In-Home Personal Care by Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ.
As we get older, our mental and physical capabilities naturally decline. For those with recent injuries or debilitating illnesses, these effects may be greater. You or a loved one may be having trouble with everyday tasks—like bathing, getting dressed, or moving around the house. If this is the case, we can help you retain your comfort and dignity and perform all necessary tasks and activities. Our certified home health aides can help you maintain an independent, high-quality, and safe lifestyle in the comfort of your own home.

How Comfort Keepers® Can Help?
Bathing, Grooming, and Personal Hygiene:
People bathe daily for different reasons. Some see it as part of a morning routine. Others see it as a way to refresh or relax. Regardless of the reason why one bathes, taking a bath or shower is an important part of life. Instead of abandoning personal hygiene and grooming routines, seniors can enlist a certified home health aide from Comfort Keepers®. We come right to your residence, whether it is a house, apartment, assisted living center or any place you call home. We will supervise or take an active role in bathing, depending on the level of care required. All of our certified home health aides are trained to make the bathing experience enjoyable and comfortable.
Oral hygiene is an extremely important part of any personal home care plan. Many times, the first signs of an illness or disease are found in the month. Ignored for too long, a lack of dental care can result in overall poor health, lost teeth and other serious troubles. Our certified home health aides are trained to make sure elders are brushing their teeth and taking care of their oral health.
Cleanliness is only half of our personal care service. Our certified home health aides help seniors dress and style their hair. With personal care in home care services from Comfort Keepers®, seniors look and feel their best.
Just because you want to stay in your home doesn’t mean you never want to get out. If mobility issues or other problems are preventing you or an older family member from leaving the house, let Comfort Keepers® help with our personal care services.
We assist seniors by running errands and transporting them as needed.
If you have no specific destination in mind, a certified home health aide can go for a walk or visit a local park. Getting out and about is very beneficial, both physically and mentally. Kept cooped up indoors, seniors can become depressed, develop high blood pressure and increase the likelihood of heart troubles.
Seniors who are unable to head outside can engage in light exercise with our certified home health aides. We’ll make sure you stay active without straining yourself or risking injury. Stay healthy and active with mobility assistance from Comfort Keepers®.
Positioning and Transferring
Individuals who spend long periods in wheelchairs or beds face several problems. Extended stretches of time in one place can lead to bedsores, muscle aches and atrophy. It can also hamper breathing and digestion. With Comfort Keepers®, these risks are greatly reduced as are the risks of moving to or from chairs, wheelchairs and beds. Our certified home health aides are trained in proper lifting and transferring techniques. We even use Hoyer lifts when necessary to ensure you are always moved safely and comfortably.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Adult or child, bathroom issues are often cause for embarrassment. For seniors living alone, toileting issues or incontinence can lead to serious health complications. While odd smells are what usually get noticed, skin infections and other medical problems often lurk out of sight. Our sensitive certified home health aides understands the many issues surrounding toileting problems. Under our register nurse, an effective home care plan is established. Once in place, this plan of care ensures seniors are spared embarrassment and maintain their self-esteem.
Incontinence and other toileting troubles are surprisingly common.
Comfort Keepers® has helped many elders regain their dignity. Do not be afraid to ask for assistance. The worst thing you can do is be too embarrassed to seek help. Enacting a plan of care for bathroom and incontinence issues is an important part of keeping healthy.
Feeding and Special Diet
Proper nutrition is of the utmost importance from the moment of birth through all of life’s stages. As we age, keeping a healthy, balanced diet can become an issue. Missing meals or becoming deficient in any vitamins or minerals has serious repercussions for the elderly.
Make sure you or your loved one has a healthy diet with Comfort Keepers®.
Our certified home health aides prepare nutritious meals to make sure seniors get the nourishment they need. If you have a special diet or dietary restrictions for personal or religious reasons, you can count on our staff to make delicious, healthy meals meeting your requirements.
Meal time is about more than just eating. The shared experience of eating with another person is one of the highlights of being human. With our care services, you don’t just get a healthy meal, you also get a meal companion. After preparing your food, your caregiver will sit down and eat with you, providing conversation and companionship you can’t get anywhere else.
