Companion Care Services
The Importance of Connection
Regardless of age, health, or where someone lives, companionship is a necessity. The power of connecting with someone can’t be understated. At Griswold Home Care, we believe that everyone, especially the elderly and adults dealing with disabilities, should have someone they can bond with, talk to, and rely on for assistance with everyday activities. We refer caregivers who will provide all of the above.
Companion care is one of the most common care options that professional caregivers provide. This type of care can range from sitting, chatting, and reminiscing with someone to accompanying them on visits to see family, friends, doctors or to religious institutions. Just because one is aging or encountering health challenges doesn’t mean that all social activities should end. Companion care will make staying connected easy while giving family the peace of mind knowing that their loved one has someone to count on.
Companionship activities include:
Shopping and errands
Personal correspondence and memoirs
Accompanying to social events and friend visits
Gardening, scrapbooking, and other hobbies
Home project assistance
Maintaining the safety and security of the individual and home
These are just a few of the services that fall under the umbrella of companion care. If your loved one requires companionship services not listed above, don’t hesitate to reach out to our office and speak with a care coordinator.
The Value of Companionship
When many people think of home care services, they often don’t think of companionship. Though caregivers can assist you or your loved one with a wide variety of non-medical needs, the importance of simply being there shouldn’t be underestimated. Every caregiver is matched with a client based on their needs and personalities. It’s important that clients develop a special bond with their caregivers so that they always feel comfortable expressing themselves, sharing their feelings, and asking for assistance when they need it.
