Companion caregiving is one of our most popular services, as it covers a broad range of caregiving duties that help older adults maintain independence at home, including light housekeeping, errands and transportation assistance, and socialization. We can keep your independent loved one company and ensure that they are able to complete their daily tasks that they may have difficulty performing on their own.
The Trusted In-Home Caregivers in Pensacola Since 1989
We have offered at-home caregiving services for seniors to Northwest Florida since 1989. Our caregivers go through a thorough screening process that includes checking their references, national criminal background, credentials, and physical condition.
And unlike most caregiver agencies, our caregivers are “direct employees” instead of contracted “sitters.” This relieves our clients of legal liability and complicated record keeping, and also means that our staff are covered by our own Workers Compensation Insurance.
Our diverse team of caregivers has vast knowledge and experience in at-home caregiving, which allows us to provide the highest quality of care to our clients. We are here to help you get the care you need.
What is Companion Care?
Companion care is a form of in-home care the offers non-medical, essential services to older adults or those with disabilities. Typically, care will incorporate a variety of methods to improve the care recipient’s daily life, making it safer and easier for the individual to continue living at home. For instance, a caregiver might run errands for a senior, including shopping for food or picking up medication, organize and prepare meals, and remind patients to take their medications. Caregivers may also accompany clients to appointments, enjoy some favorite hobbies and activities with them, or simply engage in a friendly discussion with clients.
This kind of senior care aims to enhance quality of life for those opting to maintain independence by living at home by providing help with daily tasks as well as relief for seniors who may feel socially isolated.
