    About My Business
    Comfort Keepers is a leading provider of in-home care services. Our expert caregivers provide customized care plans that may include personal care and companionship-homemaker services. We help seniors and other adults live an independent, quality life.
    About My Services
    Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care
    Our caregivers are trained in dementia care and are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers' unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the dementia care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior's life. While developing a relationship with the senior, the caregiver can plan activities that could help the senior simulate mental or physical activities that have been shown to create more lucid thought.

    Personal Care Services

    Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
    Comfort Keepers can help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our Comfort Keepers are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.

    Mobility Assistance
    Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. Comfort Keepers can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.

    Transferring and Positioning
    Comfort Keepers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.

    Toileting and Incontinence Care
    Our Comfort Keepers work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, Comfort Keepers help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.

    In-Home Companionship

    Conversation and Companionship
    Our Comfort Keepers provide clients companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.

    Meal Preparation
    Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. Comfort Keepers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.

    Light Housekeeping
    Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens.

    Grocery Shopping/Errands
    Comfort Keepers will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged.

    Medication Reminders
    Our Comfort Keepers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.

    24-Hour Care
    Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, in-home care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
    Experience And Credentials
    Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help

    Every member of our team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers. What truly sets our people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others.

    All Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

    Interactive Caregiving™ in Chicago, IL and Surrounding Areas
    Our distinctive approach to in-home care is at the very heart of Comfort Keepers.

    Our dedicated caregivers, the special people we call Comfort Keepers, transform day-to-day caregiving into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.

    How Does It Make a Difference?

    We believe Interactive Caregiving contributes to longer, healthier, more purposeful lives for seniors; in fact, many research studies point to the health benefits of active living in later life.

    An Interactive Caregiving plan is created for each senior client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities. This plan will include a variety of activities such as

    - walks in the neighborhood.
    -working together on household chores.
    - preparing a meal.
    -discussing current events or personal interests.
    -reminiscing while viewing photo albums.
    -working on hobbies, puzzles or crafts.
    -going shopping or to church.
    -visiting a local senior center.
    - participating in civic group activities.
    -dancing to music.

    Each Comfort Keepers office delivers essential personal care, companionship, and homemaker services that help seniors live happily at home, like other in-home care providers. However, with our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.

    The result? A healthier, safer, more fulfilling life for your loved one in the comfort of his or her home.
    Fees And Payment Sources Accepted
    We offer a complimentary care plan meeting to all future clients. Please call our office to schedule a time that is convenient for you and your loved ones. Our rates are based on the level of care required. We accept long term care insurance and private pay.
