Interactive Caregiving™ & Senior Care Services in the Mid-Ohio Valley
Our distinctive approach to senior care services is at the very heart of Comfort Keepers®.
If you are like most families, your parents probably spent a large part of their lives caring for you as you grew up and entered adulthood. Now that they have reached a point in their lives when, whether or not they want to admit it, they need a little extra help, it is your turn to be there for them. However, when you are already trying to balance raising your own family with caring for your home and a career, time can be a little short. At Comfort Keepers, we offer a full range of elder care services in Marietta, OH designed to help.
Our dedicated caregivers, the special people we call Comfort Keepers®, transform day-to-day caregiving into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.
How Do Senior Care Services Make a Difference?
We believe Interactive Caregiving contributes to longer, healthier, more purposeful lives for seniors; in fact, many research studies point to the health benefits of active living in later life.
An Interactive Caregiving plan is created for each senior client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities. This plan will include a variety of activities and elder care services such as
- walks in the neighborhood.
- working together on household chores.
- preparing a meal.
- discussing current events or personal interests.
- reminiscing while viewing photo albums.
- working on hobbies, puzzles or crafts.
- going shopping or to church.
- visiting a local senior center.
- participating in civic group activities.
- dancing to music.
Each Comfort Keepers® office delivers essential personal care, companionship, and homemaker services that help seniors live happily at home, like other in-home care providers. However, with our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical providers of senior care services.
Our senior care services are not intended to replace you, instead, they are intended to supplement the care you are already giving. We can be there for your loved ones when you can't, such as while you are at work. We have the same goal as you, to make sure your parents can continue to enjoy living at home rather than in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
The result? A healthier, safer, more fulfilling life for your loved one in the comfort of his or her home.

Benefits of Interactive Caregiving
Professional in-home care can be an effective way to enable seniors to remain in their homes while receiving the help they need to be safe and healthy. An essential element of effective in-home care is Interactive CaregivingTM that provides for emotional well-being that is vital to increasing quality of life. Seniors can benefit in many ways from comprehensive care that incudes Interactive CaregivingTM intended to meet physical, emotional, and social needs.
Our caregivers can help with tasks such as light housekeeping (sweeping, mopping, dusting), laundry, incidental transportation, nutritious meal preparation, and more. This is only the beginning as our caregivers have one more very important task, that of providing companionship for your loved ones so that they never have to feel as though they are alone. Companionship services beyond the home, escorting the senior in their care to appointments and events. The senior receives reliable transportation and mobility services as needed, but they also enjoy having a friend at their side as they run errands or attend family functions. Leaving the home is safer and more enjoyable with a skilled companion at their side.
Interactive care provides therapeutic benefits through active engagement in tasks. Each senior is encouraged to participate in household tasks as is appropriate for their capabilities. Not only does this fosters the building of a relationship, more importantly it allows the care receiver to retain vital skills. Comfort Keepers began providing around the clock care for a dementia patient that had not engaged in conversation with his adult children who were next door neighbors for 6 months. After two weeks, he surprised his children by jumping into their conversation. The family was curious about what we had done. The answer was simply that our staff had used Interactive Caregiving techniques.
