Companion Care in Denver
A Compassionate Smile and an Open Heart
Being elderly can be extremely cold, isolating, lonely, and terrifying. Social isolation is an endemic problem among elderly people. As friends pass on, family get busy with their lives, and you become less able to get around or leave your house, it becomes much harder to maintain the friendships and human connections that make a full, rich, fulfilling life.
Sometimes, when you or your loved one are perfectly capable of caring for yourselves, a friend is what you need more than anything. That’s what we’re here for. Home Helpers Home Care offers Companion Care services to elderly people in Denver and the surrounding areas. We will match you or your loved one with a Companion with similar interests over which they can bond, and be there as someone to talk to, to listen to your problems and troubles, and care for them. Our Companions are trained and licensed to provide companionship to elderly people, and they genuinely care about building friendships with the elderly.

What Does a Companion Do for the Elderly?
Companion care is a separate service from caregiving. The latter involves basic routine care like hygiene, housekeeping, medication and health routines, safety and monitoring. Companion care is based more on emotional support and friendship.
Being withdrawn or cut off from people impacts quality of life and even leads to physical and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Companions are there so that you or your loved one are reminded that there are still people who look out for you and care for you. Like you have someone to spend time with and comfort you when you’re feeling sad or stressed.
Companions may organize activities like:
- Playing games and puzzles
- Running errands
- Going out to eat or doing things together
- Bonding with family and friends through video calls
