Our Care Companion and Personal Care Companion programs combine our Domestic Companion service with an in home caregiver that is experienced in assisting seniors with their activities of daily living. These self-care tasks include:
- Dressing & Grooming
- Bathing & Hygiene
- Using The Toilet
- Continence (Urinary and/or Bowel Control)
- Mobility & Transferring
If you would like to research how medical professionals assess ADL's, and senior health in general, a good place to start is the American Geriatrics Society's Health Assessment page.
Most seniors who prefer Care Companionship services are dealing with disabilities that limit what they can do. And their family is overwhelmed by trying to personally provide necessary assistance and care.
