Interactive Home Health Care Services in Pittsburgh, PA
Dependable, compassionate Interactive Caregiving™ & home health care services for seniors in the Pittsburgh area.
Research shows that seniors who reside in their own homes for as long as possible tend to live longer and happier lives. Sadly, many seniors cannot continue to reside in their homes without help. Physical pain, loss of mobility, decreased cognitive functions, and a plethora of other ailments plague seniors and they need support in order to stay safe and independent. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control, most seniors over 65 years of age require assistance in at least one area of their daily life. These numbers climb drastically as seniors enter their 70s.
Pittsburgh, PA Home Health Care Services
Comfort Keepers provides the support and assistance that allows seniors to continue to age in place even when family caregivers are not available or can no longer provide the extent of support that the senior needs. Comfort Keepers is not just any senior care service, however. They have perfected and trademarked a unique system of care that goes beyond traditional supports called Interactive Caregiving.
Our home health care services blend standard daily living task support with whole-person engagement. By drawing the senior into their own caregiving, not only are their physical needs being met, but the cognitive, social, and emotional parts of their life are also being addressed. In this method of care, a senior's quality of life is the top priority. They are the focus and not the tasks being performed.
To be successful, caregivers must get to know the senior on a personal level. They spend time learning what makes them tick. Many times, just having somebody show an interest makes a significant difference, but the care does not stop there – that is just the beginning. Once a caregiver finds out what a senior is passionate about, they find ways to bring those passions into the caregiving realm. This could involve music, dance, painting, walks through the yard or neighborhood, gardening, and so forth.
By involving high interest items in the caregiving, seniors are encouraged to play and active role in their home health care services. Seniors who are active tend to find more enjoyment in life. Having somebody to share experiences with has been found to be just as important. Many seniors who will not walk alone will do so with caregivers. Seniors who stopped painting will take it up again when they have somebody to discuss their art with.
In short, most seniors have lived exciting, active lives. It can be devastating to find themselves alone or isolated later in life. Having somebody to share stories with, relive old memories, make new memories, and promote cognitive, social, and physical activity can help to peg out their joy meter. This is what our home health care services are all about.
