What Is the Interactive Difference In Elderly Home Care?
Interactive Caregiving contributes to better lives for seniors. Many research studies point to the health benefits of active living. It has been shown to result in longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives. An Interactive Caregiving plan is created for each senior based on his or her personality, unique interests, health and abilities.
This plan will include a variety of caregiving activities such as:
- Exercising by walking in the neighborhood or through local parks
- Working together on various household chores
- Preparing and sharing a meal
- Running errands, including shopping
- Attending medical appointments
- Participating in civic group activities
- Medication reminders
There are also fun and personalized activities which can be included, such as:
- Dancing to music
- Working on hobbies, puzzles, or crafts
- Playing games
- Visiting a local senior center
- Attending a church service or community event
- Discussing current events or topics of personal interest
- Reminiscing with photo albums
What Are the Benefits of Interactive Caregiving for the Elderly?
Keeping the mind engaged is just as important as caring for the body when it comes to elderly home care. This is especially true for the elderly, adults with special needs, and anyone left homebound and alone following medical procedures. Something as simple as a regular conversation can provide comfort to a client living on their own and keep their mind alert and active. Enriching interaction has very strong benefits for seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Anyone can provide a meal or perform light household chores for your loved ones. It takes one of our professionally trained and certified home caregivers to go the extra mile and make seniors feel young and active again.
Our team understand living independently can take a toll on the elderly and disabled. We provide all the assistance necessary for an enjoyable, enriching life. Whether by doing a load of laundry, helping your loved one with grooming habits, or simply keeping their mind sharp through interactive activities, our Comfort Keepers offer a level of assistance unequaled by any other caregivers in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties.

Interactive Caregiving Produces A Quilt Made of Love
When Comfort Keepers found a pile of fabric to be thrown out at the home of one client, they realized they had an opportunity for interactive caregiving. They asked the client to donate the fabric material for a quilt project for Lorraine, another client. The first client agreed, so long as she got to participate as well.
Comfort Keepers were taking care of Lorraine, a deaf client who communicated by writing on a white board, who used to be an avid quilter.
The caregiver brought her own sewing machine to each of the clients for over a year so these two separate clients could be part of sewing the quilt together.
The caregiver wanted to make a difference in Lorraine’s life by doing something she loved. Once the quilt was finished, they felt Lorraine truly deserved the quilt and she became the recipient of the “Quilt Made of Love.”
