How to Get Started with Care for Your Loved One
Information on receiving homecare services for your senior loved one
If you want to start talking to your loved one about home care, you need to know that both you and your senior have a lot of homecare services to choose from
When you decide to work with Comfort Keepers of Fairfield, CA, our representatives will schedule an in-home consultation in order to find out as much as possible about your loved one. Members of our staff will talk not only to your loved one but you and any other family members as well, so we can understand better what level of care your senior requires.
During this visit we want to learn about your loved one’s health condition, living situation, as well as their preferences, wishes, likes and dislikes. You and other family members are more than welcome to share some valuable input with us.
With all of that vital information in mind, we will start building a personalized plan tailored to your loved one’s needs. If needed, we will also suggest some adjustments to your loved one’s home in order to provide them with the safest possible living environment. This so-called fall proofing of the house might include everything from removing clutter so your parent can move freely around the house, installing handrails and grab bars, securing rugs to rearranging small furniture.
When you and your loved one are fully satisfied with our care plan, we will match your loved one with our dedicated caregivers who are experienced and skilled to provide your loved one with the best care possible. We also make sure that our clients and caregivers are compatible in terms of personality, so they can easily get along.
Comfort Keepers provides a wide range of homecare services, so your loved one’s care plan can easily be adjusted at any point. We will also reassess their care plan every six months to make sure your loved one get’s the highest level of care possible.
Even with homecare services, you can be included in your loved one’s care as much as you see fit. You can decide whether you want to be the primary caregiver and opt for part-time or even respite care, or let us take care of your parent on a full-time basis.
In either case, we will provide you with updates on your loved one’s condition on a daily basis thus giving you a peace of mind knowing that your loved one is safe and happy.
