What is companion care?
Companion care, or companionship, provides emotional support, friendship, and socialization. At Comfort Keepers, we focus on activities that bring joy, provide mental stimulation, and encourage physical and emotional wellbeing. Our caregivers regularly communicate with a client’s loved ones to share progress, answer questions, and check in by providing companion care.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Our caregivers are trained and skilled in a broad range of care services that support home companion care and senior mental health. This includes:
Nutrition and Meal Prep
Our caregivers can assist with grocery shopping and meal preparation and support physician-prescribed nutrition and diet plans. Diet impacts overall well-being in a big way and decreases the likelihood of many common health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Whether someone is seeking help following a special diet or looking for companionship in the kitchen, our caregivers can assist necessary for wholesome at-home meals. Our goal is to make mealtime both healthy and enjoyable.
Conversation and Companionship
Studies show that seniors who stay socially engaged enjoy an improved quality of life compared to their solitary counterparts. They also have a lower tendency to develop depression and general cognitive decline. Our caregivers provide seniors with a conversation, mealtime companionship, and camaraderie during their favorite activities. Completing tasks together helps clients and caregivers form lasting, meaningful relationships.

Our caregivers can take care of all laundry needs, either in the home or at a nearby laundromat. These services can include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away. Light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder.
