Elder care doesn’t always have to involve light housekeeping and medical services. Oftentimes, clients simply want a companion they can socialize with and to feel more comfortable at home. As such, we provide companion care services to provide emotional support to our clients.
Companion care and personal care are two types of in-home caregiving. While both care options might seem similar, they each provide distinct services to patients and their families.
Companion care providers focus on social and emotional support. Instead of delivering medical care and addressing health conditions, this service supports patients who may feel isolated or lonely at home. As part of this service, patients can request assistance with nonmedical tasks, including light housekeeping and running errands. The companion caregiver can also keep the client company while helping with other everyday tasks like meal prep.
Personal care focuses on physical assistance and support. Personal care workers train to help patients with personal tasks like hygiene and toileting. Caregivers understand how to assist with medication management and offer transportation services. These services help care recipients get the support needed to complete daily activities and routines, making managing their household easier. Patients can feel more independent and comfortable while staying in their own homes.
Having access to at-home companion care offers patients consistent emotional and social support. Older adults, especially those who live alone, often experience social isolation. Having a familiar face around can make a big difference for loved ones’ health and wellbeing.
Some of the benefits of companion care include:
