ENID — Grace Care Companion Services
There are people who may not require home health care but need help with every day tasks or would just like some companionship. For those people there is Grace Care Companion Services.
Housed in Autry Technology Center’s Center for Business Development, Grace Care has been in business for two years.
“We are strictly what you would call a non-home health business,” said Bob Osborn, president/general manager. “Our job is to help people stay healthy.”
Osborn said some people just need assistance with tasks such as general house cleaning, cooking, running errands or paying bills.
“We do from a few hours of service to 24 hours a day,” said Osborn.
Osborn said many clients are senior citizens, but they can help anyone, such as an expectant mother who has been ordered to refrain from heavier household chores or someone who has just had knee replacement surgery.
Currently Grace Care cannot offer any type of health services but Osborn said they soon will have a home health license.
Osborn said Grace Care can offer help with household tasks and companionship to anyone in Enid or the surrounding area.
“We are trying to reach out anywhere we can to provide services,” said Osborn.
Aside from help with tasks, the companionship services can be helpful to people at home or people who are staying in the hospital. Osborn said not only are the clients grateful for the companionship services but family members who may live too far away to visit also are grateful.
Grace Care Companion Services currently has 10 employees, and many long-term care insurance plans cover their services, Osborn said.
