Companion care is a type of in-home care service offering non-medical services to older adults and people with disabilities.
Care will typically include a number of ways to make daily living easier and safer for the care recipient. For example, a Care Partner might perform errands, such as grocery shopping or picking up medications, on behalf of a senior. At other times Care Partners will plan and prepare regular meals, perform light housekeeping and offer medication reminders, provide stand by assistance.
This type of care is designed to improve quality of life. Care Partners act as partners for favorite hobbies and activities, accompany clients to appointments and social outings, and engage in friendly conversation. These activities can be a lifeline for socially isolated seniors. Social isolation has shown to dramatically increase the risk of health complications and mortality in seniors.
