Senior Companion Care in College Park and Atlanta
Hourly/ 24x7 Home Care Services by Trained Caregiver
Other than chronic illnesses, boredom, isolation, and loneliness are among the issues affecting our seniors the most. This is usually as a result of mobility issues and the loss of their driving capabilities, both of which lead to fewer socialization opportunities.
What Is A Companion Care Service?
A companion care service is a form of in-home care, whose primary goal is to offer emotional support and companionship to older adults and other individuals that may be housebound for one reason or another.
Astin’s Companion Care Services
Our companion care service is designed to make life more manageable for our clients, but alleviating loneliness and isolation is the main objective behind this service.
How It Works:
A companion/caregiver makes daily or regular visits, depending on the client’s desired schedule. During these visits, the companion provides social interaction through a number of tasks and activities, such as the following:
- Taking relaxing walks
- Playing all kinds of games, including card and board games (mental stimulation)
- Talking and reminiscing
- Offering a listening ear
- Watching movies and listening to music
- Looking at old photos
- And more.
While our goal is to primarily provide emotional support through companion care, our companions are also ready and willing to provide some basic help with the following tasks:
- Diet monitoring
- Organizing mail and paying bills
- Assistance in going up and down the stairs
- Help with getting in or out of bed
- Transfer assistance
- Exercise programs
- Escort to appointments
- Escort to religious services
- Escort to movies/restaurant
- Am and pm care
- Safety supervision
- Reminding the client to take medication
- Coupon clipping & grocery shopping
- Overseeing home deliveries/repairs
