Taking a walk is better with company. Playing cards with a friend is more fun than another game of Solitaire. Having someone listen is better than solitude.
Companionship is one of the most important services we provide, and we can provide it in several ways. Companionship services either use the Caregiver as the companion, or arranging for companionship opportunities with others.
Using video-conferencing platforms like Zoom or FaceTime to connect with friends and loved ones is one of the most common ways we can help bring families together. We can also help your loved one send and read cards and letters in the mail, assist with phone calls, and arrange and/or accompany them to family or social gatherings.
In situations where the Caregiver is the companion, there are endless activities to enjoy, from conversations over a meal or on a walk, to games and puzzles that are appropriate to your loved one’s ability.
Tele-Visit Options exist for Meal Preparation, which means that a full in-person care visit may not always be necessary.
