Right at Home - Colorado Springs
In Home Care and Assistance

We provide the right care to seniors and it all starts with the right in-home care services that fall into several categories of in-home care for seniors, including services for those with special care situations caused by numerous medical conditions.

Home Care and Senior Care Services For Wherever You Call Home

Whether your loved one needs care in their home, a nearby assisted or independent living community or elsewhere, our custom homecare services are provided in many settings.

Companionship Care and Homemaking

Help You Need, Right at Home

Maybe you’ve noticed Mom and Dad’s house starting to decline: counters are dirty, shelves undusted. Or perhaps your sister’s health is waning; she’s growing older and forgets to take her medications. Whatever the signs, you’re beginning to wonder if your loved one needs help around the house. Companionship care and homemaking offer just that: nonclinical assistance for those who need it, without leaving the comfort of home.

What Is Companionship Care and Homemaking?

From doing the laundry and taking out the garbage to reading out loud or playing cards, professionals in companionship care and homemaking serve as another body within the home. They’re available to help remind patients when to take their medications, keep up around the house and even drive someone to a hair appointment. Both services differ slightly in how they work.

Companionship Care

The purpose of companionship care is to offer company and friendship. Companions may help with certain household chores, such as laying out towels before a shower, but their primary purpose is to spend time with the patient. Grown children may want to hire companions to keep an eye on their aging parents, for example. Some of the services offered by companionship care include:

•    Transportation
•    Reading a book aloud
•    Playing games
•    Accompanying the patient for a walk outside
•    Letter writing
•    Monitoring the home

Homemaking

Think of homemaking as an addition to companionship care. With a homemaker, patients will receive all the benefits of a companion—such as transportation—but with added bonuses. Homemaking extends to include tasks such as cooking, cleaning and even grocery shopping. Some of the services offered by homemaking include:
•    Laundry
•    Cooking
•    Taking out the garbage
•    Light housekeeping
•    Organization
•    Respite care

Cheaper Than Home Health Aides

Companionship care and homemaking do not include personal, hands-on care. For example, companions cannot help patients bathe or take their medications. Instead, they can prepare the bath and remind patients to take their medications. Most states require additional licensing for personal, hands-on care.
Therefore, hiring companions or homemakers will cost less than hiring a home health aide, who undergoes additional training and needs a state license to provide hands-on care. The difference in cost can run $4-5 less per hour.

Benefits of Companionship Care and Homemaking

From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companionship care and homemaking have many benefits for patients. If you suspect your loved one isn’t eating well, for example, having a homemaker available to cook nutritious meals can turn around your family member’s health.

Here are just a few of the benefits these services offer:

•    Mental (cognitive) stimulation
•    Increased mobility due to transportation services
•    Socialization
•    Improvement in health, both physical and mental
•    Safety supervision

Testimonials:

I used Right at Home for several months to assist with the care of my grandmother. The service providers that worked for us were very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. The administrative staff is very proactive and were readily available to the point that if the provider was going to be late, the administrative staff came out and sat with my grandmother until the provide arrived. This service is excellent if you need good reliable and dependable care for a loved one.

Right at Home was able to provide dignity, caring and thoughtfulness through the end of my mother's life. The dependable caregiver was friendly, compassionate and respectful with our entire family! I have recommended Right at Home to several friends and will continue to do so with others as the need arises.
Jodi
************************************************
Personal health caregivers are often the only people with whom we may come in contact with extended period of time. Often our ailment or afflictions keep us isolated from friends and family we might otherwise see more often. And so in a way, it magnifies the effect these people and agencies they represent; have upon our well being; the very way we feel while they are here to assis us. Right at home workers are both highly professional and caring. I feel lucky to have them as part of my personal care team.
Richard
