Are you finding it more and more difficult to provide day-to-day care for your parent or loved one?

Would you like to be able to enjoy the time you have with your loved one rather than focusing on what needs to get done? If so, a Home Connection Companion might be right for you.

Home Connection Companions is dedicated to providing caring, compassionate non- medical companionship to private residences, assisted living facilities and senior housing complexes.

We offer a variety of services including social interaction, meal preparation, transportation and accompaniment to medical or other appointments, and companionship.

A companion in the past was someone with whom you broke bread. The word companion derives from two Latin words: cum, the word for "with" and panis, the word for bread. Our companions do that and much more. We provide comprehensive non-medical assistance to seniors in order to keep them independent, healthy and happy. Having the peace of mind that your loved one is in the presence of a caring person, attentive to all their needs is the greatest service we provide. We also provide social interaction and home assistance.

During their time with our companion, your loved one might wish to engage in some activities. The following is a list of common things our companions do:

Play board games.
Read together.
Accompany to a movie or play.
Go to a museum or gallery.
Accompany to religious services.
Reminisce.
Discuss world events.
Prepare a light meal, snack, coffee, tea etc.
Enjoy a lunch.
Knit and crochet.
Take walks.
Go shopping together.
Do household tasks (laundry, vacuuming, organization).
Help take care of pets.
Provide transportation to and from appointments, shopping etc.
Be present at appointments.

One of the most requested services of our home companion care is transportation. If your loved one has a vehicle, our companion can drive them to and from appointments and shopping at no additional cost.

Our Process starts with an opportunity to meet and talk about needs.

During the initial visit, our staff will ask questions to help us determine what it is your loved one wants to do during their companion time. Their likes and dislikes in any aspect will be noted. After considering these preferences, we choose a companion that will be the right fit.
