ComForCare is a successful, multifaceted business that offers peace of mind and improved quality of life for senior citizens and their families through support around life’s everyday tasks, and also through exciting and innovative programs such as DementiaWise® , a comprehensive care approach for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia that focuses on accentuating the positive by supporting and encouraging remaining skills and abilities; and Joyful Memories, an interactive singalong program that uses the power of music to create connections and positive outlets for emotional expression. ComForCare’s other differentiators include in-home nurse assessments, customized care plan development and ongoing evaluation to anticipate and plan for changes — all based on the clients’ interests, hobbies, skills and abilities that provide joy and purpose in their lives.

The Cost of Keeping Caregivers and their Clients Safe During a Pandemic

According to the CDC, the risk for severe illness from COVID-19 among adults increases with age, with older adults at highest risk. That makes the health and safety of the caregivers who look after them all the more important. And it is the responsibility of those employing the caregivers to ensure they have the resources to do their job safely.
