Studies have confirmed that seniors who recover from injuries and illnesses in the comfort, convenience, and familiarity of their own homes tend to do so faster, happier, and with fewer setbacks that those who recover in an institutional setting. Recuperating at home speeds healing time while decreasing the risk of re-hospitalization, nosocomial sepsis, or other infections. Despite this fact, many American seniors do not have the family or social support to safely remain at home and rehab outside of a clinical setting which forces them to spend time at a skilled care facility, nursing home, or even move into an assisted living community. Thankfully, Comfort Keepers of Marietta can provide another option.
Comfort Keepers specializes in elderly in home care for seniors who need assistance with homemaking, personal care support, or companionship. Services are completely customized and are available for both short and long-term needs. This means that seniors with chronic or progressive health problems are covered but so are seniors who only need short-term support while they are recovering from an accident, illness, or medical procedure. Even better, with Comfort Keepers of Marietta, services are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year from a few hours a week up to full-time, round-the-clock care and supervision, so there is never a time your senior loved one needs to be without the care and support they need.
Comfort Keepers carefully matches seniors with a skilled caregiver who can help them with daily living activities, transportation to and from rehab appointments, or clinical follow-ups. Some of the most common supports include light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation. Caregivers can also assist with medication management, run errands, and provide local transportation so the senior is sure to make it safely to and from their appointments. Personal elderly in home care support ranges from wound care, personal hygiene, and transferring and positioning to toileting, eating assistance, bathing, grooming, and dressing.
Many seniors who start with Comfort Keepers rehab support find that they want to stay with one or more services for the long term and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact, over half of seniors over the age of 65 need help with one or more activities of daily living to maintain their independence and maximize their quality of life.
