end of life care, and hospital to home transitioning to this list. Plus, they specialize in dementia and Alzheimer's care.
Traditional in-home care supports include:
Light housekeeping Laundry Meal preparation
Medication Management Bathing Grooming
Eating support Toileting Dressing

In Home Care from Comfort Keepers
Comfort Keepers takes in-home care to the next level. Each support and service is performed according to their trademarked Interactive Caregiving model, which means the focus is placed on the senior and not the physical task. For many seniors, the companionship component of caregiving is even more important than the supports themselves. With Interactive Caregiving, caregivers meaningfully engage seniors socially, emotionally, and cognitively. By addressing the whole person, caregivers help seniors avoid social isolation, loneliness, and depression.
One of the best parts of in-home care is that is can be completely customized and personalized to meet each senior's unique needs and requirements. Further, the care is available when the senior needs it and not according to a care schedule. When a caregiver comes to your senior loved one's home, it is at a time the senior has chosen, and they are the sole focus of care for as long as the caregiver is there.
With so many amazing advantages to in-home care, it is no wonder that researchers discovered that seniors recover faster, stay healthier, avoid hospital re-admissions, and have fewer secondary infections when they receive their care at home.
