Senior Care in New Haven, MO
Senior care for elders needing assistance in New Haven, Missouri.
New Haven, MO, is a city located in Franklin County, Missouri. When surveyed, 80 percent of its senior citizens said they would prefer help from someone who worked in home care services. For the majority, this is a better option than living in a residential home with 24/7 nursing on call. Some elders are more comfortable in specialized care facilities, and that's fine as long as they're happy. But most people like the idea of staying in their own place if they can.
Seeking in-home services that will be a perfect fit for the needs of your loved one? Comfort Keepers offers a complete range of senior care services for seniors in New Haven, Missouri.
Senior Care in New Haven, MO
One of the specialized services that Comfort Keepers offers to the residents of the New Haven, Missouri area is in-home Alzheimer’s care. The facts on Alzheimer’s are startling: according to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.2 million, or one in nine Americans age 65 and over, are living with Alzheimer’s. These numbers will accelerate as the average age of the Baby Boomer generation goes farther and farther past 65.
Alzheimer’s takes a horrific toll on family caregivers. The Alzheimer’s Association states that nearly 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers experience high or very high levels of emotional stress, and almost 40 percent suffer from depression. This is where Comfort Keepers can help these overburdened family caregivers in two important ways.
Consumed with the needs of a loved one who suffers with Alzheimer’s, the family caregiver simply has no time to deal with his or her personal needs. Comfort Keepers offers respite care services that make it possible for caregivers to take care of errands, go shopping, or just be alone for a little while. Comfort Keepers lets these family caregivers come back refreshed by carefully keeping an eye on their loved ones while they take a well-deserved break!
We at Comfort Keepers understand what Alzheimer’s families are up against and we are committed to helping them. Our unique Interactive Caregiving™ system is the basis of Comfort Keepers’ Alzheimer's care. We use in-depth knowledge of your senior’s likes, dislikes and even their life history to plan activities that can lead to more cogent thinking. These activities are designed to awaken forgotten memories, which can be triggered by reading a favorite old book, listening to their favorite music together, or looking at family photo albums.
Whether you have a loved one suffering with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, or your in-home care needs are a bit more straightforward, Comfort Keepers is here to help. Contact us Comfort Keepers of New Haven, MO today for a free in-home care consultation.
