What We Do

Why Choose
Home Care Services

One-on-one care in the privacy of your own home is the best reason to choose in-home care over a facility.

Additionally, it is impossible to see germs, but they are all around us. In a care facility, these germs can spread quickly and cause devastating infections like:  COVID-19, Flu, Norovirus, Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), Pneumonia, MRSA, and C-diff.

Seniors that receive care at home are at less risk for contracting these infections.

Companion Extraordinaire invests countless hours training our care providers to use the safest possible precautions to keep our clients safe and comfortable.

Companion Extraordinaire

The Companion Extraordinaire Story

Dawn Beninghove

RN, CCM, CRP, NCCDP, CSA

Founder, Chief Operating Officer, Registered Nurse, Certified Case
Manager, Certified Rehabilitation Professional, Faith Community Nurse,
National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, Certified Senior Advisor

The creation of Companion Extraordinaire has truly been a labor of love. It grew out of caring for my father during his struggle with Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia.

I started my 39-year Nursing career at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. My position evolved from Staff Nurse to Administrator of Home Care. I obtained my National Certification in Case Management and undertook a specialization caring for patients suffering from brain injuries and Dementia. For the last 17 years, I have been honored to serve as Founder and Owner of Companion Extraordinaire.

During my tenure at Companion Extraordinaire, I have completed a Ministerial Internship Program; received a Faith Community Nurse Certification through Bon Secours; become a Certified Senior Advisor; and completed a Palliative Care Nursing Certification.

My experiences, training and areas of expertise give me a depth of wisdom in the Nursing field that I am grateful to pass along to our current generation of nurses, aides, employees and students that make up our gifted team at Companion Extraordinaire.
