According to the US census, 12 to 15 percent of seniors over the age of 65 who live in and around Scarborough, Maine, live alone. Many of these seniors require help with daily living tasks in order to remain safe and continue to live independently. For some seniors, a few hours of assistance a week allow them to maintain their freedom and lifestyle of choice. Others require significantly more care, up to and even including 24-hour care and supervision.
Comfort Keepers provides individually tailored in-home care for seniors in Scarborough and the surrounding areas of Falmouth, Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Saco, Biddeford, Kennebunk, and Wells. From light housekeeping and laundry to local transportation, meal preparation, and medication management support, Comfort Keepers caregivers ensure seniors live a healthy lifestyle in the comfort and convenience of their own home. For seniors who require slightly more care and assistance, personal care (eating, toileting, bathing, grooming, dressing) is available.
In Scarborough, Comfort Keepers also specializes in dementia and Alzheimer's support, hospital to home transition assistance, respite care, and end of life care.
Of course, seniors who live alone are not the only ones who may need in-home care and support. An accident, sudden illness, or the recovery from a medical procedure often upsets the flow of even the most well-polished household. Comfort Keepers offers both short and long-term services available from a mere hour or so a week up to full-time, comprehensive, round-the-clock care, 365 days a year.
Since Comfort Keepers caregivers are actual employees of the company and not independent contractors, each care provider is thoroughly background checked, trained, supervised, insured, and bonded. All business aspect of caregiving, such as payroll, taxes, and insurance, are covered by the company. Even better, if a caregiver gets sick, takes time off, or cannot make it to work, Comfort Keepers will provide another, equally fantastic, caregiver to take their place.
