In today’s blog post we will be discussing some of the values that we hold dear here at HomeCARE Furniture by ComforTek. As we have discussed in previous homecare furnishings blogs, we see — and place — a huge value on mealtimes. Why? Not simply because we are a mobility chair company that specializes in making mealtimes easier, but instead because we understand the intimacy of family meals — after all, we have families too.
Mealtime is a time when we sit with our families, discuss current developments in our life, and recount some of the best times of our lives. Sitting at the dinner table is something that we hate when we are young, but as we get older we begin to realize how we had taken out time with our family for granted — and when it gets to a certain point, some family members struggle to continue to make it to the table.
When a family member is suffering from a debilitating disease such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, or extreme Arthritis, it can become difficult to make it to mealtime. While we can’t give you lost time at the dinner table back, we can make it easier for everyone to find their way back to the dinner table. Our mobility dining chairs are specially built to make mealtime easier, safer, and more enjoyable for families, and caretakers of loved ones.
As much as we say it, repeat it, and reiterate it, you probably are sick of us saying that our goal is to make mealtime safer and more enjoyable for all parties involved, so instead we will tell you about some of the other values that drive our brand.
Bringing Families Together
Mealtime or not, our homecare furnishings company understands the inherent need for families to be together, especially in times of sickness. When a family member falls ill, you might feel devastated or helpless. Taking care of them may be harder every single day, making you question if you should place your loved one in the care of a professional facility. We are here to tell you that you don’t have to give up on keeping your family together — not just yet. Here at HomeCARE Furniture by ComforTek, we don’t just make chairs, we make tools that family members can utilize to keep their loved ones in their home for longer.
We Care About You As A Caregiver
Every single day people are diagnosed with diseases that result in their need for care. Unfortunately, if you are reading this blog post, it has probably happened to someone you love. While research is being conducted to find cures for diseases like dementia and Multiple Sclerosis, there is no cure, regardless of the strides that are being made in the right direction. Your loved one will not be cured of their disease, so ensuring their comfort and promoting their happiness is the only thing that you can do as their caregiver.
While it truly is selfless what you do for your loved one, it is important that you know your limits for providing care, as when your family member suffers from a debilitating disease, it can affect your health as well. In fact, 2/3 of spouses that are charged with providing care to a spouse with Alzheimer’s die before their loved ones. To put it simply, being a caregiver is one of the most physically and emotionally testing positions that anyone could ever be in. We urge you to read one of our previous blogs on how caregivers can be affected by the strains of providing care to their loved ones. At HomeCARE Furniture by ComforTek, we know that being a caregiver is difficult, and because of that, we manufacture mobility chairs that can reduce your stresses in one small aspect of your tasking position.
Aging In Place Is Important
When a loved one is diagnosed with a disease like dementia, your first thought is likely to be if you have to put them in a care facility. While care facilities are an excellent resource for people that do not have the capacity to care for their loved ones, it is much more beneficial for them to age in place at home rather than be moved to a facility — if at all possible. When people diagnosed with terminal or incurable diseases are able to age in the comfort of their own home, they will experience a number of benefits. First and foremost, home is where the heart is, and even for someone with dementia, being surrounded by familiar faces and a familiar environment can do wonders for their health. That is our goal here at HomeCARE Furniture by ComforTek — to keep families together, for longer. Our mobility assist chairs are specially designed to make mealtime and dining room experiences easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
How Does Our Product Help?
While yes, you know that the goal of our mobility assist chairs are to assist you in creating an enjoyable mealtime routine like the ones your remember before the diagnosis, or at least as close to those times as possible, our chairs are also meant to make mealtime safer. All too many times we have heard stories from people saying that their loved one fell and were injured getting up, or sitting down, in their chairs during mealtime. Additionally, other hazards arise when the chair must be scooted into the table — for both you as a caregiver and your loved one.
Because of these inherent risks associated with mealtime, and the number of times that we had heard of people becoming hurt, we decided to make a line of mobility assist chairs that allow for the safe seating and scooting of loved ones that are suffering from debilitating diseases. Our mobility assist chairs are part of our homecare furnishings line and feature products like bariatric chairs with wheels, swivel dining room chairs with casters, and other assorted homecare chairs.
At HomeCARE Furniture by ComforTek we truly care about families that have had a loved one diagnosed with a debilitating disease, being why we have dedicated a branch of our seating company to create homecare furnishings that can make your lives easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
