I Need A Christian Companion to Take Care of my Elderly Parent

What is Companion Care for the Elderly? Companion Care for the Elderly includes light housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, running errands, bathing, driving, reminding you to take your medication, and being a companion. Being isolated as a senior can lead to loneliness and depression. As one ages, their ability to go out and socialize becomes extremely limited. With a companion, they know that they are not alone and that they have somebody to talk to. Our companions will engage you in friendly conversations, eat meals with you, and even play games. Do you have hobbies that you enjoy? Our caregivers would love to have the opportunity to learn about what you or your loved one does to pass the time. We want to engage in activities that our clients enjoy and incorporate them into stimulating activities. Companions also have the ability to drive you or your loved one to church, the grocery store, or to a social outing. Our extensive background checks ensure that the caregiver’s driving record is squeaky clean. Companions are also there to make sure that the house is being kept clean and organized. Having a clean home promotes peace of mind and an organized, stress-free way of living. Our companions will work with you to ensure that your home is an oasis.

I Need a Cooking Service for My Elderly Parent

As a person ages, their dietary needs change and their medication can sometimes limit what they are able to put into their system. Not all nutrients can be absorbed as easily into an elderly person's bodies and the nutrients that they need change as they age. Our caregivers are able to create a well-balanced menu that is best for you or your loved one. It can also become more and more difficult to be able to cook for oneself. Loss of appetite often occurs due to reduced sense of taste. Our caregivers are equipped to help with cooking food that is best for the health and well-being of you or your loved one. We are able to go to the grocery store and pick out the meals best suited for you. We involve you in choosing what meals you want to eat, so there will not be a time when you are without a say.

Personal Home Safety Assistance for the Elderly

Living alone can be scary in and of itself. Worrying about your loved ones safety is a natural reaction to them living at home. Our caregivers can do an evaluation of our client’s house to ensure that all of the proper safety precautions are in place, such as smoke detectors and security alarms. If additional needs come about, we constantly update the evaluation. Christian Companion Senior Care wants to provide you and your family peace of mind when it comes to making sure your loved one is safe and secure in their own home.

Bathing Showering, Grooming, and Personal Hygiene Assistance for Elderly

Our caregivers want our clients to feel and look their very best. Keeping up with daily hygiene routines is essential to this. However, showers and tubs can be a treacherous place for elderly people. Our companions are trained on how to properly assist and/or bathe elderly people. Reduced sense of sight and smell can limit a senior’s ability to acknowledge whether or not they need to be bathed; sometimes, they never notice. Sometimes, their fear of slipping and falling while bathing or difficulty in trying to get in and out of the shower or tub can hinder their desire to bathe themselves. Another reason that elderly people don’t bathe or shower is simple because they have forgotten to do so. The days go by and begin to run together. Our companions keep records of everything that occurs when they are at the client’s home. This ensures that no task is left undone. Christian Companion Senior Care caregivers endure thorough background checks so that you can be at ease in knowing that you or your loved one is in good hands.
In addition to bathing, our caregivers can also assist in grooming and combing hair. We want all of our clients to feel sharp. Looking good can make you feel good; we want to help you do exactly that.

At Home Care and Light Housekeeping Services for Seniors

Keeping up with the household is a full-time job in and of itself. We know how challenging it can be. Household tasks that were once easy to complete can be a challenge to endure. Our caregivers offer light housekeeping services that will help relieve your stress. We work with you to ensure that the food in your house has not spoiled. Additionally, we can help vacuum, dust, sweep, take out garbage and recycling, do laundry, change bed linens, and thoroughly clean appliances to ensure that there is no build-up of oil or grease, preventing potential kitchen fires. Keeping a clean and organized home helps reduce stress and promote peace of mind. It can also eliminate the obstacles that might be hindering your ability to move freely through your home. Additionally, our companions can assist with taking care of your pets through daily walks, grooming, feeding, and even trips to the veterinarian. Our goal is to help you or your loved one stay happy and healthy through every activity that we do. Your well-being is of the upmost importance to us.

Benefits of Exercise for the Elderly

As a person ages, their desire and ability to exercise diminishes. Many studies have shown that moderate physical activity has great benefits for elderly people. Lack of motivation is usually the key reason seniors don’t engage in physical activity. Moderate exercise includes activities such as walking and possibly stair walking. These exercises can help reduce fracturing bones and the likelihood of having a fall. Also, exercise can help reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety and improve mood. Muscle strength and stamina also see boosts of improvement through light to moderate exercise. Hypertension can be greatly reduced through physical activity. We want to make sure that you or your loved one maintains healthy joints, muscles, and bones. Our caregivers are here to help remind our clients to be active and motivate them through the entire process.
