Senior Companion Care in Calgary

We provide trusted companionship for you or your loved one, whether it be through stimulating conversations, feel-good activities, transportation to appointments, assistance with chores, or accompaniment to social events.

What is Companion Care?

Companion care is care provided by a professional who enhances the life of a client by taking the role of a friend or family member. The companion takes the time to enjoy the good times, provide emotional support, and address any non-medical needs, such as the need for seniors or adults with disabilities to feel heard, to belong, to be themselves, and to express their uniqueness.

In Addition To Elderly Companion Care

We also offer a range of senior home care services in Calgary, AB. Contact us if you need additional senior care services to meet your unique needs.

Intellectual Wellness

Stimulation through games, readings, or purposeful conversations. This is particularly important for older adults with cognitive decline to maintain their current knowledge and build new connections in their brains to remain independent longer.

Emotional Wellness

Feel-good activities based on a person’s past and present interests such as baking and preparing meals, singing, dancing, or volunteering. These activities can give a sense of purpose, encourage a trip down memory lane, help reduce anxiety, and encourage laughter.

Social Wellness

Activities that reduce boredom, loneliness and social isolation such as community events, social board games, and church or support groups. These activities encourage seniors to present themselves at their best and can be done at home or in the outside world.

Physical Wellness

Physical wellness goes beyond exercise: it also includes healthy meal preparation, hydration, skincare, and more. Staying active can be done at any level, and our team has tons of fun ideas to keep seniors moving and engaged in their personal care.

Seniors and older adults often experience the following benefits from companionship:

  • Reduced feelings of social isolation and loneliness.
  • The ability to age in place in the comfort of their own homes.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Greater life satisfaction.
  • Reduced risk of developing age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

To the outside world, it looks like two friends or a senior and their child/grandchild having a good time. Since our caregivers and companions don’t wear a uniform, you would probably not be able to identify our staff when out in the community.

To the family, a companion is a partner in caring for their loved one. The companion can report to the family when they identify unmet needs or have ideas on how to improve their lives.

To the client, a companion is an ally in their goal of keeping their independence, a confidant, a friend they can rely on. The companion and the clients can form strong bonds and friendships based on their experiences together and the obstacles they overcome together.
