In Home Care For Seniors in Sioux Falls, SD
Offering customizable in home care for seniors to meet their unique needs
Every client has unique in home care needs and situations, so each agency office offers a full range of care for seniors to provide seniors with the right amount of support for independent living at home.
Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
We provide in home care for seniors that focuses on hygiene and cleanliness in order to help our clients feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our care experts are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain a lifestyle with as much activity as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. We can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Our senior care providers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our elder care helpers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, we help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our care experts understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, Comfort Keepers will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Conversation and Companionship
In home care for seniors provides clients companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Caregivers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our care assistants will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their care providers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. Our in home care for seniors includes vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Please be advised that our home helpers do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Your caregiver will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. We will use any coupons provided.
Our in home care experts can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Although home helpers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our home healthcare associates can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.
Depending on the client’s needs, we can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time care for seniors. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
