ABOUT MY GREAT COMPANION
Companions You Can Trust
My Great Companion supports seniors within the Cowichan Valley by providing caring, individualized service for those either living independently or in various supportive environments. We help our clients get the most out of every day by assisting them to live the life they want to live, maintaining their independence and well-being as much as possible.
Senior Home Care Companions
Some seniors in our community go for days or weeks without speaking to anyone. Loneliness and isolation is a huge problem and has been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems. It is amazing what a visit once, twice or 3 times a week makes. Companions can visit clients as often as is needed to offer support and add that all-important human element to their day. Our Companions connect with each of our clients providing them with a feeling of support, friendship and security.
Our Companions are thoroughly screened based on their skill sets, experience and personality. All have undergone thorough background checks and possess recent clear national criminal check for the vulnerable sector so you can be sure you are in safe hands. We are fully insured and are covered by Worksafe BC.
We appreciate our hardworking Companions by providing a competitive wage with medical and dental benefits. Our work environment is one where we respect one another and this has created trusted, loyal and hardworking Companions. Our low staff turnover enables us to provide a consistent and reliable service.
