Our Right Transition Program can Help!
When your senior loved-one is discharged from the hospital, the effects of their condition aren’t necessarily gone when once they return home. This often makes it difficult for seniors trying to adjust back to daily life, increasing the risk of re-admission. Care angels Right Transitions program can help make that transition back to home easier by providing the following in-home senior care services:
- Communication with family and healthcare providers. Talking to the doctors and family ensures that everyone has the same information, which is an important step toward healthy recovery for all seniors.
- Regular visits. Our caregivers can check in on your family member to know that you’re doing well and getting better.
- Medication reminders. One of the main reasons for a slower recovery is improper use of medications. We can help make sure that they’re taking what they need, when they need it.
- Transportation to doctor appointments. Regular doctor visits are important to most people’s recovery. If you aren’t able to drive yourself, those appointments can be hard to keep. We can get them where they need to go.
- Meal preparation. Eating nutritious meals is the foundation of health. We can fix meals for any diet – even for special dietary requirements such as diabetes or congestive heart failure.

Help You Need,Care Angels
Maybe you’ve noticed Mom and Dad’s house starting to decline: counters are dirty, shelves undusted. Or perhaps your sister’s health is waning; she’s growing older and forgets to take her medications. Whatever the signs, you’re beginning to wonder if your loved one needs help around the house. Companionship care and homemaking offer just that: nonclinical assistance for those who need it, without leaving the comfort of home.
What Is Companionship Care and Homemaking?
From doing the laundry and taking out the garbage to reading out loud or playing cards, professionals in companionship care and homemaking serve as another body within the home. They’re available to help remind patients when to take their medications, keep up around the house and even drive someone to a hair appointment. Both services differ slightly in how they work.
The purpose of companionship care is to offer company and friendship. Companions may help with certain household chores, such as laying out towels before a shower, but their primary purpose is to spend time with the patient. Grown children may want to hire companions to keep an eye on their aging parents, for example. Some of the services offered by companionship care include:
- Reading a book aloud
- Playing games
- Accompanying the patient for a walk outside
- Letter writing
- Monitoring the home
Think of homemaking as an addition to companionship care. With a homemaker, patients will receive all the benefits of a companion—such as transportation—but with added bonuses. Homemaking extends to include tasks such as cooking, cleaning and even grocery shopping. Some of the services offered by homemaking include:
- Taking out the garbage
- Light housekeeping
- Respite care
Cheaper Than Home Health Aides
Companionship care and homemaking do not include personal, hands-on care. For example, companions cannot help patients bathe or take their medications. Instead, they can prepare the bath and remind patients to take their medications. Most states require additional licensing for personal, hands-on care. Therefore, hiring companions or homemakers will cost less than hiring a home health aide, who undergoes additional training and needs a state license to provide hands-on care. The difference in cost can run $4-5 less per hour.
Benefits of Companionship Care and Homemaking
From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companionship care and homemaking have many benefits for patients. If you suspect your loved one isn’t eating well, for example, having a homemaker available to cook nutritious meals can turn around your family member’s health. Here are just a few of the benefits these services offer:
- Mental (cognitive) stimulation
- Increased mobility due to transportation services
- Improvement in health, both physical and mental
- Safety supervision
