Companions are sometimes referred to as “Sitters”. They can assist individuals in their homes with very basic tasks. They cannot however provide any hands-on care or touch an individual under any circumstances.
The fact that they cannot touch an individual limits the scenarios where their services are beneficial. They have been likened to hiring a babysitter whom you instruct not to touch your child. It is because of these shortcomings that we work exclusively with HHA’s and CNA’s who have the training to assist with companion type care and more.
