What is Companion Care at Home?
Companion care at home is a type of non-medical home care in which a caregiver assists seniors with daily activities and provides socialization and emotional support. Companion care can include tasks like meal preparation, grocery shopping, light housekeeping, and errand running. It can also include activities like playing video games, reading, and going for walks.
An estimated 34.2 million adults in the United States provided unpaid care to an adult in 2018, according to a study conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP. 44% of those caregivers provided companion care to the care recipient, such as assistance with activities of daily living.
The Benefits of Companion Care
One of the primary advantages of in-home companion care is that it allows seniors to remain in their homes while receiving the assistance they require to maintain their independence and quality of life. In-home care can also be less expensive than other options, such as assisted living or nursing homes. Furthermore, receiving home care can be more comfortable and familiar for seniors, reducing feelings of isolation and anxiety.
Does Medicare Pay for Companion Care Services?
It’s important to note that Medicare typically does not cover companion care services because they are considered non-medical in nature. However, some states and private insurance plans may cover these services, so check with your individual insurance plan or a senior care advisor to find out what types of home care services are covered.
How Do Families Choose the Right Companion Care Agency?
It is critical to work with a reputable and licensed companion care agency when looking for companion care services. Look for caregivers who have passed background checks and have experience and training working with seniors. It is important to have clear communication with your caregiver about your specific tasks and needs, in addition to a way to regularly check on the quality of care being provided. If a loved one is receiving home care, it is critical to communicate with the caregiver and schedule regular check-ins to ensure that the loved one is comfortable, safe, and receiving appropriate care.
