Company Profile

Good Companion is a Warwickshire based business offering administrative and companionship services to the elderly. It is all about making a difference to the older person and to their families. Nowadays the busy demands of life, work and young children means that families can't always spend as much time with their older loved ones as they would like. Good Companion gives peace of mind to the older person knowing that there is someone to look after them, take them out and spend time with them and also to their families knowing that there is a professional, caring and responsible person looking out for their loved ones.
