Companion Care Services for the Elderly in Sussex
Comfort Keepers are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of elders. Comfort Keepers’ companion care services can help to maintain a social connection for your loved one in several ways:
- Sharing a meal with your loved one
- Accompanying them or helping them to enjoy their favourite pastimes again
- Engaging them in everyday activities in the home
- Taking your loved one out to a local event or to see friends and family
What is included in your Companion Care Services?
As part of our Companionship Care Services we prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many elders do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps elders get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
We help our clients with their household laundry as part of the home care services which can be done in either the client’s home or the Launderette and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Comfort Keepers involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Comfort Keepers light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out rubbish), straightening all rooms, organizing wardrobes and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. Comfort Keepers does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
Our Comfort Keepers’ shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Comfort Keepers will use any coupons provided.
Comfort Keepers provides transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Getting elders out and about is good for their mind, body and spirit—and an integral part of Comfort Keepers’ Interactive Caregiving®.
Although Comfort Keepers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed as part of our list of elder care services. Comfort Keepers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
Comfort Keepers will assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other dressing tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance.
