Companion/Homemaker Care

Companion CareHomemaker and Companion Services refers to certain activities able individuals engage in every day without thinking twice about it. As we age—or deal with other temporary or permanent impairments—these everyday tasks or interactions may become a struggle. Our trained and experienced Caregivers motivate our clients and encourage them to be actively engaged.

We Are Family Home Care can provide you or your loved one with a customized plan for any service we offer, including, but not limited to, the homemaker and companion services listed below:

Conversation/fellowship: Sometimes we all just need someone around, with whom we can enjoy fellowship and good conversation.

Recreation and exercise: We encourage as much exercise and recreation as possible. Our Caregivers keep clients engaged with short walks and other activities, as appropriate, since active people are happier and healthier.

Light housekeeping: We'll maintain a clean and tidy environment in the main living areas of the client’s home, including his or her bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen.

Meal planning/preparation: We plan and prepare nutritious meals for our clients.
