Companion vs. Personal Care

Are you considering in home care for your loved one in Northbrook? With the wide array of services available, it can be difficult to determine which type of care your loved one needs. At Visiting Angels® Evanston, we are happy to provide personalized care for seniors in our area. Keep reading to learn more about our companion and personal care programs.

The Unique Aspects of Companion Care and Personal Care

Companion care is a type of in home care that provides a friendly face and aid for seniors who live at home. This type of care is great for seniors who are living independently and may be unable to visit family or get out of the house. Our companion caregivers are happy to interact with your loved one and accompany them on outings, so they aren't alone.

Here are some of the services associated with companion care:

  • Companionship
  • Daily walks
  • Accompanying clients for errands and appointments
  • Taking part in hobbies and activities
  • Offer medication reminders

Our in home care programs also include personal care, which offers more physical assistance for seniors in their homes in the Northbrook area. This program is beneficial for seniors who are living with disabilities or chronic conditions. Our caregivers are able to assist with a wide range of tasks, making aging in place possible for our clients.

The following services are offered with personal care:

  • Mobility assistance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal preparation
  • Bathing, grooming, and dressing
  • Toileting

Before enlisting in home care for your loved one, discuss with them what type of care they need. This can help you determine which services they will require from their caregiver.
