Interactive Caregiving Improves Senior Living in Bolivar, TN
Learn how Interactive Caregiving improves senior living and the quality of life.
Comfort Keepers senior care is designed to improve the quality of a senior's life while enabling them to safely remain in the comfort and convenience of their own home. While the physical supports necessary for this to occur are important, researchers have found that the overall impact on a senior's quality of life may be reduced or even negated unless the social and emotional components of their life are also addressed. Interactive caregiving is Comfort Keepers trademarked model of senior living and care. Through interactive caregiving, caregivers take the focus off physical tasks and place it on the senior receiving the supports.
Interactive Caregiving starts by developing a personal relationship with the senior. Caregivers take the time to get to know the senior on a personal level. Then, they draw them into their own care through meaningful social, emotional, and cognitive interaction. By addressing the whole senior and not just daily physical challenges, caregivers are able to improve a senior's quality of life while maximizing their independence, self-esteem, and dignity.

Traditional supports still range from light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation to medication management and personal care, but through Comfort Keepers interactive caregiving model, the focus is on senior living and not the tasks. This way, your loved one not only has the daily living assistance they need, but they will also be fully engaged, refreshed, and mentally stimulated.
