Elder Care and Senior Safety In Oreland, PA
Your loved one's safety is a vital part of Comfort Keepers elder care plans
The chances are good that if your elderly parents continue to insist on living in their home, there will come a time when they will need a little extra help. Here at Comfort Keepers of Oreland, PA we offer the finest caregivers in the nation and the most flexible and customizable elder care plans available. But we are also very conscious of the fact that no care plan is perfect and there are risks that need to be discussed with our clients.
The biggest risk to your loved ones is the times when they are at home without a caregiver or family member with them. According to research, the vast majority of accidents and emergency medical incidents occur during the time when seniors are at home alone. If the person has no way to reach out for help, it could be hours before they are found. This can only take a bad situation and make it far worse.
The home your loved ones live in also poses a potential risk in several ways. When an elderly person starts having trouble keeping their house clean, it doesn't take long for piles of stuff to start building up, creating tripping hazards. Our caregivers keep these piles cleaned up and work with your loved ones to prevent them. They also look for things like clogged gutters, missing roof shingles, replace HVAC filters, and let you know when climate control systems are malfunctioning, so you can have them repaired.
