Our days become more slow-paced as we get older. We have more time on our hands to be with friends and family and even meet new acquaintances. Even so, it can be challenging to schedule in fun activities around other events that occur in our lives. Your relative who’s getting older may live on the other side of the nation or nearby. Regardless of the distance, it’s reassuring to have someone you can count on to be there when needed. A kind and thoughtful caring helper who stops by often might be all your senior relative needs.
What is Companion Care?
Caregivers who provide companion care are nurturing. They’re caregivers and home chore assistants. Think of them as extended friends. They’re ready to make your treasured senior family member’s daily activities easier to do. Some examples include getting bath towels ready when needed and other domestic tasks. Most important, a caring helper’s main duty is to be a thoughtful companion. Your loved one is not alone when he or she requires home care help and friendship.
