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.

Types of Companion Care

Multiple types of companion care exist to help serve people with varying levels of needs. A few examples of different types of companion care include:

  • Live-in senior home companions
  • In-home companion care
  • Hospice care companions
  • Religious based companions

Companionship care can be flexible – and accommodate most older adults with specific needs, desires, and schedules.

The Difference Between Companion Care and Caregivers

Companion care and personal caregivers both provide services to older adults, but in different capacities. The main differences include:

Companion Care

  • Can assist seniors with their everyday tasks
  • Provides emotional support and companionship
  • Improves the quality of life of seniors
  • Assists with leisure, entertainment, and socialization

Personal Caregiver

  • Completes everyday tasks for seniors who cannot do so themselves
  • Provides physical support and medical monitoring
  • Improves the quality of healthcare for seniors
  • Assists with bathing, grooming, and toileting

For the most part, companionship care is better suited for seniors who are able to live on their own without assistance, but still desire a greater sense of social connectedness. In contrast, a personal caregiver is often the right choice for seniors who need routine help with completing their everyday tasks and would not be able to do so on their own.
