What Is Companion Care?

In-home companion care services for elders focus on improving the health and well-being of a senior.

It is a service that can be applied at home or in assisted living situations. In general terms, companion care spans both the social and physical care of a senior. The goal of companion care as a service is to:

  • Provide emotional support.
  • Improve the quality of life of the senior.
  • Provide companionship for the senior by helping in light housekeeping work.

The major duty of a companion is to maintain a link between the senior and the rest of society.

What Does Companionship Include?

Our companionship goes beyond just caregiving and builds a symbiotic relationship that enables the senior to thrive.

  • We perform several small things like going to the grocery shop, taking care of local transportation, visiting doctors along with elders.
  • Older people normally develop a fear of survival which is the biggest challenge for a companion to overcome. We help in doing day-to-day activities and talking to them on a regular basis.
  • Our caregivers help with living a longer and healthier life with improved well being. The effects are fruitful for patients having Dementia or Alzheimer’s.
  • Handling basic housekeeping, such as dusting, sweeping, mopping, organizing, and laundry.
  • Planning and preparing meals for clients, taking dietary restrictions, and preferences into consideration.

What are the Benefits of Senior Companionship?

From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition & companionship care, our companionship service offers various benefits.

  • Alleviates loneliness and encourages seniors to interact with the outside world.
  • Senior companion caregivers encourage and help seniors keep up with correspondence with family and friends.

    I hired 24/7 caregivers from Justin Villa Care two months ago to care for my aging Mother and could not be happier. The time and attention that I have received from Brenda and her team has been a blessing. They've been checking in … More with us consistently to see how things are going and have responded with each of our questions with professionalism and care. So happy to have found them and would recommend them in a heart beat!
  • Avatar Stephanie Sandoval ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    My mom had a stroke that turned her life upside down from an independent woman to needing help with daily tasks. Justin Villa Care was referred to me by the case manager at the hospital and I’m so thankful she did. They met with our family … More promptly
    and brought in a caregiver who has been super helpful. Thank you Brenda and Doha for all your help.

FAQ

Companionship services are usually provided to seniors who are in good physical health but need assistance with their ADLs (Activities of Daily Living). The services generally don’t include medical care and special care. 

At Justin Villa Care, our home care services are personalized to your needs and preferences – all from the comfort of your home!

Although the duties of a caregiver and a companion are similar, there are still some differences. A caregiver has more of a healthcare role, where a companion has more of a friend. A companion’s duties can seem less demanding. Often, the companions provide the following services:
  • Playing games
  • Going for walks
  • Discussing current events
  • Discussing past life experiences
  • Attending social events

These different activities provide seniors with emotional support and keep them happy

Certified Home Care Agencies provide companion services. These agencies are strictly regulated by the federal government. These agencies hire people after checking their skills and provide training to deliver the best service to needy people.

For delivering the most suited services, agencies have categorized companion services as;

Live-in companion care –24/7 service including meal preparation and house cleaning to grooming, bathing, and transportation to appointments.

In-home companion care –It includes shorter visits on an hourly basis or for a special purpose such as going along for a doctor’s visit.

Companion hospice care –A hospice stops by for some time to visit and to help an elder at home. He might run errands for the seniors or help them to appointments.

Religious-based companion care– Some agencies provide a companion to help the elders do social gatherings and attend religious activities like visiting a church and so on.

Before a companion is sent to your house, a careful examination is done by the agency to match with desires. After consideration, the selected candidates have an interaction with the family and the elder. We always prefer to have a face-to-face interaction. But if that is not possible, your needs are always kept on priority during the selection process. We strive for 100-percent client satisfaction.
