Different Kinds of Companion Care


One of the biggest challenges we seniors face is being isolated. It’s such a difficult thing to bear being alone and having a hard time socializing. This can lead to negative consequences such as depression and the loss of motivation to live or even pose health risks like dementia and forgetfulness. Thankfully, we can get valuable help from the companion care provided by caregivers from home care/home health care agencies and other healthcare institutions such as the caregiver in Atlanta, Georgia. The main aim of companion care is to provide us emotional support in the comfort of our homes or institutionalized healthcare settings as well.

  • Live-in companion care
    Home care agencies typically offer live-in companion care. In this care at home setup, one or more people do 24-hour shifts. This is recommended to keep us, seniors, in our homes for the longest time possible. Among the services included in this kind of companion care aside from emotional assistance are meal preparation, bathing, grooming, house cleaning, and transport appointment.
  • In-home companion care
    This kind of companion care entails shorter visits with particular aims like meal preparation, bathing assistance, shopping for groceries, and transport appointments. Well-person checks are also conducted when loved ones, friends, and other community members stop in for a routine visit.
  • Companion hospice care
    There are several ways that a hospice can provide companion care. It can be through volunteers who stop in to visit and assist. The volunteers can do errands for us seniors or aid us with our appointments. Hospice also offers home health aides for respite visits and personal requirements.
