Home Companion Care refers to supervision that provides care, safety, and assistance to senior citizens while they remain in their homes. This type of care is provided by licensed professionals who are trained in the field of elder care. There are two categories of companion care: in-home care for seniors. Companion care is typically provided by live in companions or non-live in companions. An in-home caregiver provides visits to seniors, or alternatively, lives with an in-home elderly adult, and either visits twice or three times per week or every other day.
Seniors in Senior Living Communities
An assisted living home or senior care facility is a residential living facility designed for older people who can’t live on their own but don’t need nursing care or who don’t want to live in a nursing home. Instead of providing for the elderly in a traditional way, these homes offer services including housekeeping, meal planning, transportation, and companionship. In addition, many seniors who live in assisted living facilities also receive help with daily personal care such as bathing, dressing, and shopping. However, there are many senior care options available and knowing the different senior care options is important to help you make an informed decision about your senior living needs.
