Interactive Caregiving™

Personalized, Engaging Senior Care by Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ.

Having the ability to remain in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible is very important for most seniors. Comfort Keepers® can help make this a reality. Our dedicated caregivers, the special people we call Comfort Keepers®, transform day-to-day home care services into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. We call this Interactive Caregiving™

The goal is to improve the quality of life and help seniors to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Examples of Interactive Caregiving™ include working on puzzles, word games, reading, yoga classes, stretching exercises, walks around the neighborhood, trips to the community center and book clubs. Comfort Keepers® still delivers the essential home care services such as light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, companionship, bathing, grooming and feeding; but it is Interactive Caregiving™ that caregivers and clients believe makes all the difference.

When your loved one begins their journey with Comfort Keepers®, our team of professionals will consult with you and other family members to make sure that the proposed plan is indeed the best one for your loved one. We will be with you and your loved one every step of the way. Changes and modifications to this plan can be introduced anytime. Family members can take comfort in knowing their loved one is in the safest hands possible. You can rest assure that your loved one will always receive the care, assistance, and support that Comfort Keepers® is known for both nationally and locally.

Keeping Seniors Engaged and Active

After living an independent life, it can be frustrating and stressful for seniors to realize they no longer have the mobility they once had. To ease these challenges, Comfort Keepers® encourages seniors to take an active role in their care. Our caregivers create physical, mental, and social activities that seniors look forward to doing. We want your loved one to visit friends, solve crossword puzzles, and listen to music. We want your loved one to continue with all the activities that make them the happiest.

By encouraging physical and mental interaction, our seniors gain healthier and more fulfilling lives.

 

Benefits of Interactive Caregiving™:

Comfort Keepers® unique brand of home care, Interactive Caregiving™ operates on four primary principles. Our highly trained caregivers utilize these principles as they care for, engage, and interact with their clients:

 

  • Physical exercise helps seniors reduce the risk of falls, because it conditions and strengthens their muscles. Studies show that exercise is more effective in preventing falls than home modifications.

  • Mental activities like solving puzzles or reminiscing help keep the mind nimble and alert, which fights negative emotions and confusion.

  • Nutritious meals and proper hydration are good for the body and help keep seniors’ minds sharp, too.

  • Home safety is promoted by the companionship of a caregiver and preventive measures, including safety technologies available through Comfort Keepers®.

Interactive Caregiving™ also includes your loved receiving care in activities and conversations. Therefore, rather than simply preparing a meal, our caregiver's will invite your loved one to work in the kitchen side by side while enjoying conversation. Each senior is encouraged to participate in household tasks as is appropriate for their capabilities. This fosters the building of a relationship and continued independence on the part of the care receiver.

Besides sharing in household chores and personal care, Interactive Caregiving™ includes activities that any companion would typically enjoy with a friend. We encourage your loved one to share hobbies, conversation, and activities that they love with their caregivers to increase their emotional well-being and mental state of mind.

Our professional caregivers will even take companionship services beyond the home, escorting your loved one in their care to appointments and events. Your loved one receives reliable transportation and mobility services as needed, but they also enjoy having a friend at their side as they run errands or attend family functions. Leaving the home is safer and more enjoyable with a companion at their side.

Interactive Caregiving™ has few limits. Your loved one may begin reminiscing with their caregiver over old pictures, which may lead to listening to old music that is full of memories. Before you know it, they may even be sharing a dance in the living room.

Our dedicated caregivers, the special people we call Comfort Keepers®, are carefully chosen for their ability to transform the activities they perform into opportunities to communicate and engage with seniors. Each is carefully selected and screened. Our caregivers receive meticulous training on Interactive Caregiving™. Because they are our employees, they are insured, bonded and covered by our workers’ compensation. All to ensure you and your family have peace of mind.

 

An Interactive Caregiving™ plan is created for each senior client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities. This plan will include a variety of activities such as:

  • Working together on household chores.

  • Planning and preparing a meal together.

  • Discussing current events or personal interests.

  • Reminiscing while viewing photo albums.

  • Going for a walk around the neighborhood or at a local park.

  • Working together on hobbies, puzzles, and crafts.

  • Playing board games and card games.

  • Working together on a computer or iPad.

  • Visiting the local senior center.

  • Attending community events.

  • Enjoying and dancing to music.

 

With our Interactive Caregiving™ approach, we are able to raise your loved ones quality of life to a much higher level than with typical home care.

 

The result? A healthier, safer, more fulfilling life for your loved one in the comfort of his or her home.
