Perhaps the most underrated type of care we provide to our elderly loved ones is companionship care. What is companionship care? Companionship or companion care is the care that primarily focuses on the emotional support we provide to our elderly family members by offering them company and basic assistance with their home care needs. When it comes to our aging loved ones, we want them to be happy and of sound mind in the late years of their long, fulfilled life. With companionship care, we offer to you our staff of talented and diligent CAREGiversSM that are eager to engage in fun activities with your loved one keeping them mentally sharp and enjoying the things they like to do best.
Although many people are not aware of the benefits of Home Instead Senior Care®, research has supported the fact that mental stimulation and activity reduces the chances of an elderly person developing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Along with the obvious advantages of remaining mentally alert, companionship care offers your loved one the opportunity to remain physically active and healthy by having a compassionate guide accompany them on walks through the neighborhood or park, assistance gardening or doing basic exercises, and even helping around the house with things like meal prepping to ensure they are eating healthy.
Another great benefit of companionship care is that it is cost-effective. Simply put, your aging loved ones receive genuine care and continue to enjoy their independence at a reasonable price. Many senior citizens enjoy the company, but do not need it more than a few times a week. In some cases, it’s nice for them to have somebody accompany them to the doctor’s office for a visit or help them schedule an appointment or assist them with a trip to the grocery store. Regardless of the reason, with companionship care, your elderly loved one can live a life fulfilled in Harrisonburg.
With our compassionate CAREGivers, our talented and caring staff can also assist your loved one with any of the practical things that need to be done. Whether it’s a trip to the doctor’s office or grocery store, reminder to take their medication, help around the house or in the kitchen, scheduling doctor’s appointments, ensuring they are eating healthy and exercising, or an advocate that will be there for moral support when they need them, our trained and certified nursing staff can assist your loved one with any of their needs.
