Comfort Keepers

Excellent Home Care for the elderly

In this day and age when many care providers, including hospitals, are coming under fire for delivering poor standards it is refreshing to know there are still many companies in the private sector that still value what they offer. One such example are Comfort Keepers.

I really applaud the fact that “Comfort Keepers” offer something  a little bit different and that little extra.

They are concentrating on achieving positive outcomes for their clients and not just getting tasks done. This will only enhance the physical and mental well being of the client and allow the carer to feel they are really helping and not just” doing”.

They state that this is their Mission.

“Our mission is to care for each client with the respect and dignity we would provide to a member of our own family. To achieve this mission, we use a distinctive approach to care.”

Comfort Keepers not only ensure that their carers are well trained but they also offer a communication path for family members.

They have a programme called;

Our Family-Connect-Programme

We know how important it is for you to know that your loved one is well. With our unique Family-Connect-Programme, any designated family member can go online to view daily visit updates, accessing real time captured information from anywhere, at anytime. So, you can be sure how your loved one is doing and even share in her special, everyday moments.For a snapshot of activity and progress, we also provide monthly reports upon request.

I personally think this is a lovely touch and very useful idea. It provides peace of mind for family members living at a distance and maintains links.

I also love the fact that Comfort Keepers carers share meal times with the person they are visiting. Eating alone is no fun and often elderly people will eat more when they have company. This has also been proven to be the case with Primary aged children.
