Companionship Services

As seniors age, simple chores like light housekeeping, preparing meals, medication management, driving a car or staying connected to family and friends can present a challenge. Having someone around to give a helping hand, offer friendly visits and enjoyable conversations is all they need to live comfortably at home. CareFirst is here to provide a helping hand when it’s needed most. Our compassionate team addresses the essential home care and companionship needs of your loved ones, keeping them happy, active and engaged.

What is Companion Care?

Companion care is usually a less intensive, non-medical service often including activities like driving to an appointment, playing cards, going on walks, visiting family and friends, and anything that keeps the patient busy and enjoying life. Many seniors living at home alone need companionship and mental stimulation, but not necessarily hands-on care. For example, many families find themselves living very far or having busy schedules that don’t allow them to take good care of their elderly loved ones. Companion care is perfect for such adults who would want to enjoy their independence at home with a friendly, compassionate companion who regularly visits to sit, chat, and reminisce.

An important note is that companion care and homemaking is different from home health agency services. A home health aide has additional licensing for personal hands-on care and provides skilled medical care that a standard care provider can’t give according to state law. However, companionship care is often times more affordable, allowing your senior loved ones to receive genuine care and enjoy their independence at a reasonable price.
