The Little Things Make All The Difference
As our loved ones age, a little bit of assistance and companionship can mean a lot.
Seniors often experience circumstances that lead to feelings of loneliness or isolation, as well as difficulty keeping up with everyday household tasks. This may be because their children are adults and have moved away, their spouse or family and friends have passed on, or their mobility is limited.
Whatever the reason, older adults may lose access to the physical abilities and social interactions they used to enjoy. But, there’s a lot we can do to help. Sometimes, all seniors need is a compassionate companion to keep them company and help with everyday activities.
Our Senior Homemaker and Companion Care Services include, but are not limited to:
- Social interaction and keeping company
- Help with housework, meal preparation, grocery shopping, and other chores
- Transportation to and from social events or appointments
- Reminders and overseeing of medication schedules
- Assistance with contacting other people
If you’re looking for companion care services for your senior loved one, Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services is a wonderful option to consider. Our companion care services are available for as little as two hours or for as long a full 24-hour period. All our caregivers are licensed, bonded, and insured, ensuring that you have peace of mind in your loved one’s home care service.
What Is Companion Care
Companion services are an affordable, flexible, and meaningful way to help your elderly loved ones enjoy the benefits of companionship and even true friendship. It is all about recognizing how important it is for seniors to connect and nurture relationships while enjoying rich and active lives.
Companions provide emotional support and friendship to older adults, allowing seniors to enjoy a richer quality of life. A companion can be a friend, a good listener, a confidant, or all of the above. They can be there to join your loved ones for meals, outings, the sharing of stories, visits to the grocery store, walks around the neighborhood, time spent listening to music or watching a movie, and much more.
How Our Companion Care Services Work
Start by contacting our office, and we’ll schedule a free consultation with both you and your loved one. Once we’ve established all pertinent details regarding what you want and need assistance with, we’ll put together a personalized senior companion care plan and schedule.
We then use that plan to match them up with the most suitable companion caregivers on our team. Once you’ve made your final choice, we’re ready to get started and will schedule our first visit for a time that suits everyone.
From Simple to Advanced Needs, We Can Help
The types of services that our caregivers can provide are varied and range from providing simple companionship visits a few days a week to 24-hour live-in care and assistance. That could include things like light housekeeping, as well as driving a care recipient to church, family functions, or the doctor’s office.
Companionship can also be included as a part of more advanced home care options. It can be integrated with personal care, which involves assisting older adults with getting in and out of bed, bathing and grooming, keeping a regular diet, taking medication, and going to the bathroom. Companionship can also be included with skilled nursing, which helps seniors minimize doctor’s appointments by providing at-home medical treatment.
Improving a senior citizen’s quality of life is a job we take seriously with compassion and dedication, no matter their unique situation.
How Much Does Companion Care Cost?
The cost of companion care will vary depending on several factors, especially on the level of care needed and how much training the caregiver requires to provide adequate care. For example, a companion to provide light housekeeping services would cost less than one who can administer injections.
For adult children of senior citizens, working with companion care providers can be a cost-effective way of accommodating a busy life while ensuring your aging family member can maintain quality of life in the comfort of their home.
