What Is Companion Care?
Companion care is a form of home care offering non-medical services to older adults or people with disabilities.
Companion care is a powerful, flexible, and affordable way to help the senior in your life enjoy the benefits of true friendship.
Companion care differs from personal care in that caregivers may provide the same services as companion care but also help with tasks such as bathing, dressing, and medication management, depending on specific state regulations.
The goal of companion care is primarily emotional support and socialization, although companions may help older adults with a variety of tasks including:
- Light housekeeping
- Household chores such as laundry and dishes
- Running errands such as grocery shopping
- Planning and scheduling appointments and social activities
- Transportation to appointments and other activities
- Preparing meals
- Socialization and entertainment
- Communicating with family members and other care team professionals
