Companionship Care Services

Nurse Next Door understands you may need help with certain activities and a friend along the way. We recognize that feeling lonely is one of the leading causes of depression in seniors and our goal is to reverse the effects of isolation with senior companionship.

Your health and happiness is our top priority, which is why your companion care will be compassionately designed to provide you with a comfortable and inspiring environment while you stay in your own home.

For many people, companionship can spark their motivation to participate in everyday activities. Cooking and eating are more enticing as a group activity and exercising with friends and peers makes the effort much more fun.

It’s our mission to let you lead your life normally while having the confidence that you can still do and accomplish everything you want to with an experienced senior companion every step of the way.

Staying Active

Our services include travel companions for seniors if you need to go shopping or someone to drive you to your daily appointments. Have some light gardening or hobbies and crafts you love to do? Your companion caregiver will be with you to chat and engage in daily activities. One of the most cited activities to prevent depression and anxiety in seniors is physical exercise.

At Home

We know it can be challenging to stay busy and active, especially if you’re retired and living alone. We want to be sure you feel energized to keep your home tidy, cook good meals, and engage in interesting events. Your companion will help keep you engaged as much as possible. Even simple tasks like folding your laundry or doing dishes are easier and more enjoyable when done with a companion.

Hobbies and Interests

Nurse Next Door knows that communication and socialization with friends and family is also important in keeping your spirits up. Time spent in solitude can increase the risk of depression and anxiety but getting involved with the community, organizing events and reading books with your companion can create a positive and lasting sense of well-being.
