As your loved one transitions back to living at home, you may be worried about their ability to care for themselves. For some people, everyday tasks such as dental hygiene and bathing become difficult. Fortunately, our team is here to make those activities much easier for your loved one.

Helping to Keep a Clean Home
A clean home is a happy home, but your loved one may no longer be able to go about general housekeeping chores. The team at Caring Companions is always delighted to take care of those everyday housekeeping needs, from clearing the table after meals to vacuuming the floors.
We Handle Transportation to Appointments
Does your loved one have lots of doctor’s appointments to get to? Perhaps you usually transport them back and forth. But these appointments can be difficult to fit into your work schedule. If your schedule doesn’t allow for taking your family member to follow-up appointments, we can handle transportation as well. We understand that many seniors need to visit various doctors multiple times a week. This can make for a stressful experience for both you and your loved one. When our team handles all the transportation, you’ll have peace of mind your family member is receiving the care they need.
Taking Care of Errands and Shopping
Running errands and going shopping gets more complicated as one gets older. Not only might seniors have less mobility to get around stores, but they also might have a hard time driving. The team at Caring Companions is always happy to run errands for our seniors who are transitioning to home care. We’ll take care of all the items on their grocery list!
We Provide Help with Staying Active
Staying active is crucial, even for those entering their senior years. However, some individuals may have trouble safely exercising by themselves. If your loved one plans to be active after moving back home, our team can help them create a safe exercise regimen and assist them whenever possible during their workouts. We might go for a walk with your loved one or make sure they’re doing certain moves safely and correctly.
Does Your Loved One Need Medication Reminders?
As your loved one makes the transition to home health care, they probably have many different medications to keep track of daily. Perhaps in the past, they’ve managed their own prescriptions, or maybe you’ve done the bulk of the work for them. This can be time-consuming, and it’s essential that you don’t make a mistake concerning the dosage. Allow Caring Companions to take this burden off your shoulders. Our trained caregivers will remind them when it’s time to take their pills. Keep in mind, we cannot administer medications, although we can help with opening containers and reading labels.
Eliminating the Hassle of Cooking
Cooking is an enjoyable pastime for some, but an annoying chore for others. As we get older, mobility issues make cooking more difficult. If it’s no longer safe for your loved one to use a hot stove, oven, or sharp knives, our caregivers can help out at mealtime. We prepare nutritious, home-cooked meals for our clients. Plus, we’re happy to tailor our dishes to your loved one’s needs and preferences.
