Hiring a professional caregiver as a travel companion

Home Attendant CareParticipating in social events is important to the emotional health and well-being of elders. While keeping seniors active and engaged with friends and family helps maintain important relationships sometimes it can become challenging for seniors to travel to family events across town, out of state or internationally.

At Home Attendant Care, we help Northwest Washington elders and their families preserve valuable connections between all generations. Our trained and fully-insured caregivers are available to provide transportation to and from events and take care of any personal care needs that arise along the way.

Escorted outings can be as long or short as needed, from an afternoon birthday party or BBQ to weekend vacations or even family or school reunions in another state…our team is prepared for whatever the needs may be.

Home Attendant Care caregivers have served as vacation companions so seniors are able to travel locally and internationally.  We have helped senior citizens fulfill “Bucket List” wishes and life-long dreams by traveling to places they never thought they would visit.

We’ve accompanied people to Mexico, Hawaii, Denmark, and many other places around the United States and the world! Our caregivers in Whatcom, Skagit, Island, San Juan and North Snohomish counties also take seniors on shopping trips, social visits and other fun outings around our region.

Hiring a travel companion can ease the stress of travel for seniors and their family members – travel companions/caregivers help with packing and planning, navigation of transportation hubs, dietary and personal care needs, and much more. Professional travel companions offer private, personal care while being respectful to the requests of clients – and they provide peace of mind for senior’s family members.

We take pride in what we do. Eldercare is an essential piece of society today, and we love helping seniors stay connected with those they love. Contact Home Attendant Care today to learn more about our travel companions and how hiring a professional caregiver helps people get out and about in Northwest Washington and beyond.

24-hour care at home – it’s a lifestyle choice

24-Hour Live In Care

When senior citizens need more help at home than can be provided by their loved ones, people often start considering assisted living facilities or nursing homes.  Those facilities can be a great choice for elders with complicated medical needs, but there is another option to consider.

24-hour care at home, provided by professional caregivers, can be an excellent choice for elders who want to continue living life on their own terms.

Personalized care delivered on a round-the-clock basis, helps seniors remain at home, in their surroundings where they are most comfortable and at ease.

There are many benefits to having 24-hour caregivers provide companionship and care to elders. They include:

  • Elderly couples are able to stay together – they can carry on with their lives as they’ve grown used to doing.
  • Family members have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in a familiar environment, while being monitored for health and safety.
  • Seniors can enjoy living life on their own schedule – like being able to get up and go to bed when they want and eat what they want when they want it.
  • Home care can be a less expensive option when compared to assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

At Home Attendant Care we understand that each new phase in life comes with its own gifts and challenges – we believe that support from others can make transition times easier and are happy to be a trusted resource for seniors and their loved ones.
