Companion Care Services


Avodah Home Care is built on the foundations of servant leadership. The word “Avodah” means work, worship, and service. These are all the qualities and characteristics that exist within our caregivers. They strive to provide consistent care that ensures improvement for your loved one’s quality of life. Every action we take is to serve your family and The Most High God, Yahawah. Our professional caregivers are here to provide the people you hold most dear with the love and support they need to keep on living, not just existing. We understand that you don’t want your loved ones to be stuck at home alone while you take care of the other responsibilities you have in your life, but these other obligations are also priorities you can’t simply ignore. Allow us to step in and be the helping hand you need to make sure your loved ones are well taken care of while also continuing to live your life as well.

Avodah Home Care Provides Specialized Support

As we age, having a trusted companion can make all the difference in remaining independent, active and fulfilled at home. Avodah Home Care’s companion care provides more than just physical help – it focuses on nurturing the whole person through social engagement and compassionate support. Our experienced caregivers become valued friends, ensuring you live life to the fullest.

What is Companion Care?

Companion care involves a professional, trained caregiver assisting you or your loved one at home with:

  • Daily tasks like cooking, errands, laundry
  • Medication reminders and health monitoring
  • Transportation to appointments and outings
  • Physical assistance with mobility and personal care

But unlike standard home care that addresses physical needs, companion care also emphasizes:

  • Social interaction and mental stimulation
  • Emotional support and caring companionship
  • Improving quality of life and supporting independence

The right companion becomes a trusted partner focused on your happiness and comfort daily.

Avodah Home Care offers an exceptional combination of home care and community-based social services. Our goal is to help your loved ones to continue to live safely and confidently in a familiar place they call home.
