5 In-Home Companionship Services That Can Help You

5 In-Home Companionship Services That Can Help You

 

In-home companionship services are rarely the first type of senior care that comes to mind when people consider health care for the elderly. But in-home care can have huge benefits. Here are five in-home companionship services that might be able to help you.

1. Talking. It’s Simple And Profoundly Important.

Is it really worth it to arrange for in-home companionship services just so your elderly loved one has somebody to talk to? Can’t you just talk to them yourself? You absolutely should talk to them as much as possible. But many people live far away from their senior parents or they have busy schedules. Seniors live in isolation at worryingly high rates and this can lead to loneliness and depression. Even if you can meet with your elderly loved one in person, they’re not necessarily going to open up to you. Many seniors feel uncomfortable sharing their emotional burdens with family or friends. But for whatever reason, we’re often able to open up better to strangers.

2. With In-Home Companionship Services, Your Elderly Loved One Has Somebody To Accompany Them Outside.

It’s an in-home companionship service even though it involves going outside. Seniors often don’t get out enough. This might be because they don’t feel comfortable outside, because they need physical help, or they simply just forget. In-home companion caregivers can accompany seniors to social functions, religious services, and on errands.

3. In-Home Companionship Services Can Help Seniors Keep In Touch.

Forgetfulness is a big problem for all of us as we age, even if we don’t have a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s. Many seniors simply forget to return letters and phone calls and other times they’re unfamiliar with the technology that would allow them to send emails and texts and participate in video calls. Companion caregivers can help seniors keep up with their correspondence.

4. In-Home Companionship Services Can Be Fun.

It’s not all seriousness and gloom with companion care. A big part of in-home companionship services is playing games. Card games like bridge, uno, or poker, and board games like chess, checkers, and backgammon are all popular among seniors.

5. In-Home Companionship Services Can Be Paired With Other Services.

Sometimes seniors are hesitant to accept care. But nobody likes doing household chores, right? If you pair in-home companionship services with homemaking services, you get the best of both worlds. Your elderly loved one gets some help with laundry, vacuuming, and other chores, while also having a companion there to talk to. Furthermore, this makes the transition to personal care easier if and when that becomes necessary.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
