“You are beyond awesome, Once again, you contribute so much to our family and to Bettys quality of life. I am certain that without you and your teams companionship, she would not have lasted as long as she did. I’m sure Betty knew and felt your loving warmth over the past year- I knew you would be perfect for her and my mother as soon as I met you!”

“I saw the difference I could make in my parents’ lives just by being there for them. Knowing that I can help ease the loneliness of someone in a nursing home, and give some peace of mind to family members who cannot be there every day, that means the world to me.”
“There’s a feeling of pure joy you get when you see a smile on the face of someone you visit. Knowing that you are bringing them happiness, there’s really nothing like it, and it’s one of many reasons why I love what I do.”
“I became a Companion to give my time to people who need someone to be there. Everyone wants someone who will listen to them, and when I hear their wisdom, their stories, they motivate me to provide the best care possible.”
“Each person deserves to be valued and to be truly seen, especially at a time of life where they are facing incredible challenges. As a companion, I enjoy sharing my time with those I visit in ways that honour and appreciate where they are, day by day.”
“Living so far away from my own family, I know what a relief it is to have someone who cares visit my own family members regularly. As a companion, I love providing a sense of comfort and security for families by ensuring their loved one is well and happy when I visit.”
“My grandmother and mother have instilled in me that taking good care of each other and traveling with someone on their life journey, no matter the circumstance, is a privilege. As a Companion, I am grateful to experience clients through the eyes of love and friendship each day.”
“I enjoy bringing my positive attitude, warm smile, and genuine heart to each visit. As a Companion, if I can help ease some of the stress for another family, while at the same time developing a meaningful new friendship, I can’t think of any other way I would rather spend my time.”
“As a Companion, I am pleased to make a difference in the lives of those I visit. I see it in the smiles when I arrive, and when a client wants to share a special secret, or is eager to know when I will return. I feel it in the warm hugs and in the gentle squeezes of my hand.”
“Seniors are often forgotten in society and to me they are the best part. It is important for everyone to have a source of companionship in life. It is especially beneficial for loved ones living in long-term care where dedicated, personalized attention is challenging for family members and staff. As a Companion, I make the most of my visits with clients, offering them the extra TLC they often need to brighten their days, which makes everyone feel better.”
