Companion Care for the Elderly in Overland Park, KS Kansas City, MO, and surrounding areas
Comfort Keepers Companion Care provides uplifting friendship and caring for your loved one
We at Comfort Keepers® are well aware of the profound effects that socialization and companionship can have on the mental health and well-being of the elderly. Opportunities to interact with people and develop relationships with friends, family, neighbors, and community members can help alleviate depression symptoms, minimize elder isolation and loneliness, and potentially lower the risk of dementia.
Spending time with our caregivers provides your loved one with someone to help around the house or cook a meal and a friend who offers social connection and a companion who may assist them in returning to the activities that bring them joy.
What does companion care entail?
Companionship, also known as companion care, is a type of care that gives emotional support, camaraderie and socializing. The following are examples of everyday companion care activities in the home:
- Mental stimulation, such as playing games or listening to music, and conversation
- Preparing meals and spending time together over breakfast, lunch, or dinner
- A light activity, such as a walk or some time spent outside, is recommended.
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- Shopping for groceries and doing errands
- Transportation to and from social events and appointments
- Personal hygiene and grooming reminders
- Reminders to take medications
We focus on activities that offer delight, give mental stimulation, and promote physical and emotional well-being at Comfort Keepers. Our caregivers communicate with a client's loved ones frequently to update them on their progress, answer questions, and check-in by offering respite care.
