"Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it."

My grandma was 91 when she passed away and I spent over 7 years with her up until her last days. My experience with hiring caregivers on behalf of my Grandma in the past were unsatisfactory, a hassle, and challenging. I wanted to make the experience a much better one for all families in need of in home care services. I found that there was no service out there that took into account the intricate needs seniors had as well as their family members who needed them taken care of at home- so I founded Golden Age Companions! With a caregiver that is committed to offering superior personalized care; your loved one will receive the highest possible personal attention in their own home with a caregiver that is dedicated to giving exceptional customized care – I promise it!
