Connecticut In-Home Assistance is a name you can trust for professional elderly in-home care. Aside from tending to cleaning and daily chores, and addressing your loved one’s personal and medical needs, companion care is a bonus for elderly individuals or those with cognitive impairments who need some extra supervision at home. Our aides can provide home care assistance in the form of help with:
Basic Household Tasks
Clients receive help with organizing the mail, arranging medical and other appointments, caring for plants, and feeding/walking pets.
Includes reminders to take medication, monitoring a loved one’s diet and eating habits, and addressing any safety concerns around the house.
Companions can transport or escort a senior to doctor’s appointments or religious services, or for grocery shopping, visiting family, or going out socially.
Emotional and Mental Support
In-home assistance for elderly clients isn’t only about physical help; home care aides engage in conversation, play games, and walk outdoors with their clients to boost their spirits.
Each caregiver we employ can prepare meals and snacks, go grocery shopping, and clean beds, rooms, and closets. From vacuuming and dusting to providing help with dressing, bathing, and toileting, they are experienced and trained in all aspects of live-in assistance.
Benefits of Companion Care for Hartford Seniors
Seniors need companionship as much as anyone else. They need company while their family members are living their own lives and as they lose touch with friends. Companion care offers many psychological benefits. Like many home care agencies in CT, we’re aware of the emotional difficulties elders can face. Whether your loved one most needs long-term care or companion services for elderly at home, Connecticut In-Home Assistance can help.
Help with Daily Tasks
Seniors can trust our aides to cook, clean, and feed them. Despite their difficulties and frustrations, clients can depend on someone who is always there and not worry about burdening family members and friends.
A Sense of Security
As we age, it can become scary to be home alone, but companions are trained to make clients feel more secure. Elderly companions know how to handle different situations, from strangers at the door to emergencies like power outages or stove fires.
Someone to Talk To
A companion can offer a direct line of communication, or simply listen to their client’s thoughts, opinions, and fears. Companions and homemakers can make a welcoming environment for self-expression. For seniors who have lost their sense of self, the interaction can bring back their confidence and self-esteem.
