The value of this time cannot be underestimated. A family caregiver simply does not time to handle personal needs. With Comfort Keepers respite care, we carefully keep an eye on your senior loved one. Family caregivers return refreshed from the benefits of their well-deserved break. Everybody wins!
At Comfort Keepers, we know what Alzheimer’s families are up against.

Using facts about your senior loved one’s life history, as well as his or her likes and dislikes, we can devise activities designed to produce more focused thought. It all starts with awakening forgotten memories, which might be recalled by looking at a family photo album, reading one of their favorite old books, or even listening to their favorite music.
