In Home Care in Marion County
Companion vs Personal Care
When considering in home care options in Marion County, many families have trouble deciding between companion care and personal care. At Visiting Angels® Albany OR, we understand how important it is to choose the right level of care. After all, you want your loved one to have the assistance they need to feel comfortable and safe as they age in place.
The most significant difference between companion care and personal care is the need for one-on-one physical assistance. Both options offer companionship, transportation to shopping and appointments, and help with daily household tasks. Companion and personal caregivers can also provide medication reminders, encourage self-care, and prepare healthy, home-cooked meals.
However, if your loved one has a chronic health condition or limited mobility, personal care is the better option. A personal caregiver can offer one-on-one physical assistance with Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs. These can include help with walking, balance, bathing, toileting, dressing, and grooming.
