Companion care

Faith First Healthcare in Baton Rouge is a companion care agency servicing seniors living independently who may require companion care.

Our services are designed to help seniors live safe, independent, and enriched lives.

What is Companion Care? Living alone can increase the risk of depression and other health issues for older Americans. The recent pandemic has further isolated many seniors from their family and friends. Many of us can't be there all the time for our aging loved ones who want to maintain their independence. One option to improve their quality of life is companion care.

Companion care can be beneficial in various situations, such as when seniors feel isolated from friends and family, need more social interaction, experience feelings of depression, exhibit increased forgetfulness or cognitive issues, have trouble with daily activities, need transportation to appointments, or require help with medication reminders.

Companion care not only enhances the quality of life but also ensures that seniors can remain safely and independently in their own homes. It's important to note that companion care differs from personal care in that it does not involve physical touch.

Services The primary role of a companion is to offer social and emotional support. Companions may also provide home care services like meal preparation and light housekeeping. They can run errands together, taking the senior grocery shopping, to the salon or barber, to doctor appointments, or social events. They can also run errands if the senior is unable to go out. Our Companion Care services include: -

  • Caring companionship and conversation

  • Help with hobbies

  • Scrapbooking and games

  • Gardening

  • Sports and news discussions

  • General shopping and errands

  • Transportation to appointments

  • Assistance with pet care

  • Meal preparation

  • Light housekeeping

  • Fall prevention recommendations

  • Errands (prescription pick-up, dry cleaning, etc.)

  • Grocery shopping

  • Home safety evaluation

  • Short-term care

Our goal is to provide social and emotional support to seniors living alone. Companions can also assist with daily activities, like running errands or accompanying seniors on shopping trips. Our caregivers are trained in memory care, aiding individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia.

Companions may visit daily, a few times a week, or just once a week. The care schedule is customized based on individual needs Matching Your Loved One to the Right Caregiver We are passionate about matching our clients with caregivers and fostering new friendships in the process. Factors we consider when determining the best caregiver fit include medical and physical needs, personality preferences, interests and hobbies, pets, and daily activities.
