How a Companionship Program Can Work With Your Parent’s or Loved One’s Desire for Independent Living

Written by: Michelle Nicols

A companionship program is designed to offer senior citizens assistance in most areas of their lives. With a companionship program, your elderly parent or family member can maintain a sense of independence and dignity while still receiving the care they need. Programs like this enable them to stay in the familiar surroundings of home with a sense of feeling in control of their lives.

By opting for a companionship program, it allows for a healthier relationship between your family and your elderly relative. Quality time can be spent together without having to worry about tasks that need attention. A companion caregiver will provide and take care of many household chores, which can include light meal preparation, cleaning and grocery shopping.

It is comforting to know that a friendly, professional companion performs regular visits to your loved one. An aging parent or family member can stay active and continue visits to family, friends and other social events.

A companionship program for your elderly parent can provide you with peace of mind, knowing that there’s someone looking out for them when you aren’t there. At Bayshore Home Health, we understand that each aging person has their own individual needs. That’s why our Companion Plus program can be tailored to include some of the following activities:

• Conversational companionship
o A companion can simply spend time with your loved one and chat and check in on their safety.
• Assistance with meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping
o A companion can help with the everyday chores that your loved one may not be able to do themselves.
• Running errands and grocery shopping
o A companion can escort your loved one on errands, keeping them active while providing their assistance.
• Transportation
o A caregiver can either provide transportation or arrange transportation to appointments and outings.
• Medication reminders
o The companion can remind the elderly person to take medicine.
• Relief care for the family
o Caring for a loved one is a full-time work and the companionship program can provide caregivers to give the family an opportunity for a break.

All services we provide are performed in a professional and compassionate manner. Our companion caregivers have a passion for working with elderly people. Bayshore Home Health’s caregivers undergo a thorough and exclusive training course designed solely for caregiver companionship.

In the hustle and bustle of today’s rushed lifestyle, a companionship program will provide you with peace of mind, in the knowledge that your elderly parent or family member is well taken care of.
