Mission:
We are a cooperative of well-trained home companions that walk alongside men and women in their Golden Age. We handle their daily non-medical tasks and help them to get around step-by-step, keeping them safe and caring for them as if they were family.
Since we are worker-owned, we seek to provide high quality service at an affordable price to allow those we serve to lead safer and happier lives at home, giving them the comfort of knowing that they are not alone and their loved ones the peace-of-mind that they are in good hands.
