Home Health or Companion Care?

Which is the right choice for your needs?

There is a significant difference in the type of care that is provided through Home Health care versus Companion Care. Both services offer compassionate care and support but with one major difference. Home Health Care is a medical and therapeutic intervention that is regulated through Medicare and overseen by a physician. Whereas, Companion Care is a non-medical service that is provided by trained caregivers.

What are Companion Services?

With complete flexibility, no contracts, and fully customized care, we are available 24/7 to arrange for a free in-home assessment, as well as professional oversight and care management for northern California families. Payments for services are generally paid privately or with long term care insurance. We offer unique benefits and provide peace of mind for your loved ones. Some of these services include:

Personal Care

Caregivers help clients with activities of daily living (ADL) including: getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, toileting, dressing, medication reminders, appointment scheduling, answering the phone and door, handling mail, reading, companionship and more.

Meal Preparation

Caregivers prepare nutritionally sound meals and help with grocery shopping as necessary.

Light Housekeeping

Light housekeeping is meant to keep the home orderly through changing linens, making beds, dusting, vacuuming, laundry, watering plants, disposal of garbage and more.


Caregivers provide one-on-one support, including assistance to medical and other personal appointments.

Respite Care

This service gives family caregivers an opportunity to spend time away from their loved one(s) with the confidence that a trained professional is administering care in their absence.


Caregivers transport clients to doctors, hair appointments, grocery shopping, and other miscellaneous errands.

Stand By and Assist

If our clients have problems walking or just need a little assistance, our caregivers are there to help out. We will stand by clients and assist them around the house or on their errands.
