Lawrenceville Companion Services
iCherish Home Care provides companion services for older adults and people in need throughout Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County. Companion care is a kind of home care service that is non-medical, supplying emotional support and socialization. These services do not involve any tasks that require caregivers to touch the client. Rather than bathing and dressing, companion care involves shopping trips, doctor visits, housework assistance, and meal preparation, for example. It is lovely when family and friends provide social engagement to their loved ones. Still, it is not always an option for a variety of reasons. Whether family and friends are in the mix or not, companion care is a way to enrich someone's life by being there and much-needed socialization.
Meal Preparation and Nutrition Guidance
When older people and those with disabilities live alone, they rarely eat a balanced diet. It is easy for them not to want to cook for one, forget to eat, rely on unhealthy junk food, or miss meals for many reasons. Meal preparation is where iCherish caregivers can help. As part of the companion services we offer in Lawrenceville, we prepare delicious meals to help our clients stay nourished. Eating right promotes good health and consistent energy levels.
Medication Compliance Reminders
One of the most confusing daily tasks for our clients is managing their medications. Multiple prescriptions to take at different times do not make it easy for most.
