Companions & Caregivers
A companion is an individual who assists the disabled or elderly with daily activities, perform various household tasks and run errands. Duties consist of helping clients with daily exercise and mobility, performing various personal care—such as personal hygiene, dressing, eating, and more. They assist clients with moving in and out of bed, cars, wheelchairs, and baths. Companions also take clients to doctor appointments and social gatherings.
Companions/caregivers may complete light housekeeping and cooking duties. They also check vital signs and dispense medication properly, answer and deliver messages and complete all duties pertaining to well-being of their client. They may travel as needed for a specific amount of time. These positions can be either live-in or live-out.
