We require a minimum of one hour for a companion visit because even a short visit can make a difference in someone’s day. We understand that clients may need a little help occasionally, and we aim to offer as much flexibility to each family’s scheduling needs.

Whether hanging out and watching TV, running errands, assisting with daily tasks, or just chatting, this one-hour companion visit can offer much-needed support in a hectic world.

This shorter duration makes companion services more affordable and personalized to our client’s needs. The one-hour minimum also helps out family caregivers by giving them regular breaks to recharge and prevent feeling too overwhelmed or guilty.


Making the Most of an Hour

Spending quality time isn’t just about the length of time; it’s about the difference spending time together can make. Companions can engage in activities that boost your loved one’s emotional well-being during short visits, which makes a difference for them. Whether it’s doing a hobby together or looking through old photos, every visit can be a nice break for them.

It can be helpful to schedule visits around their daily routines, like meals, exercise, or watching their favorite TV show, which can help give structure and routine to their day, overall benefitting their mental health.


Tailored Services for Flexibility

We always prioritize flexibility – we tailor our services to meet the unique needs of individuals instead of forcing them into a strict schedule. Whether you need help for one hour, five hours, or even more, the decision is entirely up to you, and we’re here to make sure it works for you. 

A regular one-hour visit can make a world of difference for families whose older loved ones are facing social isolation by providing a sense of connection and continuity. 

Our focus is not just on the number of hours we spend with our clients but on how we can enhance their lives by providing reliable and flexible hands-off support that gives families peace of mind.
