  • Companion Care

Companion Care

Conversation and Companionship

Sometimes all our clients want is someone to sit and have a conversation with them. Our caregivers are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this enhances the health, happiness and quality of life of seniors.

Meal Preparation

Our caregivers prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps seniors get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.

Laundry

This service includes washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Our caregivers involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.

Light Housekeeping

Our light housekeeping services comprises of  vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. HisGrip Home Care does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.

Grocery Shopping/Errands

Our caregivers shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Our caregivers will use any coupons provided.

Medication Reminders

Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. Our caregivers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.

Other Companion Care tasks:

  • Empty trash and set it out for pickup
  • Assistance with pets
  • Care of house plants
  • Assistance with organization, closets, cabinets, calendar, photos, coupons, mail

All our services are started by having a Registered Nurse conduct an initial assessment. In addition to the initial assessment, the Registered Nurse manages the care by conducting supervisory visits regularly. All caregivers are trained on the procedure to follow in emergencies and they must observe, report and document any change in the client’s condition.
