What Is Companion Care?
Companion Care from Family Resource Home Care offers a personal connection to clients who want or could benefit from more interaction in their day-to-day lives.
Even healthy clients who are able to take care of themselves may just need a caring person to visit them daily or a few times a week to offer conversation, social activities, and encouragement. This can help reduce the sense of isolation, ward off depression and feelings of loneliness, and provide positive health benefits.
All Family Resource Home Care clients receive Companion Care — it is simply part of what our caregivers do while in the home. Since we believe so strongly in establishing and maintaining a good relationship with our clients’ families, we only hire and work with caregivers who are genuinely kind, committed, and caring individuals. By the way, all of our caregivers are fluent in English.
In addition to simply being available for companionship and conversation, examples of Companion Care might include:
- Accompanying client on errands and with shopping
- Escorting client to medical and other appointments
- Providing a companion for travel and out-of-town visits
- Making appointments and providing assistance with correspondence
- Accompanying client to social activities and other outings
- Pet Care
- Playing games or doing home projects
- Gardening, scrapbooking, and other hobbies
- Other activities based on interest and need
Family Resource Home Care provides quality Companion Care Services
While a large percentage of our client base is seniors, Family Resource Home Care serves clients of all ages and abilities. Our clients range from small children with special needs to older adults in need of assistance with the activities of daily living.
Research shows that people of all ages who receive regular social interaction have richer lives, lower risk of mortality, better physical and mental health, and are less prone to cognitive decline with age. We all generally need other people in our lives for social and emotional well-being. If you have an aging loved one living alone and having difficulty remaining independent, they may benefit from Family Resource Companion Care, in addition to Housekeeping and Personal Care Assistance.
