Companion care supports the emotional and physical health of seniors.
Companion care services are a wonderful option whether you have a senior who is independently aging in their own home, or you have a senior who is in an assisted facility or nursing home. These services work for seniors who have basic needs or advanced needs, or even a little of both. From emotional support to non-medical tasks and personal care assistance, companion care includes a wide variety of services.
But how do you know what type of care is right for your senior?
Let’s start out by defining what companion care is, the different options that are available, and learning how it is beneficial for your senior.
What is Companion Care?
Depending on your senior’s social and/or physical needs, companion care can be completely flexible to help improve your senior’s overall quality of life! If your senior needs physical care services, that typically includes services to assist with tasks like grocery shopping, basic housekeeping, and personal hygiene maintenance. For social needs, your senior will receive emotional support and companionship. Our goal is to help your senior thrive in their environment, whether it is in their own home, a nursing home, or even in a hospice home.
What are the Benefits of Companion Care?
Companion care looks at the big-picture outcome: We aim to help your senior live a better, healthier, and longer life. And yet it’s all in the details! Companion care also focuses on establishing a relationship between your senior and their caregiver. On a social level, a caregiver will act as your senior’ outlet for emotions like grief, and they become your senior’s problem-solver. On a physical level, caregivers will help to remove the burden of completing tasks like driving to a doctor’s appointment or remembering to take a medication.
