What Is Companion Care?
You may be asking “what exactly [is] companion care and who is it for?”. Companion care is our in home care service that provides essential assistance to our elderly and disable clients. Companion care for seniors and the disabled includes multiple ways for life to be made easier and safe for them. Examples of care include, but are not limited to, running errands on behalf of a senior, planning and preparing regular meals, performing light housekeeping duties, and offer medication reminders. We use this kind of elder care to also improve a client’s quality of life in other ways; our caregivers participate in favorite hobbies, go to client’s appointments and social outings, as well as participate in engaging conversations. For isolated seniors these activities are a lifeline for them. Social isolation has shown to increase health complication risks and death dramatically in seniors. By providing a companion for seniors, you are ending the cycle of senior isolation.

When providing a companionship for seniors, the services usually included basic activities such as doing laundry, making meals, and assisting with errands. This type of care does not include physical assistance with activities. Personal care however does cover physical assistance to clients, such as dressing, bathing, or toileting, while also be a companion for seniors. Personal care services can also include non-medical assistance for chronic health conditions, like diabetes or Parkinson's.
