“I love working at Companion Extraordinaire. My clients are just so wonderful. I love and care for all of my co-workers too. Not long ago, I was having a mini stroke and I didn’t know. I finished my shift, and came home. The next morning I went to the ER. Miss Dawn checked up on me. She is an excellent employer and cares about the well-being of her Care Pros. CNAs, CPAs… We are a happy little family. Come on in and join us.”

“The Companion Extraordinaire office staff has really helped me grow in my field. I’m glad they have a lot of patience with me. My experiences with my long-time client is like a treasure chest that I will keep that forever. He was like a grandfather. I learned many things from him. The song, “You Are My Sunshine”, always reminds me of my client everywhere I go. I’m getting goosebumps. That was our theme song. When you join Companion Extraordinaire, they will give all their love and all their knowledge to help you grow in this special field.”

“I have spent so much time with my clients. It is as if I have taken on new family members. You love them just like they are your family. My clients and I have done everything together: hair appointments, grocery shopping, cleaning up the house, etc… I am involved in all of their daily-life activities. You don’t expect to get that connected to strangers… but you do. You never forget that type of connection. That’s what really drew me to continue my journey with Companion Extraordinaire. I didn’t want to be a nurse… it kind of just happened. I was with Companion Extraordinaire for so long, and felt I wanted to do more. One day after work, I went to a local college and I sat for almost two hours talking with one of the directors. It felt like a good fit. Companion Extraordinaire is different from any other company that I’ve worked for. I am encouraged to grow. Everyone is encouraged to do their best. It makes a big difference. Companion has been by my side since the day I walked in the door for my interview at 18 years old. Companion is not just a job. You are taking on family, friendships… and these things are forever. If you decide to move on, you carry with you a wealth of skills and confidence gained from being part of this wonderful team.”

“My comfort with Companion Extraordinaire comes down to the fact that I’m not alone. I know who I am, what I can do, and what I can’t do. The importance of having an ancillary personnel makes all the difference to me. There’s always somebody available by phone. They’re there. To me that makes a difference. It makes me feel comfortable. If you don’t know what you’re looking for in a company, why not go where there’s kind people that are always available to assist you?”
