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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
All of our care plans are flexible and can be customized to suit your specific companionship needs. Since we prioritize fostering meaningful relationships rather than just providing task-oriented care, we require a minimum of four hours per visit.
At Ohana Care, we stand out from other companion care providers as we have a focus on building meaningful relationships and supporting clients. From the intake process through our entire journey together, we always ensure we match you or your loved one with the most appropriate caregiver possible.
Unlike most companion care providers, Ohana Care’s companions wear their regular clothes during hours of companionship. This is to provide more discretion to our clients who need extra community support and allows them to dress for the occasion and fit in while ensuring their client has a wonderful experience.

We assess your healthcare needs and discuss how we can help.
We pair you with licensed health care aides or licensed practitioner nurses based on personal preferences, needs, and location.
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:
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.
