Caregivers & Companions

Senior Caregivers: Everyday Living with Dignity

A family needs a caregiver when a senior needs assistance with activities of daily living, or ADLs. This is the most common form of senior home care.  ADLs are essential self-care tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, and other personal hygiene tasks. Senior caregivers also help clients move safely throughout their day, and provide medication reminders to ensure that prescriptions are followed correctly.

 

Families appreciate the peace of mind that comes from having a trained home health aide there to help if a medical or safety emergency should arise. When a relative is caregiving from a distance, having someone in the home ensures the senior’s needs are met. We carefully match senior companions with clients to make sure their personalities complement one another – an essential feature in what is often a very long-term relationship.

Reliable, Professional, Highly Trained Caregiving Professionals

Choosing a senior caregiver is vitally important to your loved one’s health and safety. We pride ourselves on screening, hiring and training excellent caregivers. From our staff of senior caregivers, all of whom are employees, we take great care to find those most suited to each client’s physical needs, personality, dietary preferences, and culture.

 

All of our senior caregivers are certified by NYS Department of Health. They receive extensive training and are rigorously screened before we hired them. We provide on-going safety and specialty trainings to keep our team up to date in caregiving best practices. We provide them continual oversight and support.

Companions: Friendly Support for Seniors

A family needs a companion when a senior needs someone to spend time with them in a social and supportive manner. Our Senior companions accompany our clients through their day, providing conversation and friendship, assisting with light household chores, and helping prepare meals. Nurturing, one-on-one care helps seniors maintain their health and independence.

Seeing a friendly face can make all the difference.

Senior companions provide essential social support. Too much time alone can be unhealthy. A companion offers social stimulation and good company, and also can notice changes in physical or mental health. The earlier a problem is detected, the sooner it can be addressed, sometimes averting a crisis.
