Comfort Keepers® Releases Quality of Life Guide
Handbook Helps Seniors Stay Safe and Enjoy Independence at Home
IRVINE, California, Aug. 21, 2018 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // -- Comfort Keepers®, a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for seniors and other adults needing care, is releasing a resource guide to help families take steps that make it possible for seniors to continue living independently in their own homes.
"Moment by Moment: A Practical Guide to Helping Seniors Enjoy the Best Quality of Life at Home" is a comprehensive handbook that contains information and resources that can aid seniors and their families as they confront the realities of aging-in-place. The guide includes detailed research, touching personal stories, resources, and activities that provide families with a clear picture of how to help their loved ones prepare for the pivotal life moments that can impact a senior's ability to remain in their home.
"As one of the nation's largest home care agencies, we know that there are so many episodes, big and small, that can cause families to worry about the ability of a senior to remain in their home," said Saudia Gajadhar, U.S. Director of Marketing at Comfort Keepers. "This guide is designed to help families plan for those moments so that they have options to ensure those they love can continue to not only live where they want but to also experience the quality of life they so deserve."
"Moment by Moment" takes readers through the most common issues they're likely to encounter as they help a senior maintain independent living, from issues such as problems maintaining the home or driving safely, to activities of daily living such as dressing, grooming, paying bills, and taking medication. For each topic covered, readers have access to videos, blog posts, discussion guides, and other resources that can help.
"For many seniors, there truly is no place like home," Gajadhar said. "And while aging in place is the overwhelming preference for seniors, the challenges of day-to-day tasks can sometimes drive families to unnecessarily seek help in off-site facilities or assisted living communities. But there are cost-effective alternatives that can supplement family care, like in-home care, that preserves independence and empowerment."
