Age in Place With Elderly

serving Pocatello, ID

In-Home Help & Assistance

Comfort Home Care provides help for senior citizens here in Pocatello, ID. Our senior in-home care services range from socialization to transportation to meal preparation and more. We understand that elder care assistance can make a significant difference both for a patient and their family. It can be tough knowing when your elderly loved one needs help with their day-to-day tasks. Some signs that it may be time for additional support include:
  • Forgetfulness: Perhaps the most traditional sign of aging. Struggling to remember names and relationships often means a patient is at risk of forgetting important medications, whether or not a stove is on, or other safety hazards, and is a clear sign it’s time to get a bit of extra help.
  • Trouble getting up: Muscles weaken with age; if your loved one is struggling to get in and out of bed or in and out of chairs, a little extra support can go a long way.
  • Expired food in the home: When managing expiration dates or staying on top of which food items were purchased first becomes difficult, some assistance may be in order.
  • Mood swings: Confusion can become a large part of life as a patient experiences memory loss, and this can lead to moodiness. Mood swings can also indicate general frustration at a loss of some functionality that comes with age. Helping your loved one be as independent as possible while providing necessary support may help with emotional struggles as well.
  • Cluttered home: Age can make tidying increasingly difficult as mobility decreases.
If you notice these or other signs that an elderly family member may need a little extra help, our team of compassionate caregivers can help. We understand that this season of life can be challenging and many people find themselves denying the reality of elderly life; however, providing adequate support for your loved ones is the kind thing to do. Comfort Home Care offers an affordable option for patients who have reached a point where in-place home care would benefit them.

Veterans Home Care Program: Benefits of At-Home Care

There is a special place in our hearts for those who have served in the military, and we are eager to provide home health care for our veterans. We are passionate about keeping our veterans safe in their homes. Having a caretaker who can stop by several times throughout the day can offer socialization, medication management help, and peace of mind for family members who are concerned about their loved one’s health and safety.

At Comfort Home Care, we understand how difficult it can be to navigate an elderly loved one aging, and the challenging decision of discerning when it’s time to call in professional help, whether you choose a nursing home or assisted living facility. These resources can be prohibitively expensive, and many senior citizens prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible.
Our services in Pocatello, ID, bridge the gap and provide home help for seniors when they need a bit of help but want to maintain their independence. From oral and personal hygiene to medication management or meal preparation help, our team of compassionate caregivers can be the difference you need to have peace of mind that your loved one will be well-taken care of.
