Learn about our experienced at home caregivers & trademarked Interactive Caregiving™ methods
Improving the quality of a senior’s life should be the primary goal of any senior care service. Researchers have established that physical support is necessary for the well-being of a senior who needs them. However, it has also been found that if the emotional and components of the senior’s life are not met, the impact of whatever care they receive will be reduced. Many home health care agencies still do not take the research findings into consideration when they take on clients. So, while a lonely senior may be glad that a caregiver did the laundry and helped them with bathing, if rendered without compassion and care or some degree of personal interaction, then the caregiver would have overlooked the real needs of the senior.
How Interactive Caregiving Impacts Senior Care
Interactive Caregiving is a model of home care is a trademark of Comfort Keepers. The goal of the method is to improve the quality of a senior’s life while working to maintain their independence, dignity and self-esteem. Interactive caregiving places focus on the senior rather than the physical tasks associated with caregiving. At home caregivers address the physical challenges the senior might be facing, but they also build a personal relationship with them to deal with the emotional, social, and cognitive functions of the senior. This personal relationship helps to create an impactful senior care experience.
The Interactive Caregiving model is designed to fit each unique senior, since no two seniors are the same. The senior receives a personalized care plan that takes their uniqueness and personal care into consideration, in a meaningful way, of course. Our at home caregivers are dedicated to learning about what your senior loved one likes or dislikes, what they are passionate about, and how they want things done. For example, having someone who helps you wash clothes is good, but if they don’t do it the way you like, that could lead to problems. The same could be said for activities like games, activities, conversations, and daily interaction.
Overall, this means that Interactive Caregiving goes further than the tasks that it deals with the interpersonal parts of the senior’s life. The at home caregivers at Comfort Keepers are after what makes the senior laugh, what gives them joy.
