Personal Care/Companion Services

What is Companion Care

Companion care is a type of home care that offers non-medical services to older adults or people with disabilities.

Personal care provides the same services as companion care but also includes tasks like medication management, dressing, and bathing.

Companion care and personal care primarily aim at providing socialization and emotional support although companions also engage in tasks like:

  • Preparing meals
  • Running errands
  • Light housekeeping
  • Transportation to appointments
  • Other household chores like washing clothes and cleaning
  • Communicating with care team professionals and family members

How Does our Companion care service work?

Shot Health provides formal companion care services as part of an overall care plan designed to ensure wellness and health. The companion will make regular visits, varying in frequency based on your unique needs. At least, the visits will be done weekly when the companion will help in preparing the meals, taking care of the laundry, and other tasks as required. Our companion care service providers will adjust their schedules to accommodate the needs of our clients if they had an appointment scheduled outside the typical visiting hours.
Companions deliver various beneficial services to ensure life is more manageable for older adults. However, companionship is the most vital, especially for the seniors living alone and finding it difficult to get out of the house. Older adults who live alone often experience isolation and loneliness, companions engage them in conversations, provide them with a listening ear, play games like board games or cards, take walks with their recipients, thus minimizing the psychological impact of isolation. Moreover, companions transport older adults to their local senior centers and clinics for activities and appointments. This helps older adults remain active and engaged, ensuring they do not miss vital healthcare services. Older adults and people with disabilities also experience challenges with mobility that complicate the execution of daily tasks like laundry and washing dishes. By ensuring the light housekeeping tasks are taken care of, companions remove the burden from the care recipients, which improves their quality of life.

Does Your Loved One require Personal care/Companion care?

Older adults who stay alone within their homes may ultimately experience difficulties in carrying out daily household tasks. Companion care is the first way that families explore to help their aging loved ones continue residing independently in their own homes as they experience a loss in mobility due to aging or cognitive decline from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

It can be difficult to ensure a family member is always available to transport a senior loved one to their activities or appointments when other family members have other obligations or work full-time. If these seniors no longer drive or lack access to a convenient transport means, they will significantly benefit from companion care services.

Companion care is a valuable benefit for older adults facing challenges in conducting their daily chores. If your aging loved one desire to age-in-place, companion care from Shot Health will enable them to remain in their own home, comfortable, and independent.
