Our Story

About Us

At Golden Age Companions, we don’t just provide in-home care, we provide fast, reliable, hands-on care with a guaranteed caregiver you’ll love.

We’re dedicated to providing personable, hands-on, and integrated caring services that aim to help people maintain safe and comfortable life standards within the familiar settings of the home. The company is the brainchild of Scott McKenzie, who became passionate about the home care industry after witnessing it’s value first hand, caring for his grandmother and appreciating the value of quality care received within the domestic environment. Sadly, Scott’s beloved grandmother was later transferred to a nursing home beyond his control where she received substandard care, passing away shortly thereafter. Our founder’s firsthand experience was a catalyst for his commitment to helping elderly people enjoy high quality care within their own homes for as long as possible.

We treat each client and caregiver match as if they were our own family members, making sure we’d feel just as confident in pairing that caregiver with our own loved ones.

Golden Age Companions has a strong faith in producing leaders and serving it’s employees, patients, and customers with integrity and honesty. As a healthcare provider, we are committed to not only provide home care, but care of the highest caliber.
