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.
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.
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 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.
Ohana Care uses the Best Friends™ Approach with all our senior home care services and home care clients. Our trained companions come to you, our beloved clients, wherever you are in the city and the surrounding areas. Our approach focuses on positive interactions that enhance all dimensions of well-being.
Ohana Care stands out from other companion care providers because our companions have a focus on supporting our clients and building meaningful relationships. From the beginning of the intake process, we always ensure that we are matching your loved one with the most appropriate caregiver.
Unlike most companies, Ohana Care companions wear their regular clothes during their hours of companionship. This is to provide more discretion to our clients who need extra support out in the community and gives them the ability to dress for the occasion to fit in as much as possible while ensuring their client has a great experience.

Companions provide social interaction, emotional support and non-medical services such as helping with daily living through light housekeeping and grocery shopping or playing games and having good conversations. Caregivers can provide companionship along with personal care and basic medical services.
Seniors and older adults often experience the following benefits from companionship:
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.
