If you need help around the house but are unable to leave your home, you may want to consider in-home companion care. These individuals provide assistance and emotional support for elderly or infirm people, and their services help to ease the burden on family members and caregivers. Companion caregivers can visit daily, weekly, or multiple times per week. They can also assist with household tasks and errands. These people are also available on an hourly basis, which allows you to schedule visits around your own lifestyle and maintain your independence.
