Companion Care - Enjoy life to the fullest

Too often, with age comes isolation and loneliness. Most elders prefer to remain in their own homes as they age, but one of the risks is lack of social interaction. It may start with the loss of a spouse, physical decline such as the loss of driving ability, decreased vision or hearing. Busy family members living nearby or at a distance may feel at a loss on how to help their loved one.

Our mission at ADL Homecare is to ease that loneliness and bring joy and companionship into your life. Our caregivers can also provide transportation to the theater, community festivals, doctor, church or coffee shop.

Companion care is available from 1 hour to 24 hours. It is an excellent choice for seniors who live alone or do not have a lot of family and friends nearby. It also works well for short-term respite care. The primary caregiver gets a much-needed break, and the client has fun interacting with another caring person.

ADL Homecare companion care services include meal monitoring, transportation planning visits and trips, help with minor tasks, and of course, companionship. The following is a full list of services:
