Posted by Origin Active Lifestyle Communities on February 22, 2024 | 3 minute read

As our loved one’s age, their needs evolve, often leading to a crucial decision about their care and well-being. In-home wellness companion services have emerged as a vital solution, offering a blend of support, companionship, and healthcare that enhances the quality of life for seniors.



At Origin at Home, with locations in Calgary, AB, and Nanaimo, BC, we understand the importance of these services and their impact on the lives of seniors and their families.

Comprehensive Support in Familiar Surroundings

One of the foremost benefits of in-home wellness companions is the comprehensive care they provide in the comfort of one’s own home. This approach ensures that seniors receive personalized attention, tailored to their unique needs and preferences. It's not just about medical care; Origin at Home companions focus on nurturing the whole person - body, mind, and spirit where you feel most comfortable – your home.


Combatting Loneliness and Isolation

A significant challenge faced by seniors is the risk of social isolation and loneliness, which can have profound effects on both mental and physical health. A study published in the National Institutes of Health shows that social isolation can lead to increased risks of conditions like heart disease and depression. The Mental Health Commission of Canada states that 12% of those 65 years and older report feeling isolated, and 22% of older adults have screened positive for depression. In-home wellness companions provide much-needed social interaction and emotional support, helping to alleviate these risks and promote a sense of belonging and community.


Promoting Independence and Confidence

Maintaining independence is a key concern for many seniors. In-home wellness companions enable seniors to live independently for longer, offering support with daily activities while allowing them to stay in control of their lives. This sense of autonomy is crucial for their self-esteem and overall well-being. View our Origin at Home services here.

Whether it’s assistance with tasks around the home, mobility exercises, or cognitive stimulation activities, our wellness companions are trained to provide the necessary support.


A Trusted and Safe Option

Safety is a paramount concern when it comes to senior care. In-home wellness services provide a safe and trusted option, especially during times when external factors, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, pose additional risks for seniors. In-home care minimizes exposure to such risks while ensuring that the highest standards of health and safety are maintained.



In conclusion, in-home wellness companion services offer an invaluable solution for seniors, blending care, companionship, and comfort. At Origin at Home, we are dedicated to providing these essential services, ensuring that our seniors lead fulfilling and joyful lives. By choosing in-home wellness companions, families can rest assured that their loved ones are receiving the best possible care in the safety and familiarity of their own home.
