Home care does not mean that your loved one is stuck at home. Staying social and maintaining ties to the community are important for the health and happiness of your senior parent. Whenever possible or appropriate, our companionship activities include spending time outdoors. Many of these activities are based on your loved one’s favourite pastimes. They help your loved one stay actively engaged in life. In this way, our care companions help make the best of every moment for your loved one.
We Help Plan & Encourage Social Activities
Whether your loved one needs companion care every day or just for a few hours a week, we have the perfect companion to respect and care for your loved one. We provide many enjoyable outings for older or elderly adults including:
Taking walks and enjoying fresh air. Our companions can take your loved ones for a visit to the beach or Beacon Hill Park, a day at the lake and even adventures through the woods. Our caregivers make the most of the landscape that is in our own backyard.
We hear a lot of positive feedback from your loved ones after they go on an adventure of visiting consignment shops, flea markets, and thrift stores. Together with a trusted companion, your loved one can discover hidden treasures. Moreover, these shopping venues are low cost and price is always negotiable.
Whether it’s fine arts, natural history, or science, we can enrich your loved one’s life by taking a trip to the museum. We find exhibits online, and look for special events and deals. Plus, museums often provide a senior discount.
Your loved one can enjoy theatre, shows, performances and concerts. Oftentimes, local high schools will perform free recitals. Also, Victoria often offers free concerts and shows throughout the warm summer months.
By attending cultural shows and culturally themed events in the community, your loved one gets a taste of the cuisine, history, art, and way of life of different cultures. All while engaging with their local community.
Many seniors enjoy a weekend outing at a local farmer’s market. Not only is this a great way to get out of the house, but your loved one is also connecting with their community. We also hear a lot of great feedback on this outing because seniors enjoy sampling products and some even taking fresh produce home which our care givers can prep.
We always hear from family members after their loved one participates in the excitement of a favourite pastime or hobby. For instance, we take many elderly adults fishing, boating and to Butchart Gardens. We go above and beyond so that your loved one remembers and lives their most meaningful life.
We Transform Lives with Companion Care
Your loved one’s life will transform with companionship. Companionship provides security, warmth, a sense of self-worth and frequent confirmation that we are of value to others. Having a loving and dedicated friend is often a lifeline for anyone who no longer has the energy, motivation, or physical well-being to comfortably socialize outside the home.
Seniors aren’t the only lives that transform by this type of care. Family caregivers also find respite, relief, and peace of mind by hiring a loving, accepting and understanding care companion for their loved one.
And it’s why we guarantee it: Love your visit or it’s free.
