In Home Care in Manhattan Beach
Companion vs. Personal Care
If you're new to the world of in home care, choosing the right services for a loved one in Manhattan Beach may prove challenging. One area that can be especially tricky is understanding the distinctions between different types of care. For example, you might be wondering about the difference between companion care and personal care.
At Visiting Angels® Palos Verdes - Torrance, companion and personal care are the two most common types of in home care we provide. These services have a lot of overlap, which can make it hard to tell them apart. But if you're looking for care for a loved one in Manhattan Beach, it's helpful to know the difference between them.
Companion vs. Personal In Home Care
Broadly speaking, the main difference between companion and personal care is the level of caregiving that each service provides.
Companion care is typically a great choice for individuals with basic or moderate caregiving needs. At Visiting Angels Palos Verdes - Torrance, some of the services included in our companion care plans include errand and medication pickup services, assistance with meal planning and meal preparation, and wellness check-ins. Other popular companion care services include laundry, light housekeeping, and medication reminder services.
With personal care, your loved one may receive any or all of the services provided on a companion care plan. However, in addition to these services, personal care can also include caregiving tasks that require direct physical assistance. These include things like assistance with mobility, dressing, grooming, bathing, and toileting. This makes personal care a better choice for individuals with chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, and other types of advanced caregiving needs.
