Interactive At Home Care For Seniors In Los Osos, CA
Comfort Keepers take a unique, collaborative approach to at home care for seniors
Comfort Keepers Home Care has a distinctive approach to at home care that we call interactive caregiving. This sort of caregiving helps promote your loved one's sense of independence, activity and purpose.
Interactive caregiving is all about involving your loved one in their own caregiving. Home care for seniors often treats them like passive recipients of care. This helps reinforce the idea that your loved one is not capable of being independent on their own, which, in our day and age - a time when independence and sustainability are very highly valued - is quite negative and can have far-reaching repercussions.
We have found that giving your loved one the opportunity to participate in their at home care has a number of benefits. Interactive caregiving transforms day-to-day at home senior care into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. We believe that home care for seniors should not be about just doing things for your loved one. It should be about finding ways to keep them engaged and actively working on improving their quality of life.
In order to create an interactive caregiving plan for your loved one, we work with them to come up with ways for them to stay more active. We start by explaining the benefits of this sort of caregiving and then move on to trying to understand each client's personality, unique interests, health, and abilities.
Activities that most often take place in interactive at home care include taking a walk with your loved one, doing household chores together, cooking meals, talking about things that interest them, doing crafts or other hobbies your loved one enjoys such as gardening, going to the grocery store or shopping, going to church, or a senior center, but also fun things like dancing.
At the end of the day, home care for seniors should be about helping your loved one get and stay healthy and happy and we believe interactive caregiving does just that. Humans are social animals, but they are also active, working animals. We are always striving for purpose, for a way to know that we are still valued members of society.
