Areas We Serve: Miamidade
The purpose of companionship care is to offer company, friendship and a responsible extra set of hands to be of personal assistance. Our companions may help with certain household chores, such as laying out towels before a shower, but their primary purpose is to spend time with the patient.
From doing light house duty to reading out loud or playing cards, professionals in companionship care and homemaking serve as another set of eyes and a responsible and able body within the home. They’re available to help remind patients when to take their medications, keep up safely around the house and even drive someone to appointments. Some of the services offered by companionship care include:
• Accompanying the patient for a walk outside
• Letter writing
• Monitoring the home
• Playing games
• Reading a book aloud
Benefits of Companionship Care and Homemaking: From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companionship care and homemaking have many benefits for patients. If you suspect your loved one isn’t eating well, for example, having a homemaker available to cook nutritious meals can turn around your family member’s health.
Companionship care and homemaking do not include personal, hands-on care. For example, companions cannot help patients bathe or take their medications. Instead, they can prepare the bath and remind patients to take their medications.
