For your loved one
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL'S)- ADL's consist of bathing, dressing, and toileting- Instrumental ADL'S consist of shopping for, running errands, making scheduled appointments etc.- Companions in Care offers assistance with each of these. We are insured to provide transportation to meet your loved one's needs.
Alzheimer's/Dementia Care- When a family member suffers from Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia, it can be difficult for everyone. Companions in Care is here to help. Through the use of techniques like framing, engaging and redirecting, we will work with your loved one. Using the stories shared with us by your loved one, we may create a journal of their life experiences.
It is surprising what we are still able to remember as we get older. Getting it all written down can be important. Especially to pass on to furture generations.
Companionship- Companionship with a heart of care and attention to the overall health and wellness of your loved one is of primary importance to us at Companions in Care. Companionship services range from simple conversation to working crafts, playing games, working puzzles, reading to the client and assistance with daily tasks. It has been found that mental, visual and auditory stimulation can have a profound effect in the day-to-day wellness and wholeness of the client.
A self-care day away- Because we don't always need "days" away to refocus ourselves and recharge our engines, I came up with this idea. It sort of mimics something that we did at the convent- providing a day for self-care and time so that you can focus on other interests. A day for whatever you need to do. Pick the time that works best for you and we will be there so that you can enjoy your day away.
Respite Care- I think that all caregivers would agree that "We all need a longer break now and then." Companions in Care is ready to help you to take some much needed time away. We will cover most any daytime shifts and if arrangements are made ahead of time, we will try to cover overnights as well.
Advance Meal Prep- We know that cooking can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Advance meal prep is a service available
through Companions in Care. In addition to meals prepared for the day, which are a part of the daily rate, meals may be prepared in advance and frozen for your convenience, If you are interested, please speak with us for more information.
