“My companions are CPR and First Aid certified, criminal background checks and references provided on request. I personally work with my clients for the first few weeks on my own before I select a companion for them. I then work with the companion and client again for the next few weeks insuring compatibility and trust. The time and commitment I invest in my clients and companions makes my company unique in this ever-growing service industry. I have been a C.N.A. for over 20 years and continue to educate myself and my companions in all areas relating to senior issues.”A Senior Companion, Colleen and RowdyWe provide our senior services to the South Denver metro area of Colorado including South Denver, Englewood, Littleton, Centennial, Cherry Hills, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker, Castle Rock and now providing our services to seniors in the Bennett and Strasburg area.
