Companion vs Personal Care

When selecting in home care in Shaker Heights, OH, it can be challenging to determine which type of caregiving is best for a loved one. This is especially true for families choosing between companion care and personal care. Knowing the difference between the two makes the decision process more manageable. 

Companion care offers services that make daily life easier for seniors and disabled adults. A companion caregiver's duties typically include light housekeeping, running errands, cooking meals, and medication reminders. They are also a comforting form of companionship that can ease feelings of loneliness and isolation.   

Personal care includes the services of companion care but adds physical assistance. Personal caregivers assist with bathing, dressing, toileting, and grooming. They can also offer a steady hand for balance while walking, getting up from a chair, or navigating a staircase. Personal care also provides non-medical assistance for chronic health conditions, including diabetes, Parkinson's, COPD, and ALS.
