Why is a strong client-family-caregiver-Comfort Keeper office staff relationship important?
- Families who have a live-in caregiver from an agency other than Comfort Keepers and call looking to make a change report the following concerns:
- My current live-in is becoming "too close" with mom or dad and interfering with what our family wants.
- Our current live in caregiver is making decisions for mom or dad that are unwanted or questioned by our family.
- Mom reports to us that the live-in caregiver is not cooking foods mom likes but rather what the caregiver likes.
- Dad reports the caregiver is leaving him for several hours unattended sitting in chair with little to no interaction.
- The live-in caregiver we hired is hard to understand, does not know how to clean the home properly or what how to cook for mom or dad.
Trust, support and quality of care. Families can trust that when they have a concern about how care is being provided it will be addressed quickly and resolved. Both caregivers and family are supported through training and on-going communication about changes in care needs. And finally...

- Live-In Caregivers also assist with light housekeeping, laundry, making meals, remind your loved one to take medications, go for a walk, go grocery shopping or take your loved one to a doctor's appointment.
- Live-In services are for clients who sleep through the night and/or not in need of a 2 person transfer assist.If a 2 person transfer assist is needed or client wakes at night Comfort Keepers Care Management staff can discuss hourly staffing or live in with additional hourly staffing when needed.
- Live-In services through the Springfield PA or King of Prussia PA Comfort Keepers offices abide by all labor laws and our clients and their families are told at time of inquiry that no Comfort Keeper caregiver will be assigned 7 days in a row to work as a live-in.
