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 with disabilities, should have someone they can bond with, talk to, and rely on for assistance with everyday activities.
Companion care is one of the most common care options we provide. This care can range from sitting, chatting, and reminiscing with someone to accompanying them on visits to see family or friends. Just because one is aging or encountering health difficulties doesn’t mean their social activities should come to an end. Companion care will make staying connected and involved easy while giving family the peace of mind knowing that their loved one has someone that they can always count on.
Companionship activities include:
- Shopping and errands
- Personal correspondence and memoirs
- Accompanying to social events and friend visits
- Gardening, scrapbooking, and other hobbies
- Medication reminders
- Home project assistance
- Maintaining 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 care coordinators. We would love to assist you in any way we can.
The Value of Companionship
When many people think of home care services, they often don’t think of companionship. Though compassionate caregivers can assist you or your loved one with a wide variety of non-medical needs, the importance of simply being there for someone shouldn’t be underestimated. Every caregiver is matched with a client based on their needs and personalities. We want to make sure that our clients can 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.
