From day-to-day support – either at home or getting out and about – through to having a valuable confidant for business trips or travel, we offer companionship services to suit your every need.
Sometimes care and support isn’t about a complex medical need or essential personal care tasks. What is often more important is living the life that you want, doing the things you love and feeling as human as possible. We can support with hobbies and interests, attending events and shows, concierge services and running errands or just popping around for a cup of tea and a good chat.
From doing the laundry and taking out the garbage to reading out loud or playing cards, professionals in companionship care and homemaking serve as another body within the home. They’re available to help remind patients when to take their medications, keep up around the house and even drive someone to a hair appointment. Both services differ slightly in how they work.
The purpose of companionship care is to offer company and friendship. 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. Grown children may want to hire companions to keep an eye on their aging parents, for example. Some of the services offered by companionship care include:
Reading a book aloud
Accompanying the patient for a walk outside
Monitoring the home
Think of homemaking as an addition to companionship care. With a homemaker, patients will receive all the benefits of a companion—such as transportation—but with added bonuses. Homemaking extends to include tasks such as cooking, cleaning and even grocery shopping. Some of the services offered by homemaking include:
Taking out the garbage
