A Holistic Approach To Elder Care Planning

We understand that elder care planning can be overwhelming. We want to help you make the best possible plan for your senior loved ones. Our caregivers take a holistic approach to senior care that focuses on keeping your senior loved ones strong physically and mentally – all in an effort to help prevent hospitalization down the road. Our long term care plans encompass things like:

 

Physical Wellness

Staying active is important for staying healthy. Our experienced caregivers will help your loved ones find fun activities that will keep them moving. They can help with exercise, as well as with household tasks like re-organizing the house and getting up and walking.

 

Diet is another important part of physical wellness. A home health aide can assist your loved ones with meal planning and preparation, shopping for food, and cooking. They also can provide companionship and conversation at mealtimes which is also important.

 

Another way our senior caregivers help with physical wellness is to assist with medications management and ensure that daily medication reminders are in place so that your senior loved one will always know when it’s time to take their prescription. Caregivers can supervise medication times to make sure that the medication is taken on time.

Emotional Wellness

Emotional wellness and happiness matters too. Staying at home and being independent is important to many seniors. Having a long term caregiver who can provide friendship and care is the best way to give your senior loved one the quality of life they deserve. Even though having discussions about elder care planning is difficult, our compassionate team at Comfort Keepers of Lake Havasu City is here to help you create a plan that will keep your senior loved ones at home, equipping them to lead independent lifestyles for as long as possible.
