According to Stanford Center on Longevity’s 2013 report titled Liveable Community Indicators for Sustainable Aging in Place, 2 in 5 seniors need assistance just to get through the day. It’s not always easy for seniors to ask for help, especially after a lifetime of taking care of others, but providing your aging loved one with the care they need can help them age in place and live a happier and more independent life.
We believe that our mature companions are the best people to provide care and assistance to seniors; as they offer the opportunity for clients to share common experiences and foster genuine relationships with companions who are close in proximity to their age.
Our companions come from a variety of backgrounds and professions and include retired nurses, business people, social workers, teachers, personal support workers, homemakers and paramedics. While their backgrounds may vary, all of our mature companions share the desire and passion to assist seniors in living happier more independent lives in the comfort of their home, retirement home, assisted living facility or nursing home.
When you hire a Seniors for Seniors companion you get:
I have always been so impressed by the passion and commitment of our employees. From the companions that I work with everyday in Simcoe-Muskoka, to those who looked after my Aunt in Toronto, each and every one has provided outstanding care to their clients.
