"Thanks for everything; Comfort Keepers was a life saver for our family!!"
"Words cannot nearly express the gratitude we have for all of you and the care that Dad received. Your kindness and caring went above and beyond. Many blessings to all of you!"
"Just a note to let you know how much we appreciated your wonderful help through our needy time. It's so nice to know you're there if we need you again!"
"Thank you for all your kind visits and care during mom's illness. It meant so much to have extra help. I know she felt secure when you all came over. What a lovely service you offer to so many. Thank you so much."
"Valuable services checking in on mom so that we can get away for a few days. We will use them again and will refer this company to others."
"I have been very happy with the company. Schedules have been made and kept. I don't have to worry if I will have staff. They have been on time or I was called to let me know if they are running late. My one concern is getting him to eat and do therapy, but I understand that they can't force him. Glad to have this company working for us."
"Comfort Keepers do a great job to provide coverage and consistency. The employees really care about the people they are helping."
"Comfort Keepers provided round the clock care for a man who was near and dear to my heart. I interviewed other caregivers before selecting Comfort Keepers, and I believe I made the right choice. The caregivers invested themselves in many ways that showed it was more than a job to them. They communicated well with each other, and Joan Wurzer kept on top of many details that made it much easier for me. I recommend Comfort Keepers, and I am happy to talk to anyone who wants to ask about my experience."
"Joan and her team of care experts givers are a life-saver for me. I started their services an year ago when my mom had surgery and needed companion care. Her team of caregivers are top notch and they are always willing and able to help us out whenever we are in a pinch. I would highly recommend them for in home senior care. The administration staff has also built a special bond with my Mom and they check in on her frequently."
"I sincerely enjoy working for my C.K. franchise because they really do care about their clients! I have worked for other home care agencies, and they seemed more interested in the money. And, it is obvious to me that they care about us, their employees, just as much - imagine that! I'm not used to that!"
Legal Considerations In Inver Grove Heights, MN
Learn more about essential legal documents your loved one should prepare in advance
When caring for a senior loved one, planning for the future is necessary. This includes getting your loved one’s legal, health, and financial affairs in order. The earlier you do this, the better. Life is unpredictable and you can never know when a healthcare emergency may arise. Not having legal and financial documentation to provide guidance during a health crisis may cause many problems.
It is advisable to go through legal documents with your loved one in order to make sure they are all there. Professionals also recommend organizing them and making copies, which you can give to people you trust. Legal documents should be kept in a safe place such as a safe deposit box or a lawyer's office. Some of the documents your loved one should prepare include birth certificate, social security records, life insurance information, policy numbers, Medicare documents, bank statements, and mortgage papers.
In case you have any questions or doubts concerning legal matters, you can consult an elder law attorney. You may also want to use reliable online resources such as
• The Law Issues for Consumers section of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) website
• The ABA’s Commission on Law and Aging
• The ABA’s Guide to Wills and Estates
• Lawyer locator tools on the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys’ and ABA’s websites
Important legal documents for seniors include advance medical directives like wills or durable power of attorney for health care and finances. A living will provides clear instructions regarding care whereas a power of attorney for health care is a document which authorizes you to make decisions concerning your loved one’s health. A power of attorney for finances gives you permission to manage your loved one’s financial affairs.
The idea behind these documents is to put your loved one’s wishes into writing in order to ensure that their care preferences will be respected in case they cannot communicate them. It can be also helpful to contact your loved one’s doctor, as they can provide valuable information about medical decisions your senior mom or dad may need to make in the future.
