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.
