We strongly believe that even the smallest events in one's day can make a big difference.
True to that belief, it is not uncommon for our Principal to stop by your home with flowers, a magazine, or even homemade chicken soup.
Unlike most other home care agencies, A Long Term Companion is always available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Because we are dedicated to providing peace of mind for you and your family, you will receive the cell phone number of our President, who is always on-call.
Michele Kilstein, President of A Long Term Companion, has been a professional caregiver for more than 18 years. As a child, Michele spent over 10 years visiting her great-grandmother in a nursing home. At the time, she was too young to change the circumstances of her Grandmom Fanny's living conditions, however her time spent at the nursing home taught Michele the importance of companionship for aging individuals. Michele founded A Long Term Companion in her great-grandmother's honor, to provide for others what her Grandmom Fanny did not have -- the ability to remain at home with dignity, and receive the quality, personalized care that every family member deserves.
With that being said, we recognize that inviting somebody into your home to care for you or your loved ones is an extremely difficult decision to make. At A Long Term Companion, we understand the importance of family, and we treat your loved one as a member of our own.
