Did you know that something as simple as human companionship can already improve quality of life for an elderly or disabled individual?
Long periods of isolation can often lead to depression or put the health of a person at risk. With companionship services, our staff visits you or your loved one at home. We spend time with you, have conversations and occasionally help out with household chores.
Our Companions & Homemakers
Often times, a nurse assessment will determine that all a loved one would need to remain safely and securely in their home is the company of a friendly and compassionate companion or homemaker. The nonmedical services of a companion or homemaker include: preparation of meals, light housekeeping and laundry, shopping including groceries and clothing, escorts or driving to medical appointments and social gatherings, medication reminders, grooming and dressing guidance, and assuring safe mobility throughout the client’s home.
Our HHA’s and PCA’s
Following a thorough assessment by our nurse and under her supervision, a Certified Home Health Aide or Personal Care Aide may be placed with your loved one. HHAs and PCAs duties include; preparing meals that address dietary or health issues, assisting with bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting, assisting with transfers and ambulation, performing healthcare related tasks such as monitoring vital signs and medication under the direction of our registered nurse.
