Enriching Lives through Genuine Connections: Our Companionship Services for Seniors
At Advantage Home Care, we believe that connecting with others is key to a healthy and fulfilling life.
What is a Companionship Service?
Designed for older adults and individuals with disabilities, our non-medical care goes beyond essential assistance. Companionship Services are not about simply having someone present; they involve forming genuine connections, providing emotional support, and fostering lasting friendships.
Our compassionate caregivers offer companionship, understanding, and meaningful interaction to ensure your loved ones feel valued and connected. With our Companionship Services, your beloved family members will experience the warmth, care, and emotional bond they deserve.
How Companion Care Works
Our process starts with a thorough examination that enables us to dive into each person’s interests, likes, and dislikes in order to learn what actually makes them happy. We carefully match your loved one with a companion carer from our talented staff based on our results. This companion caretaker will take over as their primary source of company, guaranteeing a sincere bond that lasts for however long is required.
Visits from companion care providers might happen at home, at a care facility, or even while taking a leisurely stroll. Depending on each person’s preferences, other activities like playing cards or other games may also be included. Within 24-48 hours of each visit if requested our carers send full reports including what was discussed, how your loved one was feeling, what was eaten, and how they were feeling overall.
