About Comfort Keepers of Rochester New York
We have been assisting seniors with home health care services in the Rochester New York area since 2004. There are two reasons why we opened our Comfort Keepers office. First, we love helping people and the rewarding experience that comes with it! It is unbelievable how much we and our Comfort Keepers are appreciated by both our clients and their families. Second, we know how important it is for seniors to remain in their own homes. My own family experienced this first-hand. In 1999, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and was eventually placed in hospice care. He made it clear that it was very important to him to live out the rest of his life in his home that he had lived in for over 40 years. My Mom, sisters and I, along with the hospice care agency, were able to make that wish come true by providing him with around the clock home health care services. We will always be grateful that we were able to do that for him.
The quality of Comfort Keepers' service is a direct reflection of the excellence of our caregivers. Our carefully selected caregivers provide a range of home health care services to clients on a part-time or full-time basis. Before a candidate can become a Comfort Keeper, they are rigorously interviewed and evaluated and extensive background checks are conducted on each potential hire. Each and every Comfort Keeper is our employee and is insured, bonded and covered by Workers' Compensation. This gives our clients and their families peace of mind. In addition, we are committed to ensuring that our caregivers receive essential training to do their jobs to your complete satisfaction.
Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
Our Rochester, NY Comfort Keepers office specializes in Alzheimer's and Dementia care. We have gone through extensive training at the Rochester Alzheimer's Association and have used that knowledge to educate our Caregivers how to effectively care for those with Alzheimer's and Dementia. In addition, several of our Caregivers have been trained at the Alzheimer's Association to become certified Dementia Care Specialists. The Alzheimer's Association utilizes the Dementa Care Specialists to provide respite care for those family caregivers who could use a much needed break.
Our Home Health Care Services Philosophy
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.
