Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Your Hours?

Our hours are based on client needs. We offer client visits most days 9 A.M. to 5 P.M, most evenings until 8 P.M, and some weekends & holidays based on client request and companion availability. Our normal day office hours are Monday through Friday 9 A.M to 5 P.M and we are reachable Saturdays 8 A.M.-12 P.M. via text on our number listed. 

We will be testing express after-hours service for unique situations in the fall of 2017.

How Are Your Prices Factored In?

There are many in-home programs for seniors offering an array of services, at various costs. In order to provide truly engaging and stimulating conversation for our services requires trained background checked & personality tested individuals with a college education and a professional communications, empathetic, forward thinking, and computer & smartphone background to keep our seniors engaged. 

Our companions are articulate and excellent communicators. Silver Companions are more than simply friends, they enhance our client's lives by providing exceptional (in-home and outing) cognitive support each week. 

Experts agree that interaction and stimulation help seniors maintain greater independence, higher cognitive and memory function, stave off development of depression and (most importantly) enhance quality of life. The value our companions bring to the lives of our clients is immeasurable.  

Why Don't You Provide any Clinical or Health Support Services?

We are not a home "health" provider. While Silver Companions can be considered a senior service provider, the sole focus of our services is to create an intellectually rich environment for independent seniors; not to provide any form of clinical care. Silver Companions serves as a piece of the broader "quality of life" puzzle to help seniors and their families.  

How do you Screen Your Companions?

Our companions are college educated, insured, and have been thoroughly interviewed and personality tested/screened. They are also criminal background checked for the value and safety of our clients.  

Are you a Franchise?

No. We are a privately held, locally owned family business. Our management team and staff work at a very personal level to ensure the best quality service we can provide to our clients.

What if I or my loved one no longer lives at home?

Since we are hired by you and your family, we can visit any independent or assisted living community in our service area as your guest and visitor. Our primary role is intellectual stimulation and isolation prevention.
