Companion Caregiving vs. Personal Caregiving

Companion care offers a wide variety of benefits. As the name implies, the best benefit is companionship. It’s more important than you might think. Humans are social creatures, and seniors tend to be isolated and lonely, which can impact their mental health.

Benefits of Companion Care

In one study, Lijun Liu, Zhenggang Gou, and Junnan Zuo concluded that:

“Social support partially mediates loneliness and depression (2).”

Minimizing or preventing loneliness and depression are some of the best benefits of companion care, but they aren’t the only ones. Other benefits of companion care include:

    • Seniors can stay in their homes longer and age in place without needing to go to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
    • The senior’s loved ones know they’re being taken care of when they can’t be there.
    • Seniors no longer need to worry about some tasks that have become too difficult to keep up with.
    • It’s easier for seniors to travel to appointments and run other errands.
    • Family members no longer have the stress of handling these duties themselves all the time.
    • Seniors are better able to keep their routines.

How Home Companion Care Works

Home care companion services allow people to stay in their homes longer by handling light housekeeping tasks, running errands, providing transportation, and offering companionship. The companion typically comes to the home on a set schedule, whether that’s a few hours a week or every day.

Does Medicare Cover Companion Care?

No, Medicare does not cover companion care if it is the only care you need (1). Medicare only covers home health care if:

  • You are homebound, AND
  • You’re getting services under a care plan created and reviewed regularly by a doctor, AND
  • You need intermittent skilled nursing care (other than drawing blood), speech-language pathology, physical therapy, or continued occupational therapy services.

However, some Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans may cover in-home care services. You should review the details of your supplemental insurance to see whether companion care is included.

Does Your Loved One Need Companion Care Services?

Is your loved one experiencing reduced mobility or cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s or dementia? Do they seem to be lonely or struggle to keep up with things like housekeeping? Are you worried about them being alone all day long? Are you unable to spend as much time with your loved one as you would like?

There are many reasons your loved one may need companion care. Whatever the reason, companion care is often the first step toward providing assistance to your loved one while they get to stay at home and avoid the disruption of moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
