Caregivers can help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming and hygiene assistance. Comfort Keepers® respect the dignity and self-esteem of each senior client, even when providing toileting and incontinence care. Seniors feel respected as caregivers work to lessen their embarrassment with compassion and sensitivity.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible for improved physical and mental health. There are many physical health benefits of mobility assistance, including lowering blood pressure, improved digestion and sleep, increased energy and stamina, and a strengthened heart. Through Comfort Keepers mobility assistance, seniors’ moods and mental alertness can be improved, and seniors have a healthy opportunity to release stress.
Personal senior care also includes transferring and positioning senior clients to and from chairs and beds. By using proven techniques, caregivers reduce the risk of pressure areas on the senior’s skin, encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination and reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles. Proper posture position promotes safety and health and maintains proper functioning of many of the body’s systems.
Many seniors have been prescribed special diets, but they have difficulty maintaining the diets on their own. Through feeding care, caregivers can help seniors maintain special diets, as well have the opportunity to spend quality time together sharing a meal.

In general, Comfort Keepers enable seniors to eat a well-balanced diet to promote active living, disease prevention, healing and healthful living.
Comfort Keepers can also help seniors with their medications. While caregivers are not permitted to directly administer medication, they can help seniors by reminding them at the right medication time and by reading the small print on pill boxes. In the United States, 30% of hospital admissions of seniors over the age of 65 are a direct result of failing to properly take medication. With personal care services from Comfort Keepers, seniors will be better able to stay in control of their medical conditions.
