How Home Health Agencies Make a Difference?

An Interactive Caregiving plan is created for each senior client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities. Our care plans are much different than other home health agencies and include a variety of activities such as
- walks in the neighborhood.
- preparing a meal.
- discussing current events or personal interests.
- reminiscing while viewing photo albums.
- working on hobbies, puzzles or crafts.
- going shopping or to church.
- visiting a local senior center.
- participating in civic group activities.
- dancing to music.
Each Comfort Keepers® home health agency delivers essential personal care, companionship, and homemaker services that help seniors live happily at home, like other in-home care providers. However, with our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.
The result? A healthier, safer, more fulfilling life for your loved one in the comfort of his or her home.

Benefits of Interactive Caregiving
Professional home health agencies can be an effective way to enable seniors to remain in their homes while receiving the help they need to be safe, healthy and independent. An essential element of effective in-home care is interactive caregiving that provides the emotional well-being that is vital to increasing quality of life. Seniors can benefit in many ways from comprehensive care that incudes interactive caregiving intended to meet physical, emotional, and social needs.
Interactive care includes the home health agency encouraging the senior to participate in activities and conversations. Therefore, rather than simply preparing a meal and setting it before the person receiving care, the caregiver will invite them to work in the kitchen side by side while enjoying conversation. This fosters the building of a relationship and continued independence on the part of the care receiver.
Besides sharing in personal care, interactive caregiving includes activities that any companion would typically enjoy with a friend. Seniors are encouraged to share hobbies, conversation, and activities that they love with their caregivers to increase their emotional well-being and mental state of mind.
Caregivers will even take companionship services beyond the home, escorting the senior in their care to appointments and events. The senior receives reliable transportation and mobility services provided by their home health agency, 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 care has few limits. Caregivers may begin reveling with their senior over old pictures, which could 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.
For care that has the potential to truly optimize the quality of life for your loved one, choose interactive care that considers every aspect of senior life and well-being.
