At Comfort Home Care, our dependable in-home care services in Germantown are designed to help people with activities of daily living (ADL) to maintain their independence longer and allow them to stay in a safe and comfortable environment while still having basic health needs met. We also provide in-home services to support caregivers who need more help to assist a spouse, aging parent, cognitively impaired family member, or loved one with essential routines.
Caring for someone with physical or cognitive challenges can be difficult and stressful. Our goal is to alleviate that stress and give you peace of mind knowing that the person you love is getting exceptional care that allows them to remain independent as long as possible. We opened Comfort Home Care in 1999 after our own search for compassionate and comprehensive home care services. We struggled to find a place that had both highly qualified caregivers (CNAs and GNAs) as well as compassionate care and a deep commitment to serving people who need it most. Since we first opened our home health care agency in Germantown, we’ve been providing that care and compassion to everyone we serve.
Comprehensive ADL Services
A desire to remain in your home can be complicated when you or someone you love cannot provide for their basic daily living needs. At-home care from Comfort Home Care gives you the extra help required for those ADLs, including:
- Eating and meal preparation
- Bathing and personal hygiene
- Grooming, including shaving and hair care
- Mobility to get around the house or neighborhood
- Toileting and continence with discretion and dignity
- Getting ready in the morning or in the evening before bed
Our CNAs and GNAs are highly trained and licensed by the Maryland Board of Nursing to help with all of these things. They can provide assistance for the full day, partial days, or just for one or two things that you need. We also have temporary ADL and in-home care options for someone who needs help following a hospital discharge, surgical procedure, or while a permanent live-in caregiver is away.
Benefits of In-Home Care Services
The right home health care agency can provide services that allow you to continue living in your home and maintain a level of personal independence. For someone with cognitive challenges or physical impairment, the ability to remain in a home where you feel safe can contribute to higher levels of happiness and overall well-being.
At the same time, being a live-in caregiver for an aging parent or someone with cognitive disabilities can be stressful, especially if it requires round-the-clock care. Caregivers like spouses and adult children can also benefit from in-home services that allow you to spend less time helping with ADLs and more quality time with the person you love. These services also make it possible to continue caring for someone even when you need to be gone for extended periods of time, such as work during the day or occasional travel, without worrying whether the person you love will be okay without you.
