Companion Care Services
Studies have shown that having regular social interactions, including simple conversation, can prolong life and improve memory and cognitive function in older individuals. Try as we might, it can be difficult to carve out regular time in our schedule to be with our aging loved ones on a regular basis. Let Friends of the Family Home Care fill the gap for you, helping to interact and encourage your loved one when you can’t be there.

We offer a full line of non-medical interactive care, a program we call Companion Care, to help stimulate your loved one’s mind and keep them as active as possible.

Who Can Benefit from Companion Care Services?
Companion Care is perfect for older individuals living at home who could use more regular attention and interaction, especially those suffering from a degenerative disease like Alzheimer’s disease. Regular social interaction, and living an active life full of activities and friends and family, has been shown to slow the disease and help improve mental and physical condition of patients across the board. The richer and fuller the life, the more desire there is to live it.
