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.

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.

You may call us at any time. As soon you know you would like services. It is imperative that we meet with the client and/or family to ensure proper care. In this way we can make the best possible match for your needs. But there are times when a situation arises that require expediency. Under those stressful situations we will do our best to accommodate you in a timely manner, helping you to ease your stress.
