Companionship Care

Certified Companionship Care Organization

Companionship care for seniors provides older adults with the assistance they require to live safely and comfortably at home. This type of home care encompasses a wide range of basic tasks and activities that many seniors find difficult to complete on their own. In other cases, these impediments can lead to seniors losing their independence. Seniors, on the other hand, can maintain their routines and age in place with companion care.

Companion caregiving is one of Right Choice’s most popular services, covering a wide range of caregiving duties. This makes it an excellent choice for seniors who need a little assistance to stay at home but do not require advanced caregiving.

What Exactly Is Companion Care?

Companion care is an in-home care service that provides assistance to the elderly and disabled adults.

Care will typically include a variety of ways to make the care recipient’s daily life easier and safer. A caregiver, for example, may run errands on behalf of a senior, such as grocery shopping or medication pickup. Caregivers will also plan and prepare regular meals, perform light housekeeping duties, and provide medication reminders at times.

In addition, this type of elder care is intended to improve the quality of life in other ways. Caregivers assist clients with favorite hobbies and activities, accompany them to appointments and social outings, and engage in friendly conversation with them.


These care activities can center a lifeline for seniors who are socially isolated. In seniors, social isolation has been shown to significantly increase the risk of health complications and mortality. Companion caregiving provides social interaction and regular companionship to isolated seniors, breaking the cycle of senior isolation.


Personal Caregiving vs. Companion Caregiving 

When selecting elder care services for a loved one, you may have to choose between companion care and personal care. As a result, understanding the distinction between the two services is advantageous.


Duties with a home care companion typically include activities such as laundry, meal preparation, and errand running. This type of care, however, does not include physical assistance with activities such as dressing, bathing, or toileting.


Personal care encompasses the basic care duties of companion caregiving as well as physical assistance and contact to clients. Non-medical assistance for chronic health conditions such as diabetes or Parkinson’s disease can also be included in personal care services.


With companion caregiving and care, most older adults who receive senior care can age in place comfortably. Seniors who require advanced care or physical assistance, on the other hand, may require personal care in order to live safely at home.

The members of the Right Choice team are fantastic! The scheduling, billing, and, most importantly, caregiver training... are all excellent. My parents have been able to stay in their own home thanks to the caregivers' attentiveness. When it comes to meals, bathing, physical therapy and medicine reminders, my parents receive assistance as needed. In addition to that, I've been able to keep track of daily activities and have had no problems with billing. Thank you, Right Choice, for giving me peace of mind knowing that my parents are receiving high-quality care while still being able to keep their more

I met Nurse Kristine. She played a very essential role in saving my dad’s life. She was very personable and super... compassionate and very attentive to his condition. Kristine used humor to keep our spirits up. She definitely went well beyond what the average nurse does simply because she has a heart of gold. Thanks for all the help and support we got from the beginning to more

My husband and I had just moved to the state of Tennessee to help his mom get around properly and safely, and not even... a month after she got diagnosed with alzheimers. I got set up with this service and that’s when our lives were changed. Right Choice has some of the best alzheimer's experts in the nation. The staff treats everyone with the most respect and support. His mom loves the changes she is making and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Thanks Right Choice Home Care!!read more

A care giver from Right Choice (I won’t mention her name because I don’t want to embarrass her) was there with my mom... up until she passed on. She thought highly of her and looked forward to the times she was there. You were so kind to her and for that we all consider you family. Thank you for being there. I imagine Right Choice Home Caregiving selected you because they only want caregivers that embody what they represent. Again, thank more
