One of life’s most challenging moments is when you realize that your independence is at risk.
Those “simple” day-to-day chores like laundry, cooking and running errands are sometimes too painful or tiresome to do yourself.
And though living alone once delivered the peace you so enjoyed, that feeling of isolation is becoming harder to bear.
Or maybe you feel helpless watching a loved one wrestle with these emotions alone.
Grand Strand Comfort Care is ready and willing to lend a helping hand.
We think of companions as close friends; we can share a laugh with confidants we can trust and people we can lean on in a time of need.
In the long-term care world, a companion is all three.
Home health care companions provide a level of emotional, physical, and mental support that older adults and those with disabilities need to thrive at home.
Responsibilities range from dusting high shelves to trips to the pharmacy to playing cards.
Unlike live-in caregivers, companions don’t provide 24/7 support.
Instead, they visit your home on a regular schedule — weekly, a few times a week, or even a few hours every day — depending on your level of independence.
They also don’t provide any in-depth medical or physical care.
So, if you need medications administered or one-on-one assistance in the bathroom, a companion cannot meet that need.
Our compassionate team of home health care companions will offer any of the following:
You pride yourself on owning a well-kept home.
But it often becomes unsafe to complete your usual household chores without some assistance.
A companion can take over when you need help with some light housekeeping.
That doesn’t include raking leaves, mowing the lawn, or shoveling the driveway.
Our companions are heroic, but they can only do so much!
All our companions are licensed and insured drivers with access to a reliable vehicle.
It doesn’t matter what’s on your schedule, be it an appointment or a party.
Your companion can provide transportation almost anywhere.
You’ll arrive safely and promptly every time (with a bit of time to spare!).
Your companion can even help you with the little things while you’re out and about.
They’ll carry your bags, reach for products on shelves, and pay for services before you leave.
At-home companions aren’t private duty nurses.
They can’t dress wounds, administer IV medications, or provide ostomy care.
However, there’s plenty they can do!
They can offer medication reminders to ensure you take your pills at the right time every day.
Your companion can even open the pill bottles for you.
Our companions are naturally thoughtful and selfless people.
That’s why they’re always willing to run errands for you on days you’re homebound.
Sit back comfortably in your air-conditioned or heated home.
Your companion can also help you square away this month’s bills on time!
We know just how important exercise can be for your mental, physical, and emotional health.
Companion care can also expose you to a more active lifestyle.
Are you ready to get your heart thumping and release those feel-good endorphins?
It’s like a companion and a workout buddy, all tied into one.
The relationships our companions nurture are both meaningful and genuine.
And they value every moment you share.
During your time together, you might rediscover your passion for old hobbies.
Or you could develop new interests as you build a lifelong relationship with your companion.
This frequent socialization isn’t only fun.
It can also reduce feelings of loneliness and keep you sharp as a tack.
Trust us: your companion will look forward to it just as much as you do!
The Grand Strand Comfort Care team difference lies in the details.
You can trust our skilled and selfless professionals because:
Your family understands your unique mental and physical needs.
And if they could drop everything to care for you themselves, you know they would!
Hiring our caregivers can help you avoid falling behind on household chores, find new hobbies that capture your interest, and develop a meaningful relationship with another person.
There’s nothing more valuable than peace of mind.
Our companions didn’t choose this line of work for the pay alone.
Nor do they see the time you two share as “just work.”
Their passion for helping others led them to us — and right through your front door!
They take their roles seriously, strive to build genuine friendships, and will treat you with the utmost respect as you deserve.
Admitting you need assistance is a sign of bravery and honesty.
At Grand Strand Comfort Care, we understand first-hand the struggle of losing your independence and allowing others to lend a hand.
Our companions will never overstep their boundaries.
They’re there to help only when and if you need them.
No matter your needs, personality, or daily schedule, Grand Strand Comfort Care has a perfectly matched companion for you.
It’s time to take the first step and reclaim your independence!
