Each week we speak to callers that say "I don't need a caregiver, I just need transportation or I just help with my meals". Companion Services provide transportation, meals and so much more. This type of service is non-medical assistance for people who want to remain living in their home but need help with certain task.
Companion assistance is ideal for those who spend the majority of their time alone and need help with home care tasks. Companion caregivers provide valuable emotional support and provide social benefits that help to decrease isolation and depression. This helps seniors stay mentally healthy and alert through conversation and encouragement to be as physically active as possible. This assistance also provides invaluable peace of mind to family and loved ones.
