Companion care is primarily emotional support. Companionship is for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home. Although companion care focuses on seniors in their own homes, it can be provided to those in nursing homes and assisted senior living facilities.
Older adults living independently often experience loneliness and isolation, and companions engage in conversation, take walks with their care recipients, play games like card games or board games, read a book, and simply provide a listening ear and someone to talk to.
If you chose to age at home, companionship and social interaction are crucial to stay healthy. Having a companion around can make all the difference in seniors’ lives.
Our caregivers truly care about the seniors we serve. They get to know them, build friendly relationships, and keep their company.
