Companion vs Personal Care

Choosing between in home care options for a senior parent or loved one can be confusing, and there are many types available in Upper Arlington, OH. Today we'll review the core differences between companion care and personal care.     

Companion care offers assistance with everyday household tasks and joyful companionship. Common tasks include cooking, organizing, changing bed linens, and running errands. A companion caregiver can also provide transportation, medication reminders, and encouragement to stay active and social.

For seniors with limited mobility or a chronic condition such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, or Parkinson's, personal care may be a better option. Personal care encompasses all the services of companion care with the addition of physical assistance. A personal caregiver can aid with walking and balance, toileting, dressing, grooming, bathing, and other non-medical tasks.
