Concierge Care

Elderly Companion Services in Madison MS & Hattiesburg MS

(offered only from our Madison office at this time)

We understand that senior adults desire to remain as independent as possible while maintaining wellness and safety.  Our Concierge Companions are here to come along side you to help, not take over.

What is Concierge Care?

This service is for individuals who don’t require 24/7 supervision or care, but need a kind, dependable helping hand with certain activities.  This may include transportation to a doctor’s appointment, the beauty salon, or other appointments; a shopping trip to pick out a new outfit; or weekly errands such as grocery shopping, picking up the dry cleaning, or going to the pharmacy

Your Concierge Companion may also help with appointment setting, coordinating home maintenance, letter writing, and preparing for/attending special events. 

Who qualifies for Concierge Care?

There are not strict criteria for receiving this level of service; however, for a client to be transported, he/she must ambulate independently.  If personal care is needed (assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, etc.), you would want to talk with us about our traditional caregiver services.

Are there minimum utilization requirements?

There is only a 2-hour minimum for a Concierge Care visit.  Although we recommend setting up a recurring schedule, this is not required.

“We’ve got things like appointments and maintenance covered, but I’d love to have someone with whom mom could relate to and enjoy some extra socialization.”

Socialization is crucial for elderly individuals for several reasons:

  1. Mental and Emotional Well-being: Social interaction helps prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation, which are common among the elderly. It provides emotional support, reduces stress, and promotes a sense of belonging and purpose.
  2. Cognitive Health: Engaging in conversations, activities, and social gatherings stimulates the brain and helps maintain cognitive function. It can potentially lower the risk of cognitive decline and conditions like dementia.
  3. Physical Health: Socializing often involves physical activities such as walking, dancing, or participating in group exercises. These activities promote physical fitness, mobility, and overall well-being.
  4. Sense of Identity and Self-worth: Socializing allows elderly individuals to share their experiences, wisdom, and skills with others. It reinforces their sense of identity and self-worth by validating their contributions to society.
  5. Mood Improvement: Interacting with others can elevate mood and reduce symptoms of depression. It provides opportunities for laughter, enjoyment, and a positive outlook on life.
  6. Longevity: Research suggests that seniors who maintain strong social connections tend to live longer than those who are isolated. Social support networks contribute to better health outcomes and resilience in the face of health challenges.
  7. Continued Learning and Engagement: Socialization encourages learning new things, staying updated with current events, and participating in cultural or recreational activities. This lifelong learning aspect enriches their lives and keeps them mentally stimulated.
  8. Quality of Life: Overall, regular socialization enhances the quality of life for elderly individuals by promoting happiness, satisfaction, and a sense of fulfillment in their later years.
