Let’s start with the thought that ‘Aging is just another way of Living’. As life progresses to another level you start to feel everything around you in a different way. You start to see different aspects of every situation. Along with this your body changes its way of processing.
Companion care is a form of long-term care, focused on providing the elderly with emotional and physical support with everyday activities. It is useful for older adults who want to age in the comfort and safety of home, while remaining independent and socially active.
The innate difficulties of old age often effect the emotional state of the person. They may be unable to do their daily tasks as their health conditions doesn’t support them to do so. This is the situation where a companionship becomes important. Companionship does not only help them to do their daily tasks but also provide them emotional support.

A companion may also do the tasks like preparing meals and light housekeeping duties. This type of care giving is designed to improve the life quality of elderly who are dependent on others.
