Buffalo Grove, IL, April 2013 – ComForcare Home Care of Buffalo Grove has made a special effort to assist elderly care clients to improve their quality of life in unexpected ways. Recently, home care providers worked with one couple to enable them to better enjoy leisure activities and provide supportive assistance for everyday tasks at home.
The Buffalo Grove home care team was contacted by a retired gentleman who was preparing for golf season. The man’s wife had multiple sclerosis and needed continuous care so he was unable to leave her for more than an hour at a time. ComForcare was able to provide part-time home care service for the wife so the husband could enjoy leisure time a few days a week to golf.
“By having us come in several times a week, he can go play golf, go shopping, and maintain a social life with friends and family outside the home,” shares Buffalo Grove ComForcare owner, Valerie Svenningsen. “By coming into his home, we were also able to assist in some unexpected ways.”
The home care team is able to provide assistance in many different ways to enhance the quality of life for the couple. ComForcare providers assist with laundry, prepare meals, assist the wife with her bathing routine, and provide companionship for the wife. They take specific direction from the wife to meet her unique preferences including what sheets to place on a bed, or what foods to prepare for dinner.
Thanks to ComForcare, both the wife and the husband have a greater level of independence and can enjoy more time together to just relax.
