I've been working with Silver Companions for almost two years. I have to say it's been one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had! Brian and Leslie, the owners, have supported me and guided me in my new career. They were very accommodating with my schedule as I pursue my R.N. degree. Their support in me to achieve my goals were second to none. They are like family and are my consummate cheerleaders. Their trust and faith in me to handle hard cases gave me the experience I needed. Even when I was unsure of my capabilities they assured me that I was the perfect candidate for these clients. My references reflect my hard work as well as theirs.What they've instilled in my heart is to continue to help other people. They gave me a chance when no one else would because I had no experience. And even though my journey will come to an end when I enter the Nursing Program, they have always said that if I ever need anything like advice that they would help if they could. Whatever I needed. Sounds like family to me!

their loving, caring yet professional attitude has been great. Each care giver is attentive, interactive, concerned over the top great! Thank you for loving and respecting my dad, seeing to his physical, medical, social and recreational activities.

TOTALLY SATISFIED! We would never look at any other company. This company changed our mother's life!! After her (brain stem-affected) stroke in May, she could not walk. Physical therapist said she must be exercised to improve (even neurologist was not sure Mom would ever walk again). Our Silver Companion caregiver exercised her numerous times DAILY, and within 1 1/2 months, Mom was walking behind her walker again! The caregiver was extremely caring, encouraging, fun, creative with exercises, honest, diligent in cleanliness, informative to our family, and went above-and-beyond the call of duty. We give this company 95% of the credit that our Mom walks today. Owners Brian & Leslie are professional and extremely caring in every way. We will never look for another company to take the best care of our loved ones. Silver Companions is the best in our estimation.

I really love this company. From the beginning, Brian (one of the owners) came out to see me. He explained everything they did and told me to call when I was ready. I called a few days later and he brought a caregiver out to meet me. He even stayed with her for a few hours to make sure we were comfortable. After he left, I began working with a nurse named Jenny. She made everything easy for me to manage. My situation is that my husband is 89 and has severe dementia. I am 84, but I don't need a lot of help. I am active but its hard to leave my husband at home alone because I know something bad will happen. I can trust that Jinny can help him shower and then she fixes breakfast and lunch for him. She even fixes our dinner so all I have to do is put it in oven. She plays games with him and even gets him to go outdoors to bask in the sun. When he's napping, she does my laundry or cleans up around the house without me asking her to! I feel really lucky to have her as I am so overwhelmed by his needs, but I can't bear to put him in a home. I want him to stay here where he has lived for over 30 years. Brian always follows up with me and is always available to answer my questions. I am needing more help during the week and I am actually looking forward to see who he sends next. If they are half as good as Jenny, I will still feel lucky.
