Frequently Asked Questions
Can I drop by a ComfortCare Homes residence for a quick tour?
Family members of residents are always welcome to visit their loved one at home for a meal, afternoon activities or no reason at all. It's part of what makes a home a home. If you're thinking of placing your loved one with ComfortCare Homes and would like to schedule a tour, please contact us and we will be happy to schedule a time that works for you.
How much does it cost to live at ComfortCare Homes?
Many assisted living and nursing home facilities charge by the service which can result in unexpected costs or variable charges from month to month. At ComfortCare Homes, we offer a flat rate for our services, alleviating stress and confusion and making it easy to choose professional care for your loved one.
What should you do if you think someone has dementia?
Dementia can manifest in different and subtle ways, and in the early stages can often be mistaken for normal memory loss due to aging. As with any medical concern, please visit with your primary care provider for a formal evaluation.
What does dementia care mean?
People with Alzheimer’s or dementia require specific kinds of care that is often unavailable in typical nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Many assisted living facilities offer memory care, which provides a limited range of services specific to the needs of people with dementia. While the care staff in memory care departments may have some training and experience specific to caring for people with dementia, it is usually not required or comprehensive.
In contrast to memory care, dementia care at ComfortCare Homes is a tailored-care experience with dedicated staff trained specifically to care for people with dementia, and facilities that offer 24-hour supervised care, assistance with activities of daily living, and psycho-social engagement that keep residents engaged and calm.
