Companion care, the hub of Stay at Home’s Total Family Care Team

Many elderly people need help staying at home, but they also need help in other areas of their lives. This is why each Stay at Home agency assembles a Total Family Care Team made up of trusted providers of companion care, medical care, facility care, legal planning, financial planning, mortuary planning, home maintenance, and medical equipment.

Companion care

Most elderly people want to live at home as long as possible. Given this reality, their first meeting with a Stay at Home caregiver will often be their introduction to senior care services.

Stay at Home provides a range of services to our elderly clients. If all you need is a friendly taxi service to get to errands and appointments, we’re happy to oblige. But we’re also there for more serious need, and we can be with a client 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if need be.

In between, we help with the activities of daily living, including cooking, shopping, laundry, and light housekeeping. We’re also there for companionship, ensuring that our clients have someone to gab and with.

Here are four important questions we ask potential clients and their families as they consider companion care:

  1. How important is it for your loved one to stay in their own a home?
  2. Do you have family members who can help in providing care?
  3. Do you have a plan to address existing or future care issues?
  4. Have you planned for care at home in advance of the need?

Of course, the answers to these questions will help determine the specific service and the level of care an elderly client will need. During our initial interview, we also begin exploring other needs you may have in the future.
