Companion Care

Provided by a licensed Home Health Agency

Moon River Senior Care and Transportation caregivers are carefully recruited, screened and trained. We believe that it is a privilege to enter your home and that you should be comfortable with the caregiver. In advance of the first assignment, each client is provided with an introduction to the caregiver. After the first visit, we seek the client’s feedback as to his/her satisfaction. If the client is not satisfied, another caregiver will be assigned.

Our agency is committed to helping clients maintain the highest level of independence. We believe that senior care services are personal and should be tailored to match each client’s needs, with consideration to interests and preferences.

Caregivers can support clients in enjoying a healthy lifestyle that may include daily walks and other ventures. The client can take the lead initiating activities, or our caregiver can take an active role in planning for an enjoyable day. Companions are able to assist with:
