Companion Care Services For Seniors

Professional and empathetic companion caregivers for mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

What Are Companion Care Services?

Companionship is a critical human need that can often go overlooked. The fact is that meaningful interactions with other people can be greatly beneficial to our health and well-being. Many seniors live alone in their homes, due to a loss of a partner or spouse, or family moving away, and this isolation can lead to feelings of loneliness and depression that negatively impact both mental and physical health.

Nova Home Care companion care services for seniors aim to prevent the negative impacts of isolation by providing an in-home companion caregiver to engage in positive and fulfilling social interaction with our clients. These acts of companionship stimulate the mind, fulfill the need for human contact, and promote a healthy, active life at home. At Nova Home Care, we know that each person has different needs and interests, so our qualified and compassionate companion caregivers offer personalized senior companionship services, including:

Companion Care
  • Conversation - from small talk to sharing stories and experiences
  • Playing games - e.g., cards, chess, board games, puzzles
  • Help with medications - maintaining adherence to a schedule
  • Company while taking walks or exercising - healthy for the body and mind
  • Social activity - organizing gatherings with friends or family members
  • Grocery shopping and meal prep - daily chores made easy with a helping hand and pleasant company
  • Planning and organization - discussion and advice regarding things such as budgeting, scheduling, or using technology

Benefits Of Companion Care For Seniors

Having an in-home companion carer can help older adults avoid feelings of isolation and loneliness that come with living alone at home. Although many seniors prefer to age in place at home rather than move to an institution, family and friends can’t always be there for them to provide the companionship that brings warmth and comfort to daily life.

By hiring a companion caregiver from Nova Home Care, you can be sure that your loved one will spend time with someone who is both passionate about caring for our elderly community members and is trained in the best practices to support the client’s health, safety, and well-being. In-home care has proven to have more physical and mental health benefits than a nursing home. The benefits increase even more when seniors have an individualized, personalized relationship with their caregiver. Having someone to talk to about a favorite TV show, sports team, or local events can make a world of difference, but companionship means much more than just conversation. Companionship care means your loved one will have:

Personal Care
  • Mental stimulation to keep the mind active and sharp in old age
  • Emotional support
  • A chance to share their hobbies and interests or explore new ones
  • Help with keeping a routine, including exercise and medications
  • A smile and a sympathetic ear whenever needed
  • Regular contact with another person
  • Someone around to help in case of a fall or other emergency

Companion services for seniors also benefit the extended family. Often, due to the demands of work, moving away from home, or other family obligations, we can struggle to provide an elderly relative with the companionship they need and suffer from stress or guilt as a result. When you get a companion caregiver from Nova Home Care, you can rest easy knowing that your loved one has a dedicated, dependable caregiver around to provide company, help with daily activities, and look out for their well-being. That way, you can worry less when you are away and focus on the quality of your time when you are together.

What Is The Difference Between Caregiving And Companionship?

While caregiving primarily concerns itself with the physical health and safety needs of the client (e.g., personal grooming, assistance with mobility, housekeeping, and chores), companionship focuses on mental and emotional health through personal social interaction. A companion caregiver must be empathetic, friendly, open, and attentive–qualities we look for in all our employees.

Many seniors will require a mix of caregiving and companionship, and Nova Home Care caregivers are trained in both aspects of care. When you contact Nova Home Care, we will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that covers all of your loved one’s needs.

Our Team

Our caregivers are all trained and vetted to provide the highest standards of care. Many of them started with Nova Home Care as family caregivers looking after their elderly relatives and have carried on that passion for helping others and supporting our senior community members in their work for other Nova clients. We look for people who are friendly, empathetic, and responsible–natural caregivers who love what they do. In many cases, clients have developed lasting friendships and strong bonds of trust with their caregivers while continuing to live a dignified, independent life at home.

Personalized Companion Care

At Nova Home Care, we appreciate that everyone is an individual with unique care needs and deserves a say in how their care is carried out. That’s why we offer personalized care tailored to each client’s particular needs and preferences. This is especially important when it comes to companion care, as the client’s personality, hobbies, and interests should all be taken into account.


How Much Does Companion Care Cost?

You may not have to pay out of pocket for companion care services, as they can often be covered by insurance or government benefits. Our services are free for those on full Medicaid and for those who are eligible for the Aged & Disabled Waiver, and you may qualify for government assistance without realizing it. Our expert team of care coordinators works with state agencies to make sure that you get all the care benefits you may be eligible for.

Additionally, if you or a family member wish to be officially recognized as a companion caregiver for your loved one, we can arrange to vet and employ the family caregiver and provide support, training, salary, and benefits.

Getting Started

The care journey begins with an assessment process that is carried out with the participation of the client and family members to help us develop a customized care plan.
