“Peace” of Mind Home Care Solution

 Comfort Keepers September 07, 2015
Staying physically active and engaging the mind is an important part of maintaining a good quality of life for as long as possible, but aging is inevitable, people are living longer. Sooner or later our body and mind changes, we’re no longer able to “keep up” with all the daily chores and activities like we once did.

You may notice that mom always has an excuse why she doesn’t go play Bingo with her friends or Dad no longer walks the dog each morning and evening like he used to enjoy. These are warning signs that a little help around the house may be needed. Besides the physical activity of getting dressed and going out, they are also missing out on the opportunity to visit and socialize with others and keep the brain active.

This is the time to call Comfort Keepers and explore the many care options available to seniors and their families. They offer in-home care, varied levels of assisted living, skilled nursing, respite care, Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia care, end of life care, transitioning home services, interactive caregiving and private duty services and more.

But finding the level of care needed without paying for extra services you don’t need can be a difficult task. Comfort Keepers will come out to your home and do an in-person assessment to see what services and type of caregiver would be a good match and fit for the family member needing assistance.

Our special caregivers, called Comfort Keepers, interact with and engage seniors to help them maintain happy, independent lives, through our Interactive Caregiving™ system which is comprised of four components:
  • An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness and a longer life.
  • A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
  • A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
  • Home safety is promoted by the companionship of a caregiver and preventive measures, including safety technologies available through Comfort Keepers.
Our Comfort Keepers are carefully screened and trained to provide professional, compassionate care. Each care team is carefully selected to meet the need and personality of the client. They perform extensive background and reference checks to ensure top quality, competency and safety for your loved one. Many members of the staff have been with us for 5 to 10 years, and are truly like a second family.

Although caregiving is demanding, it’s also very rewarding, it takes a special person to give of themselves and recognize the reward and privilege it is to care for a person during this stage of their life. The Comfort Keeper’s staff is like a second family, we enjoy our work and share that joy and laughter with our clients.

There’s No Place Like Home
For seniors and other adults, staying in the privacy of their own home, surrounded by cherished belongings and memories, and maintaining a level of independence is most important to them.
Living well encompasses many aspects that can be enhanced by in-home care. These aspects include mental, physical, nutritional, and safety considerations. Whether cooking, playing cards, working on puzzles, or looking at old photos,

Assisted Living Care
If the time comes when it’s no longer safe for you or your loved one to live alone, The Solace Place, our residential care home may be the answer for you. We are dedicated to giving our residents at The Solace Place the care honor, and respect they deserve. We want this to be their home, a place to find solace.

Respite Care
Respite care is a service that is often misunderstood and often under-utilized. It is available to give the caretaker a brief break (respite) from the pressures of caring for a loved one. Whether it be a few hours, or a week, or longer for a much needed vacation, Comfort Keepers respite care provides optimal care and safety for your loved one, and peace of mind for you.

Community Involvement
Comfort Keepers is actively involved in the community. Whether its collecting food for our “Feed Seniors Now” food drive, walking to end Alzheimer’s, or conducting educational seminars for Adult Children of Aging Parents, our Comfort Keepers can be found throughout the community serving the needs of seniors and their families.

Meet the Owner, Sheriolyn Curry
My first experience with home health care came about suddenly in 1991 when it was decided I was the best person to take on the responsibility of caring for my mother. As a long-distance caregiver, I had been talking with her on the phone and was involved in some decision-making, but I had no idea the extent of her needs and health condition; so you can imagine my shock when she arrived in Arizona with an oxygen tank, medications, and a long list of needs.

What did I get myself into? I knew nothing about care giving or senior services and it didn’t take long before I realized I couldn’t do it alone and began looking for some help. I made many phone calls, talked to numerous health professionals, and looked into several home health options before I chose to join the Comfort Keepers family. In 2001, I opened my first Comfort Keepers office. Today we have four territories, serving the Southeast Valley of the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

I had many reasons for choosing Comfort Keepers: their philosophy and mission statement lined up with my beliefs, as well as the way the staff cared for clients as if they were their own family members. Caring for my Mother is what led me to this career but it also taught me, first hand, what a family goes through, the concerns they may have, and how finding the right services to fit their family member’s need is critical to peace of mind for all involved. I use my own experience through those difficulties to make sure another family does not have to experience it themselves. I’m connected with community services, spiritual care (I am an Ordained minister), and all aspects of the care team — offering a complete wrap-around service. My experiences, skills and knowledge puts me in a position to work with families and help them navigate through all the senior care options and choices.

Because I was a caregiver, I offer the unique insight and understanding from all sides, the family’s expectation, the caregiver’s skills, and a loved one’s dignity. I speak from experience when I say to potential clients that I understand the daily challenges of caring for a parent or loved one, while also caring for your own family, a job, and balancing it all. When you’re both family and the caregiver you feel responsible to keep everyone happy, adding even more stress. It’s equally difficult for the family member needing care; as they do not want to be a burden and are trying to maintain their dignity.

I have learned that the guilt and responsibility we carry to properly care for our loved one is not necessarily love but pent up emotions. Our loved ones need quality care and quality time with their family and friends when they are ill or facing an unknown fate. Comfort Keepers provide the quality of care needs, so that you can fulfill the quality of time needs.

By allowing us to provide the care you or your loved ones need, we provide you peace… peace-of-mind solutions for senior care. Call us today. We welcome the opportunity, and would consider it an honor to partner with you to explore care options that meet your specific need and situation.
