Home Companion Services
A companion can make a tremendous difference in a person's life by keeping them more engaged and active. Companion services are home-based supervision and monitoring activities that assist and/or instruct an individual in maintaining a safe environment.
Companion activities may include:
- escorting individuals to medical or business appointments or recreational activities
- supervising or monitoring a client in performing activities of daily living
- reminding individuals to self-administer medications
- reading to or for an individual.
Companions do not do any type of homemaking or cleaning. Companions do not do any hands-on care (for example they are not able to help with bathing or other hygenic care).
