What Does it Take to Be a Comfort Keeper?
If you have a caring, loving spirit and like to take an active role in helping others, you possess key characteristics that are essential to being a Comfort Keeper home health care provider.
The role of a Comfort Keeper is to help make someone's life better and help them stay or become independent and proud of living the life they want to lead. At the core of this are activities of daily living. But Comfort Keepers home caregivers take this beyond the essentials of light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and other non-medical care. A Comfort Keeper is a caring home health aide that seeks to elevate the spirit of older adults through personal care that builds a connection. We call this Interactive Caregiving.
Yes, Comfort Keepers are there to help with activities of daily living. Senior living often requires in-home caregivers to assist those seniors meal preparation, do light housekeeping and chores around the house and take care of everything else they need to stay independent — like medication reminders.

This could include cooking favorite recipes together, reminiscing over old photos, visiting friends or attending community events, continuing favorite hobbies, taking a walk, doing puzzles.
