The goal of our Companion Care program is to provide in-home support based on each patient’s needs in order to help maintain independence at home for as long as possible. Companion Care is available in Kern and Fresno Counties.
Some patients may only require a few hours of care per day and for others it may include 24-hour care. Our Companion Care program can assist with most anything that does not require an LVN or RN, such as bed/wheelchair transfers, dressing & personal bathing, transportation to doctors’ appointments, meal preparation, light housecleaning and more. Our fully licensed and trained staff tailor their support to meet your individual needs.
Companion Care services are available to clients of all ages who are recovering from hospitalization or illness, those who have chronic medical conditions, or who are frail, elderly, disabled, or simply require additional assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) in order to safely remain at home.
Around the Clock Care’s Companions are state certified, fully trained, licensed and receive background clearance, which includes finger printing and drug testing. Our staff care passionately about helping you remain at home and as independent as possible. We select the finest professionals who have a heart for our clients.
