Companion/Housekeeping

Gloria has lived in the same home for more than 50 years. She and her husband bought it as newlyweds. The couple raised three children in the house. But when Gloria's husband suddenly passed away, her family became concerned about her well being. No one wanted to see Gloria live anywhere else. Ava, their youngest daughter, was worried enough about her mother's safety and well being that she discussed the situation with her siblings. The children decided to contact Right at Home.

Beth, a Right at Home caregiver, visits with Gloria several days a week to make sure she is safe and content. Gloria loves talking to Beth about her seven grandchildren. Beth often does light housekeeping as she listens. And she frequently fixes Gloria's lunches before sitting down with her to play cards and puzzles. Whenever Gloria wants to visit with friends or shop, Beth is always there to provide a car ride and carry Gloria's groceries.

Right at Home provides numerous companionship/housekeeping and wellness services to Gloria, including:

  • Safety supervision
  • Socialisation
  • Transportation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Cooking
  • Running errands
  • Medication reminders

Our mom received the highest quality care. We knew she was safe and happy when her companion and her PSW were there. Staff genuinely cared about our mom's welfare and interacted with her so well that she was always cheerful and laughing during their visits. Staff were caring and always communicating with the family. On our mom's birthday, her companion made her day extra special for her. She helped mom pick out a lovely sweater and earrings. She spent lunch time with our mom and they ate outside on the patio and enjoyed sunshine and the fresh air. Later on friends dropped by to visit mom and her companion made them all tea. It was a happy and very special day for mom thanks to the thoughtful details added into her day by her Right at Home companion. Wonderful staff at all levels who made mom feel very comfortable and gave us (her children) some much needed peace of mind!
