Companion Home Care

Better Care Home Health Services is a family-owned agency dedicated to providing excellent and comprehensive home health care to individuals and families of Philadelphia, Delaware, Montgomery and Bucks counties. We are honored that God has blessed us with the opportunity to positively impact and change people’s lives. It is our mission to ensure that we provide the very best of care to our clients.

We offer an exceptional combination of home care and community-based social services. Our goal is to help your loved ones to continue to live safely and confidently in a familiar place they call home. Better Care provides care through caregivers who are trained and/or certified. We offer long-term, short-term, and live-in care.

As our loved ones grow older, we notice changes. They seem withdrawn, less steady on their feet, and overwhelmed by tasks that once came easily. We make efforts to visit more often, but it doesn’t feel like enough. Being far away means worrying if they’ve eaten, taken their medication, or have someone to talk to. What we wouldn’t give to find them more support and companionship.

For many families, companion care is that solution. At Better Care Home Health Services, we provide seniors with dedicated companions who become trusted friends. Far beyond just helping around the house, our caregivers offer joyful companionship and assistance to improve quality of life.

More Than Just a Helping Hand

Companion care involves so much more than basic aid with daily activities. It provides seniors with meaningful social connections and emotional support. For older adults who are isolated or lonely, this can dramatically improve both mental and physical health.

Our companions engage in fun social activities that spark nostalgia and conversation. They might reminisce over family photos, relive the golden oldies, or exchange cooking tips while preparing supper together. Starting a puzzle or playing lively rounds of Scrabble helps keep the mind sharp. Outings to the senior center, the farmers’ market, or the botanical gardens get them back into the community.

Through everyday interactions, our caregivers become attentive friends who truly understand and care about each senior. They lend emotional support during grief over losing a spouse or friend. They provide motivation to stay active and positive. They know just how your loved one likes their coffee and when they need an extra blanket at night.

At Better Care, companions empower seniors to pursue new hobbies, engage with family, and enjoy every moment, whether ordinary or extraordinary. Their reassuring presence enhances security and freedom to participate in activities.

Peace of Mind for You and Your Loved One

Having aging parents far away can stir up immense worry and guilt. You likely feel torn between respecting their independence and needing to care for them from afar. Our compassionate companions ease that stress.

At Better Care Home Health Services, we conduct extensive screenings and background checks on all caregivers before hiring them. We look for individuals who are responsible, patient, caring, and devoted to this work. Ongoing training ensures our companions provide attentive, professional care.

You can trust our team to keep your loved one safe and offer any assistance needed. Our caregivers act as your hands, heart, and help when you can’t be present. They alert family immediately with any concerns and provide regular check-ins.

Knowing your parent has a caring companion eases worries. It means they have someone to talk to, share meals with, and keep them engaged. With our assistance, they gain the flexibility to participate in activities they enjoy. Our goal is for your loved one to feel secure and uplifted in our care.

Customized Care That Fits Your Loved One’s Lifestyle

We recognize that each senior we care for is wonderfully unique. At Better Care Home Health Services, we take the time to match clients with companions who click with their personality and lifestyle. This ensures they receive dedicated support from someone they bond with.

Before beginning care, we have in-depth conversations with our clients and their families to learn about their interests, needs, and quirks:

  • Do they prefer staying in or going out?
  • What hobbies and activities do they enjoy most?
  • Do they love animals? Enjoy cooking? Have a favorite sports team?
  • What topics do they like to talk about?
  • What and who brings them comfort and joy?

Armed with this knowledge, we handpick a companion who compliments them. For example, a companion who also loves tending to their flower garden or who shares their sarcasm and wit.

While connecting socially, our caregivers also provide assistance with daily tasks like:

  • Planning and preparing healthy, delicious meals.
  • Keeping the home tidy and organized.
  • Helping with mobility around the house.
  • Providing medication reminders.
  • Helping with personal care and hygiene.
  • Scheduling medical appointments and providing transportation.
  • Assisting with correspondence.
  • Engaging in cognitive-stimulating activities.

Additionally, we collaborate closely with each client’s family members through regular check-ins and updates. This ensures open communication and that their loved one receives the best possible care.

Customizing Companion Services for Diverse Needs

At Better Care Home Health Services, we understand seniors have very diverse preferences and abilities. We work closely with each client to customize a companion care plan suited to them.

For more independent seniors, a companion provides primarily social engagement and emotional support. They might share coffee and conversation in the mornings before the client heads out to run errands or visit friends. In the evenings, they cook and dine together and enjoy sedentary activities like reading or watching a favorite show.

For clients who require more assistance, companions are there throughout the day to help with personal care, household tasks, mobility around the home, transportation, and monitoring health needs. Care is tailored to match the senior’s current abilities and adjusts accordingly over time.

No matter their individual capabilities, our goal is to nurture our clients’ autonomy and freedom of choice. Companions offer options while assisting and consulting the senior as much as possible. They work hard to accommodate each client’s wishes to make them feel empowered and respected.

Maintaining Dignity and Individuality

Our elders have a lifetime of wisdom and experiences – they have stories to share and unique personalities. At Better Care, companions uplift these qualities in every senior they care for. We train our team to honor each client’s dignity and individuality.

Companions approach every senior with patience, empathy, and respect. They take time learning clients’ likes, dislikes, quirks, and personal care preferences. This ensures each senior feels valued in their identity.

We emphasize that our clients guide all care decisions and routines. Companions offer options, ask questions, and listen. They understand upholding independence and choice is paramount to dignity.

Our team works hard to make seniors of all backgrounds and identities feel acknowledged and empowered. We believe maintaining individuality and dignity is central to aging well.
