Make a positive difference in the lives of seniors with non-medical elder care

Companion care services to assist with activities of daily living

Non-medical services, also known as companion or supportive care, allow a person to “age in place” in the comfort and safety of their home as long as medically possible. Supportive care services provide TLC, companionship and assist seniors with the activities of daily living.

The core services of an elder care business include:

  • Home support
    (includes cleaning, dusting, laundry and other housekeeping duties)
  • Homemaking and meal preparation
  • Companionship and caregiver relief
  • Transportation
    (includes shopping, errands and medical appointments)
  • Personal care assistance
    (includes helping with getting in and out of bed, dressing and grooming)

Since these services are non-medical, there is no need for nursing degrees, certifications or prior experience. Supportive care services encourage a safe, nurturing, independent lifestyle and provide both the senior and their family members with security, assurance, continuous care and support.

The Elder Care Business Tool Kit covers all the information in the fine points essential to running a business that provides peace-of-mind and respite to seniors, caregivers and families.
