Elder Care in Columbia, IL
Whether it’s somebody to spend quality time with your loved one a few times a week, a companion to join them for fun activities, or someone to check in after a hospital stay, there are several appropriate times to consider companion care for our elderly loved ones.
Companionship care offers our elderly family members that emotional support they need and the basic care they deserve. Companion care is also a flexible and affordable option for our Columbia loved ones that still enjoy their independence, but would like some help every once and awhile.
Columbia's Trusted Elder Care
With studies showing that an active mind helps prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s from developing, elder care can be considered one of those rare forms of treatment that provides our elderly loved ones with a better mental, emotional, and physical outlook. Perhaps the best part of companion care is that it covers so many potential needs and opportunities to help our loved ones. Whether your aging family member likes social outings like trips to the mall or movie theatre, physical activities like walking or gardening, prefers help around the house with basic chores and cooking, or simply just wants some friendly company in their home, compassionate care can truly provide your family member with whatever they need.

Home Helper Services:
Receiving help with home tasks that are more difficult for seniors is often crucial to allowing seniors to continue to live in their home. Plus, our home helper services free up time for family caregivers to spend more quality time with their loved one. Home Helper services include cleaning, laundry, shopping, running errands and helping however we can.
Personal Care Services:
Having an outside caregiver help with personal care such as bathing, dressing and mobility helps preserve important family relationships and preserves the dignity of the senior. Our trained CAREGivers treat each senior with the utmost of respect in all personal care matters.
Our CAREGivers can fill in for family caregivers to allow them to find time for their own lives and family, go on vacation or just take time to replenish your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
