In-Home Companionship for Seniors

The social fulfillment of companionship plays a big role in a good quality of life. Unfortunately, elderly adults that live alone or far away from friends and family are at risk of isolation. This can lead to reduced energy and declining health.

Westchester Family Care offers companionship services to seniors seeking compassionate and personal interactions. Our paid companions for the elderly can accompany your loved ones to local events, play card and board games with them, share favorite stories, and other engaging activities.


Keep Loved Ones Active with Senior Companion Care

Home care is a lot more than just medication reminders and transportation — friendship and companionship are just as important in promoting a positive well-being. Depending on your loved one’s needs, we can provide companion care in addition to other home care services or just companionship for those in need of good company.

Finding time to engage with aging parents or loved ones can be difficult due to travel or time constraints. Our experienced coordinators provide selective caregiver matching to pair your loved one with a care professional that has similar interests and complementary traits.

As sitters for the elderly, our caring New York State Certified Home Health Aides (HHA) can assist with:


Companionship, to local events, social outings, and activities.


Arts and crafts as well as other hands-on activities.


Cards and board games.


Music therapy to help with stress reduction and cognitive skills.


Reading and story sharing.

In-Home Companion Care FAQ

What companion care services are provided?

  • Companionship is just part of what we provide at Westchester Family Care. All of our caregivers are certified home health aides and are supervised by RNs. Our compassionate staff can assist with personal care needs, but everyone’s needs are different.
