Companion Care

Companion Care can be a great option for seniors who are able to bathe, dress, and groom themselves, but would benefit from help with the following activities:

  • Cooking and meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping such as vacuuming, laundry, help washing dishes, and surface cleaning
  • Running errands like grocery shopping or going to the post office
  • And of course, there’s the companionship aspect – going for a walk or simply talking over tea. Many senior citizens live alone and do not have visitors very often.

Companion Aides are trained to watch for signs of change in physical or mental capacity and notify one of our registered nurses of such changes. Some seniors enjoy companion care and remain at that level of care, while others will someday need Personal Care (also known as hands-on care) in order to remain living in the comfort of their own home.
