Accompaniment services

What are accompaniment services?

Not only does Northeast Professional Caregivers provide high-quality, in-home personal care, homemaking services, and activities of daily living (ADL) support to our clients, we also empower our clients further by providing companionship and accompaniment outside of your home, so you can access the ongoing care and services you need in your community and continue to more fully participate in life.

If you or a loved one need support in travelling to medical appointments, religious services, or other community activities, or need assistance with grocery shopping, filling prescriptions, and other errands, or would simply enjoy some companionship and conversation, our courteous and compassionate caregivers can arrange appointments, escort or accompany you on outings, and keep you more socially active in your community.

Our staff works with you and your family to determine the kinds of non-medical services you most need and desire in order to maintain your independence, social connections, and remain an active participant in life outside of your home.

Your caregiver can serve as an accompaniment or companion as little or often as needed, and caregivers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Examples of accompaniment and companion services:

  • Arrange appointments with reminders, including doctor’s visits
  • Escort you to medical appointments, religious services
  • Escort you to other desired locations and activities in your community
  • Accompany you in completing errands
  • Complete personal shopping/errands based on your prepared lists
  • Drop off or pick-up laundry or dry cleaning
  • Assist with entertainment and enjoyment of hobbies (reading, crafts, games, movies)
  • Companionship and conversation

Benefits of accompaniment and companion services:

  • Maintain life routines and independence
  • Bring more variety and enjoyment to life
  • Maintain social ties and connections in your community
  • Ensure your medical appointments are being scheduled and attended 
  • Be less isolated at home by getting out into your community
  • Continue to participate in the entertainment and hobbies you most enjoy, both at-home and outside of home

Accompaniment can lead to better healthcare outcomes, reduce preventable hospitalizations, and decrease overall medical costs.
