ComForcare Home Care franchises offer valuable services for families as they tackle the challenges of aging in today’s modern society. Whether clients are managing a chronic condition, recovering from an illness or injury or simply require assistance as they age, ComForcare home care franchises provide much-needed assistance for individuals who wish to remain in the comfort of their own home. Recently, a Chicago-area ComForcare franchise was able to support an entire family through a difficult transition period.
This ComForcare franchise provided comprehensive home care services for a woman with dementia. Her husband had recently passed away and the family contacted ComForcare when they realized she needed home care services. Up until his death, the husband had lovingly cared for his wife, and their children were unaware of how serious their mother’s dementia had become. Once their father passed, the children needed to find someone who could provide the care their mother needed. She was still verbally competent, but was often confused. Her mind spent more time in the past than the present and she required constant assistance.
To help the family during this difficult time, ComForcare provided around-the-clock care for their mother for two months. This gave them time to make funeral arrangements for their father and determine the best way to provide for their mother’s long-term care needs. ComForcare caregivers escorted her to doctor’s appointments and salon appointments and assisted her with light housekeeping. They also helped her with grocery shopping and attended to her personal care needs. Her caregivers helped her through the stress of losing her husband, and spent time sharing stories and looking at pictures from her past to help reorient her.
During the time ComForcare provided care for this client, the caregiving team provided ongoing feedback on her condition to her children. The home care franchise team gave the family peace of mind as they dealt with their own grief and the time they needed to find the best place for their mother to live.
