Companion care is primarily emotional support and companionship for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home. However, it can also include a range of non-medical services that help make a senior's life more manageable.
One of the most important aspects of companion care is providing a strong sense of belonging and comfort. Taking an interest in the client, his/her life and environment creates a lasting bond between caregiver and the individual. Whether it is playing a favorite board game or card game, reading, taking a stroll or visiting with friends and neighbors, life is meant to be enjoyed by the individual.
