Companion Care Services
Your Caring Companion
Research has proven that social contact enhances quality of life. Promedcare provides companion services personalized for our clients, from a few hours a day to around-the-clock continuous care. Whether it’s simply having conversation or sitting down to eat a meal together, our services are designed to help clients retain their independence and keep them happy, healthy, and safe at home.
Conversation and Companionship
Promedcare personnel are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life for clients of all ages.
Promedcare personnel prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many clients do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps them get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
These services can be done in either the client’s home or a laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Promedcare involves clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Promedcare companions 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. Promedcare caregivers will use any coupons provided.
Promedcare personnel provide light housekeeping services include 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.
Promedcare does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
Promedcare personnel provides transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go.
Although Promedcare personnel cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. Promedcare can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
Promedcare caregivers assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other grooming tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance.
Ironing and Mending
Many of our care providers have the ability to assist by ironing or mending clothes when the need arises.
