Flexible, Specialized Companion Care
Our companion care service, Our Senior Friends™, is designed to make life easier for our patients, but the main goal of this service is to eliminate loneliness and isolation.
In-Home Companion Care is an excellent option for seniors who live alone or are far away from family members. Beaches Home Care offers seniors companionship, laughter, and security. Companion Care services can assist seniors who are losing energy, motivation, or physical well-being.
Our Senior Friends™ are caring sitters who can help with mobility, hobbies, and attending social events. They can also simply relax and converse with your loved one.
At Beaches Home Care we will take the time to “get to know your loved one” and offer a Senior Friend™ to match.
