What are the benefits of companion home care?

Freedom:

Clients can live according to their own schedule, set their own menu, and participate in activities when and if they choose to. Caregivers adjust their schedule to best serve clients, not the other way around, so companion care opens many more options for recreation, hobbies, and visits with friends and family than assisted living facilities.

Health and Recovery:

Available information suggests that older people and those with illnesses or injuries who remain at home long term stay physically and mentally fitter. Familiar surroundings have been shown to benefit those experiencing dementia or cognitive decline. Certainly the opportunity to continue favorite activities and visit friends with the help of a home care aide can prevent feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression.

Longevity:

Price:

The fact is, a caregiver or home care service can cost much less than a nursing home or long term care facility. We understand that price is a consideration for most, and we strive to provide and affordable alternative to elder care facilities.
