Companion Care Services

Companion Caregivers

Have you considered employing a companion for your loved one but you're not sure if its appropriate? From The Heart Elder Care is here to help with that decision. 

If you're spending at least a couple of hours 2 or 3 days a week to care for an elderly loved one then employing an hourly-based companion maybe your best option. Companions work in a strictly "hands-off" environment - no "hands-on" personal care is provided. (All we require is a minimum of 4 consecutive hours, twice a week.)

If your loved one requires help with any of the following on a daily basis we can help:

  • Reminding to take medications
  • Meal preparation and clean up
  • Light Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Changing linens
  • Accompanying to medical or other appointments
