Senior Companion Care in Calgary

Ohana Care provides trusted companionship for you or your loved one through feel-good activities, stimulating conversations, assistance with chores, transportation to appointments, or accompaniment to social events.

What is Companion Care?

Companion care is a form of support provided by a caregiver who enhances the day-to-day life of adults with disabilities or aging loved ones by taking the role of a family member or friend. Companions take the time to enjoy the good times, provide emotional support, and assist with any non-medical needs, such as the need for clients to belong, express their uniqueness, be themselves, and feel heard.

Intellectual Wellness

We’ll support intellectual wellness through readings, purposeful conversations, and games. This stimulation is particularly important for seniors with cognitive decline to maintain current knowledge and build new brain connections to remain independent longer.

Emotional Wellness

Our companions will support you or your loved one with feel-good activities based on present and past interests, such as signing, volunteering, baking, dancing, or preparing meals. These emotional wellness activities can encourage a trip down memory lane, give a sense of purpose, encourage laughter, and help reduce anxiety.

Social Wellness

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

Physical Wellness

We believe physical wellness goes beyond exercise and includes hydration, skincare, healthy meal preparation, and more. Staying active can be done at any level, and our companions have tons of exciting activities to keep seniors moving and engaged in their personal care and physical wellness.

Companions provide emotional support, non-medical services, and social interaction, such as helping with daily living through grocery shopping, light housekeeping, meaningful conversations, and playing games. In contrast, caregivers can provide companionship, basic medical services, and personal care support.

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

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

To the outside world, the relationship between a senior and a companion looks like two friends or a senior and their grandchild/child having a good time. Due to our companions and caregivers not wearing a uniform, it’s unlikely that you could identify our staff members when in the community.

To the family, a companion is a partner who cares for and supports their elderly loved one. The companion can report to the family when they identify unmet needs or have additional ideas on improving the senior’s quality of life.

To the client, a companion is an ally, confidant, and friend they can rely on while keeping their independence. The companion and the client can form strong friendships and bonds based on their experiences together and the challenges they overcome with one another.
