What are companion caregivers?

Companion caregivers are homecare services that offer companionship for the elderly. These services can include light housekeeping, errand running, and providing transportation to doctor’s appointments. Companion caregivers can also provide social interaction and help with activities of daily living. It offers a much-needed service for the elderly population to cope up not only with their personal care but for their emotional needs especially.

There are many benefits to hiring companion caregivers. One of the most important benefits is that it can help prevent loneliness at home. Elderly adults who live alone often times do not have anyone to talk to on a regular basis. This can lead to feelings of depression and isolation. Having a companion caregiver can help reduce these feelings by providing social interaction on a daily basis.

Besides from getting basic caregiving training, it would help if you have a caring and compassionate personality. Companion caregivers provide social and emotional support to those they are caring for. This means being a good listener, being patient, and having a positive attitude.

Unless your caregiver is certified to do so, most Companion Caregivers do not provide medical care. However, they can provide basic personal care services such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting. They can also provide transportation to doctor’s appointments and other errands as needed.
