One review on “Golden Steps”

  1. Frank Molina says:

    Golden Steps was simply the best decision I made regarding my father’s care… Golden Steps were local, had experience with Alzheimer’s and emphasized their willingness to be flexible. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for compassionate, affordable care for their loved ones.

    Elder Care Home Companions provide non-medical companion services that provide emotional support and companionship that is tailored for each client.....(more)
  • Golden Steps is a worker-owned cooperative, which means that all of the members make decisions about the business collectively by meeting bi-monthly and participating in various work committees to further their professional skills and the success of their business. The companions that the clients and families work with are also the owners of the cooperative; therefore the commitment and dedication to high quality care are apparent from the start.....(more)
  • When a client calls us for the first time, our office manager assesses what the basic needs are of the senior. An interview is then scheduled between a companion, the senior and the caretakers (if applicable) to discuss wishes of the senior and his/her family members. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about the companion’s work experience as well. If it seems to be a good match, an initial meeting is scheduled in order for the companion to conduct a thorough assessment of the client’s needs before initiating the ongoing companionship care.....(more)
  • Yes. Our services are able to be rendered anywhere seniors need assistance. Prior arrangements need to be made with the facilities to be able to start services.....(more)
