Consider Interactive Caregiving™ with Comfort Keepers for your Senior
There are an estimated 5.5 million Americans living with dementia in the U.S. today, and as a result, the decision to find a caregiver is an important one.

It is difficult, but these circumstances happen, and the best way to move forward is to find the best solution that works for both you and your senior. Or even one that could enrich both your lives.

What is Interactive Caregiving™?
The health benefits of physical activity have been well established for a long time, which is why we find it unacceptable that seniors should be immobile and sitting around, not working their limbs, or especially their minds. Interactive Caregiving will give every senior the chance to be filled with life, energy and purpose. Some of what we provide for our interactive care is:
The Interact Caregiving™Experience
Comfort Keepers gives seniors the chance to take their lives back. After living independently for so long, we understand how difficult it can be to allow others to help us with what feels like mundane menial tasks. However, our caregivers are not here to be babysitters. They are here to create both mental and physical activities that seniors will enjoy, as well as create a diverse nutrition program that will aid them in lasting energy and confidence throughout the day.
Furthermore, we believe in a plan that keeps your mental health sharp through engagement in philosophy, the arts, literature, social interaction and various mental activity. It is vital to any aging senior with dementia, which is why we implement several facets of activity, including:
Exercise: We want to condition, strengthen and keep muscles moving. We believe that this practice can reduce the risk of falling, which tends to be a great danger risk for seniors.
Puzzles and reminiscing: Two great ways to help keep the mind sharp and focused. As a result, your senior will be less likely to experience negative emotions and become confused.
Nutrition: As mentioned prior, we believe that for seniors, a focus on meal preparation and hydration is a pivotal act of each and every day is proper nutrition. A focused diet rich in energy, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and several other benefits is key to a healthy mind and body.
Companionship: We call it Interactive Caregiving™ for a reason. Our trained caregivers are with your senior to provide assistance mentally and physically with their tasks and daily activities, with special care given to keeping activities fun and engaging.
Our goal is to provide a healthier, safer, and more fulfilling life for your loved one.
