Bloomfield Hills, MI October 2012 - ComForcare offers geriatric care management
services to help protect the health, safety, and well-being of their home care clients as
aging starts to make life more challenging. These services are provided by experienced,
professional caregivers and are especially helpful for families who live a greater distance
away from their parents or grandparents and cannot be there to help manage or assist with
day-to-day needs of their family members.

“With ComForcare, you can trust that your loved ones are being care for by people who
are passionate about what they do and are committed to providing the best service
possible,” says ComForcare Home Care President, Mark Armstrong.

Geriatric care management is important for aging adults because it delivers personalized
service around-the-clock and ensures continuity of care. Geriatric services from
ComForcare include an in-home nurse assessment to identify each client’s physical and
social situation to better identify challenges or concerns and set goals for healthy
independent living. Then a personalized home care plan is developed by the nurse to be
followed at each visit. Caregivers are also carefully matched using information gathered
in the assessment regarding personality, interests, and life experiences.

Other services that are included in geriatric care are notifying family members of changes
in each client’s needs and keeping lines of communication open between family members
and the home care agency to answer questions or provide care updates. By working
closely with family members and each client, geriatric care providers at ComForcare are
better able to continually assess the client’s needs and ensure they are offering the most
up-to-date personalized care and services.
