Senior Companion Care Services in Irvine

Helping Seniors Stay Connected through Home Companionship

Aging adults, depending on their health and living situations, have a variety of needs. One need that is important for all seniors, whether they are living alone, in a group home or in an assisted living facility, is companionship.

Senior home companion care services can help seniors with many necessary activities, such as serving meals and providing medication reminders, but one of the most crucial services they provide is, simply, companionship. Companions go beyond caregiving and provide a social connection that many seniors lack, sharing with them the types of simple social activities that enrich all our daily lives.

Acti-Kare Companion Care Services

The most important tool that our trained companions bring with them is compassion, a caring attitude that is attentive to the emotional needs of their client. Companion care sessions are also a chance for the caregiver to “check in” on the senior’s overall well-being. Companion care is an important adjunct to physical care services, like personal grooming or changing bed linens, since it addresses the whole person, body and spirit. Many seniors are less verbal in their elderly years, so, in addition to conversational cues, an attentive companion caregiver may pick up on changes in mood, extra fatigue or other signs the client may need additional help or special attention.

No matter their living or health situation, seniors can benefit from the many services provided by a companion caregiver. Beyond standard home caregiver duties, such as the activities of daily living, some of the areas a companion may help with include:

  • Safety and security checks
  • Managing daily routines
  • Mail and personal correspondence
  • Small home projects
  • Hobbies and games
  • Reminders (medications, appointments, etc.)
  • Reading and conversation
  • Memory care activities
  • Physical movement
  • Trips outdoors to benefit from fresh air and sunshine
  • Transportation for errands and appointments
  • Attendant care during social events and outings

Our companion caregiver will also interact with family members, to keep them apprised of the activities and well-being of their loved one.

Active Companion Care: Acti-Kare means Activity-Based Care

Acti-Vate, our activity-based care program, is included as part of our everyday caregiver services. This proactive life-enhancing program adds to the effectiveness of our companionship care program. Acti-Kare believes that all individuals can benefit from simple, stimulating and fun activities, either physical or mental. And, activities that are structured to improve the individual’s overall functioning, such as memory games or physical movement exercises, are an effective tool for helping to improve and maintain functions such as memory, mood and mobility. Our caregivers are trained and ready to incorporate elements of the Acti-Vate program in the companionship care program when they think their client will benefit and enjoy these life-enhancing activities.

Companionship is vital to seniors who may feel isolated and alone. Affordable companionship services can be a life-saver to many elderly adults who look forward to their caregiver visits and count on their companions to provide them with compassionate care and good company, too.

My husband and I both work a lot it was becoming more and more difficult to provide the right care for my mother-in-law. We both felt we should find an in-home service. I talked with several companies but i was impressed with the representative of Acti-Kare. He seemed to be really concerned about finding the right care for us and explained everything very well. After some careful consideration, we decided to move forward. We have been very pleased with the worker Joanna, she is very pleasant & positive and gets everything done that we ask. Everything has seemed to gone very smoothly. The company has been flexible with us and easy to work with. I am much more comfortable with everything now. Thank you Acti-Kare!!!

Another great review! This company should have more! If you are taking care of someone who is injured...this company simply rocks!  My fiance and I are looking after a family member who had to go through a fairly extensive surgery. The recovery time will be up to 4 months and we needed someone to provide care, unfortunately we work a lot.  After searching online, I found Acti-Kare and saw the information on Recovery Care on their web site. We had met with the owner, Glen and we were able to work out all the details very easily. He explained everything we needed to know as we're new to this.  He is sharp and very easy to deal with & and even went out of his way to give us a Starbucks gift card! The care giver has been very dependable and hard working. Our families are pleased with the service . If you need to go this route, I would highly recommend this company. Not many companies give you that feel of genuine care for your situation. I really cannot say enough, thank you Acti-Kare, and thank you Glen.

We really like working with Acti-Kare Irvine. Our situation was that we needed coverage for a family member, our schedule has been way to busy. We looked around and was somewhat apprehensive because we had not used a company before. After some calls, I ended having a meeting with Glen. We covered everything in detail and he seemed to really get it and offer some different options. There was no pressure or anything like that.. After reviewing everything very carefully we decided to go forward with Acti-Kare. Well..it ended up being a great decision. We are very happy! The caregiver is awesome, she is really nice and seemed to fit in right away. The company has done everything we requested (we had some specific requirements) and we find everyone very responsive & really nice. I would give this company a recommendation to anyone.
