Adult Companion Services are non-medical social support services for people with disabilities or older adults who need supervision, care or assistance.
When a person is on a disability waiver or the Alternative Care (AC) program and over the age of 18, companion services could include:
* Light housekeeping tasks
* Meal preparation
Learn more about this service when paid for under the waivers in the Community-Based Services Manual - http://www.dhs.state.mn.us/id_002442
Companionship is available to older adults who would benefit from a regular volunteer visitor. Volunteers can visit for up to two hours each week.
If more than two hours per week of service is needed, the Care Partner staffed service may be able to assist.
