Who uses our Companions?

Companion care is often used by children who do not live near their parents to help them keep a close eye on the health and happiness of their parents.

Just as importantly, our companions help to keep people active and engaged in their favourite activities – even their local community.

Aged care companions are also helpful for all aspects of elderly care and home care. Keeping your loved ones in their own home.
