Companion services are one-on-one services that provide our clients reassurance by having an individual present in the home or in an acute setting such as a hospital or nursing and rehabilitation center. The companion may act as an advocate for the patient by requesting assistance, but at no time may a companion provide "hands-on" care. Our companions engage in conversation with clients and participate in activities such as reading or playing cards, and are available to call for help should the need arise. Companions are present when family members cannot be there, providing peace of mind and a friendly face. Dependent upon a client's condition, our companions may be able to provide assistance in getting a client to the bathroom, as well as assisting with feeding, if necessary.
For Companion Services you can trust, call Gurwin Home Care Agency at (631) 493-1282. Call anytime, day or night - we're always ready to assist you.
