Home Care Associates offers a wide range of companion care in your home or loved one’s home. Companion services is a form of home care offering non-medical services to older adults or people with disabilities.
Companion care differs from personal care in that personal care aides may provide the same services as companion care but also help with tasks such as bathing, dressing, and medication management, depending on specific state regulations. The goal of companion care is primarily emotional support and socialization, although companions may help older adults with a variety of tasks, including:
Monitor Diet and Eating
Assistance with Walking and Mobility
Dressing Monitoring (includes clothing selection assistance)
Supervise Home Maintenance and Arrange lists
Mail Bills and Letters
Enjoy Every Moment
Home Care Associates’ companionship provides a variety of beneficial services that make life more manageable for older adults, but companionship itself is perhaps the most important, particularly for seniors who live alone and find it difficult to get out of the house. Older adults living independently often experience loneliness and isolation, and companions engage in conversation, take walks with their care recipients, and play games like card games or board games, and simply provide a listening ear and someone to talk to.
