Someone Near: Caregivers and Companionship

It can feel very comforting to have someone near. Spending time talking with another person can both uplift and inspire. Whether conversing about daily happenings, family, a recently read book, pastimes or current events, a friendly companion helps foster fulfillment of our needs for social interaction. However, changing circumstances may have an impact on the presence of the people closest to us. Family members may no longer live in the same area, spouses may no longer be with us, and the sounds that used to fill the halls may only be heard in memory. Living alone can be quite an adjustment, and further challenges can arise when living alone combines with finding yourself in need of daily support.

Concerns regarding self-care capabilities are common when faced with health conditions, injuries or the effects of aging. When in need of daily living assistance, Aqua Home Care can help. We have a reputable registry of experienced, trusted caregivers with the availability to provide care when it is needed most. In-home care allows individuals to continue living at home for as long as possible by ensuring someone is always nearby to assist with everyday needs. We find that along with having daily needs met, in-home care recipients also benefit from the companionship that develops with their caregivers. Some of the ways we have seen caregivers and their clients build bonds of companionship include:

  • Having conversations
  • Going to stores, appointments and running errands together
  • Reading together
  • Sharing memories with one another
  • Taking walks
  • Playing games
  • Being near
  • And more

Our Aqua Home Care team carefully matches individuals with caregivers based on needs and personality. This helps to ensure a positive in-home care experience where needs are effectively met and trusted bonds are formed. When care and companionship combine, peace of mind becomes more deeply rooted. Knowing that someone is near who truly cares can make a world of difference. For quality in-home care services, listening ears and welcoming hearts, Aqua Home Care is only a phone call away.
