Enjoy the Simple Pleasures
Comforting Hands Senior Care provides help with daily activities, enabling you to save your energy for the important things in life, such as, spending quality time with family and relatives, connecting with friends, taking short walks, or just reading a good book.
Reconnect with Loved Ones
While Comforting Hands Senior Care cannot replace the support of a loving family, who are often far away or simply unavailable, we can provide helpful services that reduce difficult and/or stressful aspects of daily life.
Many times, caring for a senior involves family. Constant family caregiving can bring about considerable stress. We provide a respite for the primary family caregiver, (i.e., a spouse caring for spouse, or a son or daughter caring for his or her parents), offering relief with daily routines and strengthening relationships.
Other benefits we offer the families of the Senior:
We can alleviate the need to juggle their careers, their immediate family’s needs and taking care of their elderly loved one.
Less Guilt and Resentment
Most family caregivers feel guilty because they feel like they aren’t doing enough. Caregiving assistance allows many people to feel like they are providing more than they could personally, and it eliminates much of the resentment they feel.
More Quality Time
They spend more time on what’s really important to them and their loved one, rather than doing tasks that someone else could be doing.
A Better Relationship with Their Aging Parent
Because they aren’t the ones doing all the work, they usually are able to spend much more quality time with their loved one. They can visit and connect, rather than visiting and working.
Less Financial Burden
Comforting Hands Senior Care provides an affordable and caring solution for the busy family that is far less than the cost of paying for institutions or other options. It’s even less than caring for their loved one by themselves, when you count the opportunity costs (for instance, the loss hours of work) and the costs associated with stress.
The net result is your ability to relax and enjoy your life in familiar surroundings as long as possible. It’s often the little things in life that are missed, but sometimes we need them the most. Companionship and human interaction are among the most important client benefits we provide. You and your loved ones deserve to have what we offer.
