Active Companionship is a term we use to describe how our personal assistants actively engage with you to explore your interests. This is always done in a non-intrusive manner with respect for personal privacy. When you decide there is an endeavor that interests you, we are there to help make it happen.
How We Support This Process
You and our personal assistants have access to Broad Street Concierge, a service that can plan and coordinate activities. This includes everything from restaurant or event reservations, to getting tickets, to arranging for transportation. And as always, our personal assistants are there to accompany you. Contact Broad Street Home Care if you’d like to learn more – 847-728-0134.
How Does Broad Street Home Care Provide Active Companionship?
Companionship within Home Care is often limited to helping seniors manage daily routines such as getting out of the bed, preparing meals or performing light housekeeping duties. At Broad Street Home Care, we view it as something more. We view it as a path towards empowerment, that leads to an independent spirit. This is why we use the term Active Companionship. It is not merely about maintaining existence in a daily routine but in actively engaging in our lives. It is a state of mind. Not only can this physical and mental engagement have valuable health benefits but more importantly, it can lead to a better quality of life.
There are a number of areas where Broad Street, through Active Companionship, can encourage greater engagement in life outside of the traditional homecare companion services.
Hobbies and Interest – Is there an activity you do, or used to do, that you really enjoyed. Maybe it is art or music, maybe its animals or nature, maybe its chess or other mind games. They key is determining what type of activities really make you happy, what makes you feel alive.
Engagement with Family – One particular area of engagement we feel is important for everyone is social interaction, particularly with family. To that end, our personal assistants are trained to help you easily communicate with friends and family. We can assist you in communicating through email, or even setting up and managing a Social Media account. With today’s technology, there are many ways to stay touch.
Travel – It is said that youth is wasted on the young. When we are younger and have the dream to travel, we often find ourselves too busy. Unfortunately, seniors often find the prospect of traveling no longer an option. It doesn’t have to be that way. Broad Street Concierge can assist in planning and logistics, and a travel companion with home care assistance skills can support you along the way. With a senior travel companion absorbing the hassles of travel, seniors can focus on the quality of the experience and enjoy the journey, whether you are with family, at a wedding or graduation, with friends or on your own.
