Seniors can employ the services of a caregiver solely for companionship. Even so, companion care is often part of a more encompassing service. These may include things like the following:
Light Housekeeping including laundry
Running errands such as picking up prescriptions, dry cleaners, etc
Feeding pets, walking the dog
Meal preparation and special diets
The Importance Of Companionship
Younger people don't have to think about social interaction as they go about their busy lives. But when it slips away, loneliness can creep in and gradually take hold. Too many seniors today suffer in silence.
For this reason, Comfort Keepers of Cumberland, MD, incorporate companion care into our home care-giving solutions. Over time, warm, personal relationships often develop between our Comfort Keepers and their clients. We now know the lack of social engagement can lead to depression and even cognitive decline
Custom and compassionate services for those in need of dementia care or Alzheimer's care from a professional agency
We are delighted to be able to offer our elderly clients with the finest in both Alzheimer's care and dementia care. We have worked hard to create care plans that have been designed to make it possible for your loved ones to continue living with you in the family home rather than spend their golden years in a nursing home or assisted living facility. There was a time when being diagnosed with virtually any form of dementia in seniors resulted in the person being left to the care of an impersonal nursing home. Today, we can offer care services that are specifically tailored to meet your loved one's needs that will make it possible for them to stay with you at home.
Our Caregivers Understand How to Care for Those with Alzheimer's Disease
We have assembled a team of expert caregivers who have all received highly specialized training in providing customized care for those who are suffering from the many forms of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. This training includes understanding the condition and the resulting loss of cognitive abilities and memory. Our Alzheimer's care and dementia care programs cover things like providing for the safety and security of your loved ones. We also offer the latest safety equipment from SafetyChoice® to assist your loved ones and keep them safe when they are alone.

The Types Of 24 Hour Home Care
Each person and their situation are unique. It's why people need different types, levels, and quantity of care. We use two or three highly-trained caregivers who work in shifts for our 24-hour plans. This approach avoids burnout and provides clients with 24/7 support from fresh alert carers.
We tailor senior full-time or part-time plans so that they provide the exact type of care the person needs. Our Comfort Keepers can help with domestic chores, running errands, and driving services if it's part of the plan. We can also provide more intimate care like feeding, toileting, bathing, grooming, transferring & positioning, etc.
