Companion Care & Homemaking Services | Auburn & Central Alabama Region

Companionship
Companionship is an integral part of the service we provide. We realize you want your loved one to feel cared for and loved but you can’t be there every minute of the day. Having a companion caregiver to share a laugh with and engage in simple mental and physical activities can make all the difference in the life of an elderly person.

Companion care is extremely beneficial to seniors to prevent loneliness as well. Caregivers can assist the client in preparing healthy meals and monitoring eating habits, getting out and enjoying social activities like visiting friends and family, entertainment, and travel planning. We also provide transportation services to Dr. appointments, pick-up prescriptions, and hair appointments.

Meal Preparation and Special Diets.

A warm, nutritious meal cooked by a caregiver combined with friendly conversation can really brighten a senior’s day. Mealtimes can be an important social time and some seniors may need some additional assistance with meal preparation and meal planning. Statistics show that as many as 1 in 4 seniors living at home are undernourished. Proper nutrition and maintaining special diets are necessary for seniors to enjoy living a healthy lifestyle. This service helps ensure the client is eating nutritious meals and maintaining a well-balanced diet. We also monitor food expiration dates for freshness. We help increase compliance of specialized diets by training our caregivers about therapeutic diets and healthy eating habits. A well-balanced diet can help lower one’s risk of developing chronic conditions.
 

Homemaking

Light Housekeeping

We take the stress and worry out of having an unorganized cluttered living space. We allow clients to continue living comfortably in the home they’ve had for years by offering these services. These services can s include vacuuming, dusting, mopping, sweeping floors, and cleaning bathrooms. The kitchen is kept clean and hygienic by keeping counters clean, washing dishes as well as taking out garbage. We can also organize cupboards and the pantry as well as organize closets.
 

Laundry

We realize that laundering of clothing and bed linens can become harder as we age. This service includes washing, drying, folding, and changing bed linens.


Medication Reminders

Medication errors are common for seniors. Our caregivers can ensure medications are taken on time and safely.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
