Our Unique Approach to Elderly Care: Interactive Caregiving™
Comfort Keepers in Hollywood, FL proudly provides extraordinary elderly care that focuses on meaningful engagement
Our dedicated elderly care providers, 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 elderly care plan will include a variety of activities such as:
- walking 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
Our office delivers essential personal care, companionship, and homemaker services that help seniors live happily at home, like other elderly 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.

Benefits of Interactive Caregiving
Professional in-home elderly care can be an effective way to enable seniors to remain in their homes while receiving the help they need to be safe and healthy. An essential element of effective in-home care is interactive caregiving that provides for emotional well-being that is vital to increasing quality of life. Seniors can benefit in many ways from comprehensive care that incudes interactive caregiving intended to meet physical, emotional, and social needs.
Interactive care includes the senior receiving care in activities and conversations. Therefore, rather than simply preparing a meal and setting it before the person receiving care, the caregiver will invite them to work in the kitchen side by side while enjoying conversation. Each senior is encouraged to participate in household tasks as is appropriate for their capabilities. This fosters the building of a relationship and continued independence on the part of the care receiver.
Besides sharing in household chores and personal care, interactive caregiving includes activities that any companion would typically enjoy with a friend. Seniors are encouraged to share hobbies, conversation, and activities that they love with their caregivers to increase their emotional well-being and mental state of mind.
Caregivers will even take companionship services beyond the home, escorting the senior in their care to appointments and events. The senior receives reliable transportation and mobility services as needed, but they also enjoy having a friend at their side as they run errands or attend family functions. Leaving the home is safer and more enjoyable with a companion at their side.
Interactive care has few limits. Caregivers may begin reveling with their senior over old pictures, which could lead to listening to old music that is full of memories. Before you know it, they may even be sharing a dance in the living room.
For care that has the potential to truly optimize the quality of your loved one, choose interactive care that considers every aspect of senior life and well-being.
