Care Services

The mission of Companions & Home Helpers is to encourage healthy and active daily living for loved ones by providing personalized, non-medical supplemental home-care. Our services assist the elderly, individuals with disabilities and ailments, expectant moms & new families that require and desire assistance with daily activities.

 

We provide help anywhere a family needs us – at home, in the hospital, at a rehabilitation center, nursing home, retirement community, etc. We are available to help from 2 to 24 hours a day, seven days a week at your convenience.

 

Our Care Services consist of the following and many more…


CARING COMPANIONSHIP – We provide friendly visits with warm smiles, helping hands, enjoyable conversation, caring hearts and plenty of personal encouragement. From reading aloud to going for nice walks through the park, our caregivers focus on providing social and physical stimulation (even in the form of therapy) to keep individuals active and engaged.

 

GENERAL ASSISTANCE – Everyday chores such as housekeeping, laundry, preparing meals, medication management or organizing personal affairs often present challenges to individuals. Our caring staff can assist with household responsibilities making life easier for you and your loved ones.

 

PERSONAL CARE – Dressing, grooming, hygiene and transferring from bed to sofa or sofa to toilet are daily routines that most individuals take for granted. These and other personal care activities can often be difficult as a result of age, illness, or injury. Our caregivers can provide assistance to these challenges as part of our care services.

 

TIMELY TRANSPORTATION – Getting to and from doctor's appointments, running errands, shopping for groceries or clothes, may require assistance. We are there to help with everyday living necessities by providing your loved ones with timely transportation and accompanying them while away from home.

 

REGULAR OUTINGS – Helping to stay connected to the outside world is one our core values. We encourage a holistic healthcare for your loved ones in the accompaniment and enjoyment of daily activities such as the theatre, ballet, picnics, restaurants, and much more.

 

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT – In providing care, we realize that family is a top priority. We make recommendations and suggestions as needed to meet the specific needs of each client, ever being mindful of a person's quality of life. Whether supplementing the care provided by family members, or serving as primary caregivers, we plan our work and work according to the plan.

“In the final days of Marion’s life Nana provided Marion with great care and offered every comfort in loving and dignified manner. Nana was also very kind and friendly with my sister Carroll and I as we spent more and more time with Marion near the end. It meant a great deal to us that she was so calm and in control and focused on Marion’s needs. She was able to handle little emergencies, like the O2 machine failing, mostly on her own with only phone calls to alert us to the situations. We never doubted that Marion was never in good hands. I would like to also thank Companions & Home Helpers for always providing coverage when needed for personal time off, and each temporary person who filled in was always pleasant and helpful.”

“In eleven years of coordinating home-based care for my father, I have dealt with dozens of CNAs. Nana is among top three nurses that I have employed. I have come to know Nana fairly well, and I have been extremely impressed with the kindness and solicitude Nana has shown for my father. I like Nana, I respect her as a parent, and I respect her religious faith.”

“We have been using the services of your agency now for almost 10 months and most of that time with the employment of Adwoa as my parent’s caretaker. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we have been with Adwoa’s dedications and diligence to keeping my parents in good care and happiness in their failing years. Without her tirelessly tending to their every need, I firmly believe that they would not both be with us today. I never cease to amaze at the difficulty of her tasks and how well she accomplishes them.”

“As a health aide, Philomina’s thoroughness, diligence, and professionalism were impeccable. She was one of the most effective, intelligent, and responsible aides my parents had working for them over a 5 year period from 2005-2010. (my parents had several aides as they came and went from nursing homes). Philomena could always be counted on, whatever the situation. As a nursing aide, a cook, and fortunately a compassionate companion and friend as well, I always felt at ease with my mother under Philomina’s competent care. Philomina simply had things under control. If she needed to confer on something – my mother’s medical condition, and important message or household need – we knew she would call us, but it seemed those times were few.”
