Your Career as a Companion

A Note about COVID-19

Now, more than ever, it’s clear how essential companions really are. The people we serve rely on our companions, not just for companionship during a time of isolation, but also for assistance with their basic needs. Without dedicated companions, many seniors and adults with disabilities would be left with little support. You can make all the difference.

When you become a companion, no day will ever be exactly the same as the last. No matter what type of support you provide, you will always have a wide variety of duties and experiences.

And that’s important to us.

Companions are the heart of our organization. We know our company couldn’t exist without you, which is why it’s so important to us to keep your passion strong and to ensure your needs are met.

Read more below about the unique positions we offer, along with the ongoing support we provide to every Right at Home companion.

We believe that all kinds of people make great companions. It doesn’t matter if you have a little experience or a lot: You might already have the skills it takes to benefit a senior or adult with disabilities. A career in companionship might be right for you if:

You’re new to the workforce and want to build
a successful career in one-on-one senior assistance…

You have experience assisting 
a friend or loved one…

Types of Companionship

We’re proud to be able to offer elderly people and adults with disabilities a wide variety of service plans. Though some of our clients will need more services, including hygiene assistance, others are simply looking for help with their everyday routines or assistance in recuperating from a recent injury. This means that no matter your level of assistance you have provided in the past, chances are we have a position for you.
