-- Is called just 'companion' a person who takes care of another in a hospital? Or 'hospital companion'? Or what other name?


-- And which other verb (aside 'take care' and 'help') can I use to describe what this person does?


Thanks in advance!

Normally, someone who takes care of a person who is ill is called a nurse or caregiver.


Companion is reserved to talk about people who are sharing an experience on equal terms, like a husband to a wife or your best friend to you.
