Senior Companion Care Services in The Blue Ridge, VA

Helping Seniors Stay Connected through Home Companionship

Aging adults, depending on their health and living situations, have a variety of needs. One need that is important for all seniors, whether they are living alone, in a group home or in an assisted living facility, is companionship.

Senior home companion care services can help seniors with many necessary activities, such as serving meals and providing medication reminders, but one of the most crucial services they provide is, simply, companionship. Companions go beyond caregiving and provide a social connection that many seniors lack, sharing with them the types of simple social activities that enrich all our daily lives.

Acti-Kare Companion Care Services

The most important tool that our trained companions bring with them is compassion, a caring attitude that is attentive to the emotional needs of their client. Companion care sessions are also a chance for the caregiver to “check in” on the senior’s overall well-being. Companion care is an important adjunct to physical care services, like personal grooming or changing bed linens, since it addresses the whole person, body and spirit. Many seniors are less verbal in their elderly years, so, in addition to conversational cues, an attentive companion caregiver may pick up on changes in mood, extra fatigue or other signs the client may need additional help or special attention.

No matter their living or health situation, seniors can benefit from the many services provided by a companion caregiver. Beyond standard home caregiver duties, such as the activities of daily living, some of the areas a companion may help with include:

  • Safety and security checks
  • Managing daily routines
  • Mail and personal correspondence
  • Small home projects
  • Hobbies and games
  • Reminders (medications, appointments, etc.)
  • Reading and conversation
  • Memory care activities
  • Physical movement
  • Trips outdoors to benefit from fresh air and sunshine
  • Transportation for errands and appointments
  • Attendant care during social events and outings

Our companion caregiver will also interact with family members, to keep them apprised of the activities and well-being of their loved one.

Active Companion Care: Acti-Kare means Activity-Based Care

Acti-Vate, our activity-based care program, is included as part of our everyday caregiver services. This proactive life-enhancing program adds to the effectiveness of our companionship care program. Acti-Kare believes that all individuals can benefit from simple, stimulating and fun activities, either physical or mental. And, activities that are structured to improve the individual’s overall functioning, such as memory games or physical movement exercises, are an effective tool for helping to improve and maintain functions such as memory, mood and mobility. Our caregivers are trained and ready to incorporate elements of the Acti-Vate program in the companionship care program when they think their client will benefit and enjoy these life-enhancing activities.

Companionship is vital to seniors who may feel isolated and alone. Affordable companionship services can be a life-saver to many elderly adults who look forward to their caregiver visits and count on their companions to provide them with compassionate care and good company, too.

"Yesterday I met with Ms. Crookshanks and a client of mine who will begin receiving Acti-Kare services. Ms. Crookshanks was absolutely AMAZING. She provided a personal touch to a sometimes very cold situation. I have experienced working with home care agencies that just send someone out and forget about it. I couldn’t believe that she actually came out to initially meet with the client and takes time to make sure she matches the client with the perfect caregiver. She was compassionate and engaged throughout the entire process. I must say this is the best service I have ever received from an at home care agency."
