Who Needs Companion Care?

According to the Home Care Association of America, 43% of people over the age of 60 feel lonely regularly. Not only is it unpleasant to feel lonely, it also increases the likelihood of losing one’s ability to conduct activities of daily living. If you suspect your loved one experiences loneliness, we encourage you to discuss companion care with him or her. Even a few visits each week could make all the difference, and it will help pave the way for additional assistance that might be needed in years to come.

Older and disabled adults also miss out on treasured social interactions when they become unable to drive. Companion care services include transportation and accompaniment to social outings, medical appointments and errands. This supports client safety and also encourages mental stimulation and promotes social connectivity.

Many seniors and disabled individuals have more concrete physical or mental limitations that make living independently difficult. Our caregivers are fully trained to fill in the gaps to keep clients safe, ensure proper nutrition and assist with household maintenance tasks to help clients continue to live in their own homes with dignity and confidence.
