Frequently Asked Questions About Elder Services
Comfort Keepers answers common questions about in home care in Flagstaff, AZ
What are elder services? Are they the same thing as home health care?
Elder services are a type of non-medical care. It is provided by professional non-medical caregivers and focuses on helping your loved one stay independent, comfortable and healthy for a long time. Home health care, on the other hand, is provided by medical professionals and concerns treating your loved one's illnesses and/or mobility issues they may be having.

Are elder services expensive? How much do they cost?
The cost of non-medical care varies from one senior to another. Some seniors need only a few hours of help per week, while others need 24 hour home care. At the same time, some seniors need specialized care, like ones suffering from Alzheimer's disease, or those in the final stages of their lives who need end of life care. These factors all contribute to the cost of care. If you are curious, the best thing to do is to contact our office in Flagstaff, AZ and speak with one of our representatives.
