Or perhaps your sister’s health is waning; she’s growing older and forgets to take her medications. Whatever the signs, you’re beginning to wonder if your loved one needs help around the house. Companion care and homemaking offer just that: nonclinical assistance for those who need it, without leaving the comfort of home.

From doing the laundry and taking out the garbage to reading out loud or playing cards, professionals performing these care options serve as another body within the home. They’re available to help remind patients when to take their medications, keep up around the house and even drive someone to a hair appointment. Both services differ slightly in how they work.

How A Caring Companion Can Help

The purpose of companion care is to offer company and friendship. Companions may help with certain household chores, such as laying out towels before a shower, but their primary purpose is to spend time with the patient. Grown children may want to hire companions to keep an eye on their aging parents, for example. Some of the services offered include:

  • Transportation
  • Reading a book aloud
  • Playing games
  • Accompanying the patient for a walk outside
  • Letter writing
  • Monitoring the home

Benefits of A Home That’s Clean & Safe

Think of homemaking as an addition to the companionship services your loved one receives. With a homemaker, patients will receive all the benefits of a companion—such as transportation—but with added bonuses. These services extends to include tasks such as cooking, cleaning and even grocery shopping. Some of the services offered also include:

  • Laundry
  • Cooking
  • Taking out the garbage
  • Light housekeeping
  • Organization
  • Respite care

Benefits of Companionship and Cleanliness

From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companion care and homemaking have many benefits for patients. If you suspect your loved one isn’t eating well, for example, having a homemaker available to cook nutritious meals can turn around your family member’s health.

Here are just a few of the benefits these services offer:

  • Mental (cognitive) stimulation
  • Increased mobility due to transportation services
  • Socialization
  • Improvement in health, both physical and mental
  • Safety supervision
