Health and Safety
At ABT, our Companion Services are direct services provided to individuals aged 18 and older who live in private homes. These services are for the limited purposes of providing supervision or assistance that is designed to ensure the individual’s health, safety, and welfare or to perform activities of daily living for the individual. These services may be provided in home and community settings, including the individual’s competitive employment workplace, and are intended to assist the individual to participate more meaningfully in these settings.
Companions may supervise, assist or even perform activities for an individual that include but are not limited to:
- household care
- meal preparation and planning
