The Benefits of Companion Care for You or Your Loved One

Have you (or someone you love) reached a point in life when you’re “out of sorts”? Nothing major — you’re in relatively good health and have only occasional problems with routine tasks. But the number of friends and family in the area is diminishing. Or they might be too busy to spend much time with you. It can be a dull and lonely feeling.

We understand what you’re experiencing and wonder if companion care might be the answer.

What Is Companion Care?

Companion care is a type of non-medical home care for seniors or people with disabilities. It differs from personal care or home health aides, though. Personal care is similar to companion care. But it also assists with tasks such as bathing, dressing, and medication management (depending on state regulations).

What if you’re not ready for that level of care, though?

The primary goal of companion care is providing emotional support and socialization, hence the word “companion.” Care companions help older adults with tasks such as:

• Light housekeeping
• Doing laundry
• Preparing and cleaning up after meals
• Running errands like grocery shopping and post office trips
• Planning and scheduling appointments and social activities
• Transportation to appointments and other activities
• Conversation, games, or other entertainment
• Walking and other light exercises
• Updating family members and other care team professionals

Would an in-home caregiver without healthcare responsibilities be a good use of your time and resources? Companionship can go a long way toward improving and maintaining your health, your spirits, and your sense of well-being.
