Are you a Dallas-Fort Worth home health care agency that provides sitter and companionship services for the elderly and seniors? Yes, it is part of our wide range of Texas State licensed home health care related services.
Referring to one aspect of our service as a sitter service has been a common reference for many, but we prefer not to use this terminology as it seems to undermine our goal of being a source of independence and not dependence to elderly and seniors. While we do “sit” with some clients, our caregivers are experienced to, whenever feasible or practical, engage their client in an effort to enhance their independence (versus just sit there).
We have some clients requiring minor or no assistance that seem to benefit greatly from just having a good companion. This companionship provides encouragement and support to stay active and engaged in things the client would not otherwise do if alone. We have a program dedicated to this type of service called Pivot Care. Care givers that qualify for our Pivot Care program are specially suited at working with clients that may be a little depressed, feeling unsure of themselves, or have some other barrier to greater independence. Pivot Care caregivers have a proven track record of helping others over come these and other barriers to independence.
Our home health caregivers that primarily provide companionship can get their client engaged in many independence enhancing activities such as attending a senior center, shopping, eating out, exercising, attending educational events/classes and other activities the client had enjoyed in the past. Our caregiver companion service for elderly and seniors only works because we are one of the best home health care agencies in DFW at getting a good match between an elderly person or senior citizen and a companion caregiver. We have even been a great traveling companion for clients.
