Companionship for seniors
Uplifting care and friendship for your loved one
Firstly, at In-Home Care St Louis, we understand the positive effects that socialization and companionship can have on elderly mental health and well-being. Opportunities to engage with others and grow relationships with friends, family members, neighbors and community can help improve symptoms of depression, ease feelings of senior isolation, and even reduce the risk of dementia.
By spending time with our St Louis caregivers, your loved one not only has someone at the ready to help around the house or help prepare a meal, they also have a friend who offers social connection and a companion who can help them get back to doing the things that bring them joy.
What is companion care?
Companion care provides emotional support, friendship, and socialization for seniors. As a result, common home companion care activities include:
- Conversation and mental stimulation, such as playing games or listening to music
- Meal prep and time spent together over breakfast, lunch or dinner
- Light activity, such as a walk or time spent outside
- Laundry and light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping and errands
- Transportation to and from appointments and social events
- Reminders for personal care and grooming
- Medication reminders
At In-Home Care St Louis, we focus on activities that bring joy, provide mental stimulation, and encourage physical and emotional wellbeing. As a result, our caregivers are in regular communication with a client’s loved ones to share progress, answer questions, and simply check in by providing companion care.
A holistic approach
Firstly, caring for the whole person is at the center of our Interactive Caregiving™ philosophy. It’s a holistic approach that cares for the mind, body, spirit, and well-being of its patient. Therefore, instead of doing random things for your loved one, we use every moment to focus on tasks and activities that increase engagement and fulfillment. We differentiate ourselves from other home care agencies through Interactive Caregiving™, which elevates the spirits of our clients and their families.
