In Home Care in Pekin, IL
Comfort Keepers provides top-rated in home care to seniors in Pekin.
Tens of millions of American seniors have a hard time performing one or more daily living tasks such as laundry, cooking, light housekeeping, and running errands. Most of these seniors need to make important decisions about their living arrangements. Downsizing and moving into an assisted living community offers many of the same freedoms they are accustomed to, but there are also support services and even some medical care available on-site. Seniors who require more frequent or advanced medical care may choose to move into a nursing home. While these changes in living situations are the right choice for a percentage of seniors, many others would prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home despite their hardships. This choice often puts family members in a difficult position as they want to honor their loved one's feelings, but they are worried about their loved one's safety and quality of life. For many of these families, home care offers the perfect solution.
In Home Care in Pekin, IL
Home care services allow a senior with daily living needs to safely remain in their home while maximizing their independence. Some home care agencies strictly provide non-medical services while others include home health care such as private duty nursing support. Providers like Comfort Keepers who offer both types of service ensure that seniors are able to receive all of their necessary care from one source. This is particularly important when seniors have progressive medical disorders such as dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, ALS, and the like.
Seniors do not need to have serious medical conditions to receive home care support. Sometimes, limited mobility or chronic pain can be enough to severely impact daily activities. For example, arthritis can make cooking, cleaning, and even opening medication bottles very difficult, if not impossible. Vision and hearing loss can make driving unsafe necessitating transportation support.
The ultimate goal of home care services is to allow seniors to live independently for as long as possible while remaining safe with a high quality of life. Each of Comfort Keepers home care staff is trained in their trademarked Interactive Caregiving model. Interactive Caregiving ensures that seniors become the focus of all support. This means caregivers do not just perform tasks around the home, they get to know the senior on a personal level and bring them into the caregiving experience. Interactive caregiving goes beyond chores and reaches seniors on the emotional, social, and cognitive levels.
In short, there are many different reasons a senior may require or desire home care.
