Visiting Angels Provides Home Companion Care

Think back to your awkward years when you were trying to make friends. Maybe you were the new kid on the block, or maybe you lived in a remote area, and it was a distance to the nearest neighbor or friend. If you can re-imagine those days, you may be able to relate to your elderly parent who may be in need of companionship. Although hiring someone to spend social time with your mom or dad may appear artificial, home companion care can be very therapeutic and often enhances your parent’s mental and physical well-being.

Companions provide support and assistance in a variety of ways. When selecting senior home health care services, it is essential to identify not only your mother or father’s needs and expectations but yours as well. Keep in mind that when selecting a companion for your parent, it is a three-sided relationship. Most importantly, the companion and your mom or dad should mesh well. But you may also be a part of the relationship, and having a working relationship with Visiting Angels caregivers is important for you as well.

You or your loved one may be interested in additional services alongside home companion care, specifically if your mother or father has health-related or physical needs that must be met. Visiting Angels’ home companion care providers can offer regular assistance. Services range from weekly assistance or daily help, and include tasks like light housework, transportation to various activities or appointments, and medication reminders. We also provide 24-hour care, such as for loved ones who have limited mobility and need assistance with bathing and toileting. Not only is a dedicated caregiver providing personal care at a higher level, but he or she is also providing companionship and peace of mind.
