Our New Albany Comfort Keepers develop a personalized plan of care for each client to ensure complete satisfaction.
Every client has unique care needs and situations, which is why Comfort Keepers® offers a full range of in-home companionship and personal care services throughout New Albany, Indiana and northern Kentucky. We are focused on providing the highest level of care so seniors can enjoy the right amount of support for independent living at home.
Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Comfort Keepers® helps seniors feel confident about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, promote relaxation and stimulate circulation. Our Comfort Keepers® are trained to make personal care a positive experience. We eliminate any embarrassment or discomfort your loved one might feel.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of mobility, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. Comfort Keepers® can accompany our clients on short walks and provide reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Comfort Keepers® are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our Comfort Keepers® work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, Comfort Keepers® help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our Comfort Keepers® understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers® will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes.
Conversation and Companionship
Our Comfort Keepers® provide companionship and stimulating conversation for all clients. This social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life. It also helps our Comfort Keepers® get to know clients on a personal level so we can assist with other daily tasks to their satisfaction.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Comfort Keepers® can prepare hot meals based on our clients’ preferences to help them get the nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our Comfort Keepers® will tend to the laundry either at our clients’ homes or at a laundry facility. We do everything from washing and drying to folding, ironing and putting clothing away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often, seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which helps them feel like they are part of daily routines. This also gives seniors more control over the specific way their home is cleaned. Our Comfort Keepers® can perform a variety of tasks, which include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Please be advised that Comfort Keepers® do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Comfort Keepers® will shop for groceries at our clients’ favorite stores throughout New Albany, Indiana or northern Kentucky. We take special care to purchase brands as requested and can also pick up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers® will use any coupons provided.
Our Comfort Keepers® can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping, attend social activities, visit the barbershop or beauty salon, or get to medical appointments. Getting a senior out and about is good for the mind, body, and spirit.
Although Comfort Keepers® cannot administer medications, we can pick up prescriptions, monitor recommended medication schedules and help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Opening tricky medication containers and reading the fine print on labels is a breeze with our Comfort Keepers® on your side.
Our Comfort Keepers® can provide care for any amount of time, whether your loved one needs only a few hours a week or full-time home health care. New Albany, Indiana and northern Kentucky residents can enjoy the independence and comfort of living in their own homes with the same great standard of care they would receive from a skilled nursing home. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of Comfort Keepers® coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families full-time peace of mind.
