Green Bay, Wis. – Unity, Northeast Wisconsin’s nonprofit leader in hospice care, supportive palliative care and grief support, announces an expansion of services to nonmedical home care, sometimes referred to as personal care, senior care or companion care.

Unity’s Care Companions program offers a wide menu of services designed to help any adult live independently and with dignity in their own home. Support includes assistance with bathing tasks, dressing, grooming, light housekeeping, companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders, cognitive support, home safety assessments with recommendations, and more. Unlike home health services, a physician’s order is not required and there are no health requirements for eligibility.

Unity will offer Care Companions beginning August 9th to residents of Brown, Southern Oconto, Northeast Outagamie and Southeast Shawano Counties – with plans to expand its service territory in the future. The program is available to anyone in the community, including Unity’s existing hospice and palliative patients.
