Learn more about our loving senior care in Royal Oak, MI
Senior care experts often warn that isolation can cause harmful health side effects for aging seniors. In fact, of the 11 million seniors in the United States who live alone, many experience issues with high blood pressure, mental illness, increased risk of long-term illness and other problems associated with isolation. If you are concerned your loved one may be at risk, Comfort Keepers in Royal Oak, MI may be able to help. We offer personalized care plans to fit the individual needs of each client we serve and companionship care services to limit loneliness and isolation whenever possible.
When you begin working with us, our senior care experts will assess how often your loved one will require care based on their physical limitations, living circumstances, health concerns and many other factors. Each client will also receive an Interactive Caregiving plan as part of their care services. This means that each senior client will participate in physical and social activity to the best of their abilities at levels recommended by their own doctors and therapists. For seniors struggling with isolation, social activities can include conversation with their caregiver, sharing memories, playing games, visiting Hudson Park for a picnic and much more. Your caregiver will spend time getting to know your loved one in order to form a strong bond which can develop into friendship and even a familial relationship over time. Many of our clients state that their caregivers are their closest confidantes.
Our senior care experts also work to stay aware of activities, events and opportunities for seniors outside the home. Our organization makes it a priority to stay engaged with organizations, agencies and groups that provide outlets for seniors to socialize in the greater Royal Oak community. Some of these organizations include the Royal Oak Community Center, Leo Mahany / Harold Meininger Senior Community Center and Royal Oak Public Library. Any senior client who wishes to take part in these activities will also be provided transportation by one of our care aides if requested. Your loved one’s caregiver can arrive early to help him or her prepare for the day and ensure he or she arrives and returns safely and on time. This allows seniors to feel more confident about leaving the house to participate in activities they may enjoy.
