Benefits of Homecare
We have many years of experience and expertise in the area of homecare. As we grow older the need to stay safe and happy at home can become even more important. For many people, homecare makes a world of difference to their quality of life.
If you’re reading this then it’s likely that you’re in need of help to either care for yourself or a loved one at home. You’ve arrived at the right place. Homecare is our speciality, no matter what the needs.
Living at home within our communities is what most of us would always choose. Comfort Keepers helps meet some of the challenges so that staying safe and happy at home has the best chance of always being a reality.
Read on to find out more about why you can rely on Comfort Keepers for all your homecare solutions.
The Key Benefits of Homecare
Our mission is to make the lives of those we support easier, richer and more fulfilling by providing care at home. Our primary goals are to maintain:
- Maximum independence at home for those we care for
- Bespoke homecare plans for those we help to look after
- Practical and emotional support those involved in caring
The benefits of homecare do not stop there. For many people, home support workers act as a lifeline and help them to maintain an improved level of wellness in less obvious ways. They do this for the people they care for at home by:
- Improving their ability to move around and stay as fit as possible
- Ensuring optimum nutrition, hydration and adherence to medication
- Maintaining a better level of personal freedom
- Reducing stress and offering companionship
- Taking the load off other family members or friends
- Providing support with all activities of daily living (see list of ADLs below)
You may just need someone to run an errand, to help with housework or for assistance with personal hygiene. However small or large the need for support, our staff can make all the difference.
