Services for Elderly Care in Knoxville, TN
Comfort Care provides a range of customized care programs to meet your needs.
Around the House
Bathing, grooming and hygiene
Bathing and showering are the cornerstones of maintaining personal hygiene. Our Comfort Caregivers know the importance of this essential part of everyday life. They will help your family member with every aspect of the process, from running a bath, assistance with movement to the tub, staying close in case of emergency, helping with a partial bath or providing a full bed bath.
We know how proud your aging parent is of their home. Our Comfort Caregivers will make sure it continues to be something they can take pride in. We can help around the house with activities like cleaning up the kitchen, dusting, taking out the trash, cleaning the bathroom as well as vacuuming, changing linens and making the bed.
Sometimes your loved one starts to have trouble keeping up with all the chores in the home. If this is the case, our Comfort Caregivers can help by handling the laundry loads, folding and ironing clothes.
Mobility & Respite Care
Help with mobility issues
Staying active and mobile is important to your senior parent’s health and independence. Our Comfort Caregivers can join your family member on walks and encourage regular exercise.
Transferring and positioning
For those who are less mobile, the simplest task can become quite daunting. Our assisted living caregivers have been specially trained to safely help with transferring your senior parent in and out of bed or in and out of a wheelchair.
Toileting and incontinence
For this highly personal and sensitive situation, our personal caregivers have been trained to assist your family member with the utmost respect, professionalism and sensitivity to privacy. We can perform minimal to full assistance, including incontinence care.
Feeding and special meal preparation
Unintentional weight loss is a common problem for seniors. Feeding assistance, either during or between meals, has been shown to improve daily fluid and food consumption and healthy weight maintenance. Our Comfort Caregivers can prepare meals and provide feeding assistance to a senior or disabled family member.
Live-in services • 24-hour care
Sometimes, a senior needs around the clock care. We can have 3 qualified Comfort Caregivers provide around the clock services to keep your loved one safe and secure in their home.
Respite care or relief for family members
Sometimes you just need a break. Have our number available to call us on a moment’s notice to have a Comfort Caregiver provide services to your loved one when you either need a break or have other pressing engagements that require your presence away from service to the senior.
Companionship & Errands
When your loved one needs someone to reminisce with about past life experiences, personal stories or grandchildren, their in home companion caregiver will be there to provide them with the friendly act of listening.
Incidental transportation services
As part of our companionship care services, incidental transportation is sometimes needed. Our caregivers can help with transportation and accompany your senior parent on errands, doctor’s appointments, or visits with friends and family.
While your caregiver will not be able to administer medications to your loved one or family member, they can ensure medications are taken on time and safely. Careful compliance with medications can help in allowing a senior to stay independent.
Sometimes errands seem like a never ending list of chores. Don’t let these minor inconveniences get in the way of enjoying your independence. Let our caregivers handle those errands for your family member while they spend time in their garden or reading a good book.
Our Comfort Caregiver will be happy to pick up some items for your senior on an incidental basis or make regular grocery shopping a part of their custom care plan.
