Paradise Home Health Care LLC is excited to announce an expansion into “Contemporary Companion Care”, a service where people of a similar age to the senior will act as companion to you or your elder loved one. They can assist with many things, other than “hands on” care which requires certain certifications.


The Boca Raton based, private duty Home Care Company has been providing superior in-home assistance to seniors and families since 2010. “After years of referring companion assignments out, we decided since we have the licensure, infrastructure and know-how we might as well extend our caregiver/aide services to include companions who are retirees themselves” said Linda Highley, founder of Paradise Home Health Care.


“We are seeing an increase in demand from older adults and their adult children to have a friendly visitor rather than an aide, when hands-on care isn’t required” continued Ms. Highley. “Often an elderly person is looking for someone to engage in conversation with, share a meal, do some shopping and drive them to do errands. Having another retiree as a companion makes a lot of sense because there is greater camaraderie with a contemporary” explained Sherry Picker, MSW.


All companions are screened with a level II background check; complete an application and an in-depth interview. As with Home Health Aides and Certified Nurses Assistants, the magic is in the match. “A lot of time and consideration goes into matching the right companion for the client” said Linda Highley. It is also possible to have an aide help the client start their day (showering, dressing) and then later have a companion spend a few hours with them.


“The Retiree/Companion is happy to have a part time assignment, make a difference and make extra spending money, so we have seen a very positive response as we put the word out”, says Linda.
