Companion vs Personal Care

Companion care and personal are two popular types of in home care in Marion County. They are also the most frequently confused types of care because they sound so similar. However, there is a significant difference between the two - direct physical assistance. 

Companion caregivers assist with errands, transportation, and light housekeeping yet cannot help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) or other tasks requiring direct physical assistance. These include bathing, grooming, toileting, dressing, and help with mobility. 

Personal caregivers have the skills and training to provide direct physical assistance with ADLs and other caregiving duties. Personal care is recommended for seniors and disabled adults with limited mobility or chronic conditions such as diabetes, dementia, Parkinson’s, and COPD.

Both personal and companion caregivers can be sources of comforting companionship for seniors aging in place. Shared activities such as working on crafts, reading aloud, and going for walks can alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation, common issues for many seniors.
