COMPANION & PERSONAL CARE SERVICES

COMPANION CARE SERVICES

Conversation and Companionship  

Whether the client needs conversation, company, or just eating a meal together, having someone to sit and visit with can help make for a happier, healthier life. Interacting with every client is of utmost importance.  


Meal Preparation  

Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat well-balanced meals. Our caregivers can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals. This service gives our clients the opportunity to eat the nutritious meals they need to enjoy healthier living. Because many seniors may have sodium restrictions or are diabetic, our caregivers must give consideration to the client’s diet restrictions. They must also take care in adding certain spices. Spoon-feeding clients is not permitted. This is something that requires specific training in areas such as choking hazards and also requires licensing. Caregivers may help seniors cut their food and even “load” their fork, but the client needs to be able to feed him or herself.  


Light Housekeeping  

Vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms to include sinks, showers, tubs and toilet, cleaning kitchens, sinks, appliances, counters, taking out the trash, straightening all rooms, making beds, organizing closets and drawers, cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a step stool and/ or ladder

  

Errand Services  

Caregivers can run errands such as picking up prescriptions, going to the post office, or any type of routine chore. If the caregiver uses his/her own vehicle, both the hourly rate and mileage charge would apply.  


Grocery Shopping  

Caregivers can shop with or without the client accompanying them. They can shop at any store the client prefers and can use any coupons provided. If the caregiver uses his/her own vehicle, both the hourly rate and mileage charge would apply. 


Incidental Transportation  

The caregiver can provide trips to doctor appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, wherever the client likes to go. Getting seniors out and about is good for their mind, body and spirit. If the caregiver uses his/her own vehicle, both the hourly rate and mileage charge would apply.  

 

Daily “TLC” Phone Calls  

This service is a telephone call to those clients who may not need someone coming to their home everyday, but they and their families can have peace of mind knowing that if they need something, we will be checking in on them each day. Management may request that the “on-call” personal make these daily calls as scheduled.
