Companion Care Services with ameriCARE in Pittsburgh

Our Reliable Companion CARE Services

At ameriCARE Pittsburgh, we recognize the important role companion care services can play in the lives of those who need support to stay independent. Seniors may lose friends and loved ones or live farther away from their families, leaving them alone a lot of the time. Those managing chronic illness or recovering from surgery may feel detached from others, feeling as though no one understands what they are going through. There’s nothing quite like a comforting hand and a shoulder to lean on during those times.

our tailored home companion CARE services include:

the dangers of ISOLATION

Numerous studies have shown that social support is a predicting factor for the emotional and physical well-being of all people. Isolation is a threat to psychological health, physical health, and, ultimately, survival. This is true for every human being, but unfortunately, today’s seniors are more prone to isolation and its health risks, which include:

  • Increased risk of premature death
  • 50% risk increase for dementia
  • 29% risk increase for heart disease
  • 32% risk increase for stroke

companion CARE in Pittsburgh to meet your daily needs

Companion care is a wonderful non-medical in-home care service for seniors who wish to remain independent but need help to complete day-to-day tasks. Seniors, those recovering from injury, and those managing chronic illness are prone to feeling alone and disconnected, especially when living independently and without reliable access to others. Lifestyle assistance can offer much-needed engagement, conversation, laughter, and companionship.

Our companion care program empowers our compassionate in-home caregivers to share their time, talents, and friendship with our clients. Whether playing a game of cards, watching a favorite movie, or sharing a meal, our trained caregivers provide friendship and facilitate mental and social well-being.

building a tailored care plan designed for YOU

Having a companion to enjoy day-to-day activities with is not only beneficial for living a fulfilled life — it can also help seniors and those with disabilities or an illness complete daily tasks effectively. We will build your companion care plan around a series of core services like:

Meal Preparation and In-home Care Services

Meal Preparation

Our caregivers often help clients prepare meals and shop for groceries, creating opportunities to connect and socialize over a good meal. Our caregivers can also monitor dietary restrictions to help clients maintain a healthy day-to-day lifestyle.

Recreation In-Home Care Services


Our caregivers provide much-needed emotional and social support for those who have a difficult time leaving the home or who may be far from friends and family. Lifestyle assistance is the perfect way to encourage social and mental well-being for those who need it most.

Transportation and In-home Care Services


Because it can be hard to run errands alone, our caregivers help our clients finish their to-do lists by giving them a ride to appointments, events, and even the grocery store. After all, errands are much more fun with a friend!

Medical Appointment Help and In-home Care Services

Medical Appointment Support

Our caregivers often accompany clients to their medical appointments to help them navigate any information or instructions provided by their doctor.

Combating loneliness and isolation is much easier in a well-kept home. Our caregivers assist with daily household chores to help bring our clients peace of mind and comfort.

Reading Aid and In-Home Care Services

Reading Aid

Reading a good book, opening and reading mail, organizing paperwork, and even mailing bills and letters can be difficult for those with vision problems. Our caregivers help clients with all their reading needs, from recreational to administrative.

Exercise and Companion and In-Home Care Services


Physical activity is a great way to connect with others, enjoy the outdoors, and improve mental health. Whether it’s a walk up and down the driveway or assistance with physical therapy exercises, our caregivers can help your loved one stay active in their day-to-day lives.

Pet Care and In-Home Care Services

Pet Care

Our caregivers can provide clients and their beloved pets with a helping hand. We’ll be there for dog walking, feeding schedules, transportation and assistance with vet appointments, and pet hygiene to keep both owner and pet happy and healthy.
