Elder Care Companions

How do we define an elder care companion?

Many of our parents are aging and require more assistance than we can provide comfortably. This said, they aren’t to a point where assisted living is needed. We help our clients hover this space with the placement of an elder care companion.

We list these positions between $25-35/hr, depending on the requirements of our clients and experience and certifications brought to the table by the elder care companions. Example: sometimes our elder care companions hold a nursing degree or CNA degree. They typically require more by way of compensation.

Triangle Elder Care Companions are known for being:

Confident, full of humility, and discreet.

Resourceful, thorough, diligent.

Kind, patient, and easy going.

Passionate about safety and mindfulness.

Able to let frustrations roll right off their shoulders.

Calm, capable, and adaptable.
