Senior Care Services in Novi & Ann Arbor MI
In-Home Care Services for Senior Citizens in SE Michigan
Aging adults, depending on their health and living situations, have a variety of needs. One need that is important for individuals of advanced age, whether they are living alone, in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or already receiving medical home care services, is companionship.
In-home companion care services can help older adults with in-home care including many necessary activities, such as serving meals and providing medication reminders. One of the most crucial services they provide is, simply, companionship.
Home care companions go beyond caregiving and provide a social connection that many older adults lack, sharing with them the types of simple social and community activities that enrich all our daily lives.
Companion Care Activities for Seniors
At CareOne, we believe that all individuals can benefit from simple, stimulating, and fun activities, either physical or mental. Activities that are structured to improve the individual's overall functioning, such as memory games or physical movement exercises, are effective tools for helping to improve and maintain functions such as memory, mood, and mobility.
Caregivers are trained and ready to incorporate strategies into our companionship care services when they think their clients will benefit and enjoy these enhanced daily activities.
Companionship is vital to senior citizens who may feel isolated and alone. Affordable companionship home care services can be a lifesaver to many elderly adults who look forward to their caregiver visits and count on their companions to provide them with compassion, as well as good company.
Compassionate Senior Companion Care Services
Companion care sessions are also a chance for the caregiver to check in on the senior's overall well-being. Companion care is an important adjunct to physical home care services, like personal care grooming or changing bed linens, since it addresses the whole person, body, and spirit.
Many seniors are less verbal in their elder years, so in addition to conversational cues, an attentive companion caregiver may pick up on changes in mood, extra fatigue, or other signs the client may need additional help or special attention.
No matter what the home or health situation may be, seniors can benefit from the many services provided by a companion caregiver.

Dementia and Alzheimer's In-Home Care Services
CareOne specializes in providing professional home care services for Alzheimer's patients and their families. We are uniquely qualified and provide special training to not only better understand the disease, but to also learn skills to best manage the care of memory-affected clients.
We work with all stages of Alzheimers with the goal to allow your loved ones to stay in their own homes as long as possible rather than in a long-term care facility. In addition, our certified practitioner will oversee the care team, assist in managing the customized home care plan including respite care, and make sure the best practices are implemented.
What is Dementia?
Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily activity. Memory loss is one example. Alzheimer's is the most common type and causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior, and accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases.
More than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer's disease today, and many are cared for by a family member in the home. Unfortunately, the disease can often present some unique physical and emotional challenges. If your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or you are experiencing challenges with providing care, we are here to help.
