Elderly Companion Care
When the time comes that your loved one needs some additional help and support during their aging years, it can feel overwhelming to decide what the best plan of care is. There are a lot of options, after all, and you want to make the right choice for you and your family.
What is Elderly Companion Care?
Companion care is a type of care for seniors and those with a disability that offers care within their own homes. The care given is non-medical in nature. It’s easy to confuse companion care with home health care, but there are several important distinctions. Home health aides provide some of the same services as companion care professionals, but they may also help with other tasks like bathing, dressing, medication management, etc.
The primary goal of companion care is to provide emotional support and socialization. Essentially, companion care personnel can fill in for you and other family members who may not have the time or the means to dedicate the kind of attention and companionship your loved one needs for optimal health.
