Comfort Keepers Unique Interactive Caregiving™
There's an old adage that says the human body won't go anywhere the mind doesn't tell it. A healthy mind really does contribute toward a healthy body. It's why we work with clients to improve both.
Our Interactive Caregiving™ approach in home care for seniors focuses on four key areas:
- Senior mind
- Senior body
- Senior nutrition
- Senior safety
We're there with the client every step of the way, encouraging, challenging, participating, and just having fun. It's a method that's well-received and can produce some remarkable outcomes.
#1 Senior Mind
We tailor these mental activities around our Jacksonville clients' personal interests. This type of in home care for seniors may include puzzle solving, board games, cards, and reminiscing.
#2 Senior Body
Physical activities are gentle and tailored to the senior's ability. There are no lessons in torture here. Senior body plans can involve specific exercises—sitting or standing—and even going for walks.
#3 Senior Nutrition
Neither the mind nor the body can function well if the client is on a poor diet or skips meals. It's a growing problem, especially with home-alone seniors. It's why nutrition is a big part of the plan.

Senior safety is at the forefront of all that we do. It can include things like rearranging spaces to make walking around safer. It may also include the use of our various safety technology tools and devices.
