Calgary Elder Care’s number one concern is to ensure you or your loved one is safe and secure in your home. Our goal is to find you a caregiver who meets your expectations and matches well with your loved one’s personality. The companionship a caregiver can provide, can improve your loved one’s health and happiness.
Perhaps you just need company?
Active mental and social engagement is important in keeping loneliness and depression at bay, as well as making life more meaningful. Activities to keep minds sharp, having fun and staying connected to family, friends and community is vital.
With our caregivers, you or your loved one don’t have to miss out on activities you enjoy. Calgary Elder Care can provide safe transportation and enjoyable companions for you at favorite sporting events, arts and cultural programs, social and charity functions, religious services, and more. If Mom loves her monthly trip to the salon or spa and Dad lives for his social club, we’ll do our part in helping them keep enjoying those activities as long as possible.
If you or your loved one is home alone due to a health issue, physical limitation or a memory issue, our caregivers are there to provide companionship, assist with your needs and wants, and ensure your safety. Whether it is playing games, puzzles, crafts, reading books, the newspaper, sharing conversation, going for a walk, enjoying a meal together or helping move around the house, you will enjoy the friendly smiles, encouraging words and a gentle helping hand.
Calgary Elder Care also provides companions for hospitalized clients and those residing in care facilities.
Typical activities that clients enjoy with a companion may include:
- Shopping for food, clothes or other items
- Going to leisure activities
- Sharing over a cup of tea
- Company while doing hobbies or crafts
- Playing cards, chess, puzzles, etc.
- Going to a church service
- Visiting a community center
- Going to the bank
- Walking the dog
- Company and transport to doctor or appointments
And it’s nice to have someone to ask:
Along with offering companionship, it’s nice to know that your home care worker is able and willing to help you master the little difficulties of life, such as:
- Learning how to use a TV remote control or computer
- Learning how to text family and friends
This is all about you.
It is your choice how much and exactly what kind of companionship support you have, and as well as how often you want it. The above are only examples of what is available to you. Our Client Care Managers will work with you to put together a Care Plan specifically for you and your needs.
