Managing everyday household tasks for older independent adults may eventually be challenging. Companion care is often the first way families seek help to enable their aging loved ones to remain in their own homes. This is especially true when they experience loss of mobility with aging or cognitive decline from the onset of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. If a loved one prefers to age-in-place, companion care will enable them to remain independent, in their own home. Companionship is a valuable benefit for older adults not just those who face challenges in keeping up with daily household chores, but are at risk of isolation, or need transportation to appointments and other locations.
For family members who work full-time or have other obligations, it can be difficult to ensure that a member of the family is always available to transport a senior loved one to regular doctor appointments and help with other errands like grocery shopping. These seniors, particularly if they no longer drive and lack access to convenient transportation, can benefit from companion care. Additionally, older adults who live alone and don’t have many friends or family members who make regular visits can benefit greatly from the socialization offered by a companion.
