"Companion Services of America has helped me take care of my wife for over two months. I called Companion Services when I became overwhelmed with stress and worry over how to care for my wife. She had a broken back and long covid. I needed to keep her safe, secure and she needed help during the night. With the help of our wonderful caregivers, I am much less overwhelmed. I am much more confident that my wife is sleeping safely through the night. My wife's caregiver Maribel is energetic, talkative, safety conscious and always helpful with chores. Anna is strong, steady, and very safety conscious. She suggested the installation of a bed rail to simplify safe toileting and helped teach my wife how to use if with confidence. Both of her caregivers are prompt, pleasant and always helpful."

"My mother has used Companion Services of America's home care services for over four years now. Before we called them for help she was very anxious. Now she is comforted and happy with the socialization they provide. Her caregivers are amazing! They are patient and comfort my parents tremendously. The staff at CSA is wonderful. Occasionally we have schedule changes, or changes in our needs and the team is always very helpful!"

"We have used other agencies in the past and none compare to Companion Care. Jamie the owner is always responsive and manages to pull rabbits out of a hat to solving problems. The caregiver team has been extraordinary in being proactive and thinking ahead of my mother, which is not easy to do. The team respects her and knows the rhythm of engaging and giving her space. The team is also qualified and vigilant to watch for medical signs that could be harmful. I recommend Jamie, Mary and our caregiver team with high marks!"
