Los Angeles Senior Home Companions
Senior home companions offer nonmedical services that can greatly increase the quality of life and well-being of older adults. In Los Angeles, elderly companion services can come directly to your home and start providing warmth, companionship, and help in everyday tasks and activities when you reach out to Kinkaid Private Care. Companion caregiving is a great choice for seniors who have mobility issues, socialization challenges, or health complications – but don’t need the advanced care of private nursing or personal caregivers.
What Does a Companion Do for the Elderly?
Senior home companions provide a variety of essential services, but their foremost role is to offer warm, sociable companionship to elderly individuals who are struggling with social isolation. Too often, seniors living at home alone can find themselves without strong social connections or unable to visit friends and family on their own. Despite this, they still have a strong desire to be active, social, and independent.
Senior home companions are often just the solution that these older adults need. Home companions can visit with seniors on a regular basis, provide an essential source of connectedness, and help older adults live healthier and more fulfilling lives. This type of support has been shown in scientific studies to help prevent depression, anxiety, and the feeling of burdensomeness from occurring in older adults.
In addition to being a strong source of social support, senior home companions can offer services such as:
- Helping with everyday chores and errands
- Cleaning up around the house
- Being a partner for favored hobbies and activities
- Motivating seniors to achieve personal goals
- Transportation to medical appointments
- Medication reminders
Whether their client wants to take a walk in the park, go grocery shopping, or attend to family obligations – a senior home companion can be there to help.
