What is Personal & Companion Care

Personal & Companion Care is a service that allows consumers who may be experiencing difficulties with daily activities, to stay in their home. Personal Care Aids provide in- home services that include homemaking, companion care or live-in care.


Homemaking includes assistance with daily living such as light housekeeping, laundry, grocery shopping, meal preparation, medication reminders, and running errands.

Companion Care

Companion care includes assistance on social outings, recreational activities, reading to, and conversing with the customer. Companion care may also include sitting with a customer and providing emotional support.

Overnight/Live-In Care

Overnight/Live-In care provides a Personal Care Aid to assist you 24/7. This care is typically a combination of homemaking and companion care. On some cases, the customers have the same Personal Care Aid givers for a 24/7 period and provide a place to sleep.
