My wife Janet took care of her mother when there was no similar business in this area. Janet and her family brought her mother to SC to live and quickly learned how difficult caring for a loved one 24 hours a day can be, not only to the caregiver, but the entire family as well. This is when we recognized a need. Several years later our son was paralyzed in an accident and the initial care fell upon our family. Again we saw the need and through this realized that there w ere many others that needed help. We discovered that there were companies already in existence that had laid the ground work but not in our area. Comfort Keepers was one of them.
What set Comfort Keepers apart was that they actually took the time and effort to find out who we were before allowing us to join them. That was important. A company who really cared about us as individuals and our desire to help others. We firmly believe that you can't train someone to care. It must be in their heart. Our compassion, dependability and philosophy of "Interactive Caregiving" is what sets us apart.
Comfort Keepers of North Augusta partners with 88.3 WAFJ Family Friendly Radio to stay connected to the local community.
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
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.
