Loneliness is an epidemic and is compounded by age and illness. Our companions build meaningful connections with your loved one, supporting you and your family when you need it the most. We are here for you.

What Makes Comforting Companions Different?

When your loved one is lonely, and/or living with progressive illness like dementia, it can often be a very difficult and emotional time for you and for them, especially if they have had to move, to receive care.  You would do anything to ensure that they are continuing to live a meaningful life, rich with friendship, activity and purpose. At Comforting Companions, we understand that you want to do all you can to help, but balancing your family, career and your personal responsibilities can be tough, and especially difficult if you don’t live close. You just can’t do it all.  Comforting Companions specializes in companion care that is caring, meaningful and supports not only your loved one, but you as well. Think of us as a trusted friend you can count on to visit your loved one and keep you well updated on each visit. We believe its just as important to be there for you, as it is for those you love.

Dementia affects us all.  Whether you are a family member with a loved one diagnosed, a health care worker, a community member or business, we all have a duty to care for each other by understanding more about dementia.  By learning about its progression and how we can best adapt our communication and expectations, we will contribute in a positive and caring way to others well being. Each of us has the power to make a difference in the life of someone living with dementia.


Our companions are at the heart of all we do. Ask any past or current client about us and you will often get a similar answer... our companions are kind, caring, compassionate people who take great pride in helping to make a positive difference in your loved one’s day. Our services are highly personalized, respected and often referral based, which speaks to who we are. Whether your loved one is living at home, assisted living, a nursing home or in hospital, we want to help.


When your loved one is living with dementia or any other progressive illness, it can be overwhelming and emotional for families. You wonder if you are doing enough, doing the right things, and maybe even feeling guilty because you just can’t do it all.  Your life is busy, you have many other responsibilities and it makes it a challenge to be there as often as you would like. Let us help by being there for you, so that your loved one can continue to live a meaningful and full life, whatever their age or illness.
