Co-Founded in 2005
Lifeline Companion Services was co-founded in 2005 by Sherry Litt and Noma Kaz as a boutique home care agency specializing in one-on-one personal care to seniors aging in place at home.
Options for Families
We are often asked why we founded Lifeline Companion Services and the answer has always been a simple one. We wanted to educate and provide options to other families faced with caring for a love one whose wishes are to age in place in their own home.
We knew only too well (from our own personal experience) that not everyone can adjust well to leaving their family home for a senior community, especially when there may be some cognitive or chronic care needs that require one-on-one oversight and care.
A Senior’s Choice Education
So in 2005, we aligned with The Senior’s Choice, a national home care network. Their program to educate newly formed home care agency owners on the organization, development, and operations of a non-medical home care agency was intense.
We focused on policies and procedures, interviewing, training, recruiting, types of services and protocol, communication, advocacy, resources, elder law, and day-to-day operational guidelines. We attended conferences and workshops on ethical business practices, hiring practices, safety for clients and employees, legal requirements, and best practices for caring for clients with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease.
Committed to Geriatric Outreach and Support
Our journey began in 2005 and continues as we address the ongoing challenges facing our senior population today and the families who care for them. We have already assisted over 450 clients ranging in age from 55 to 105 and are encouraged and excited to expand in-house and outreach services to support the growing needs of the baby-boomer generation and help them prepare for their own future through our Community Partner Resource Network of aging life professionals.
As we look ahead to celebrating our 17th-year in-home care, we could not be prouder of our journey and the gratitude received from the families we have served and the dedication of our personal care attendants who have served them.
Our seniors deserve to be seen, heard and respected, and at Lifeline, they are.
We are proud members of
