A Senior Companion, LLC is not a franchise. We are a small company which allows us to focus on our seniors in a more personal and individual manner. What makes A Senior Companion, LLC distinctive is our personal commitment to our seniors. We know that building a relationship takes time. The owner and founder, Colleen Kruse, spends the first few weeks with just the client and herself, thus allowing her to establish a more personal relationship. A care plan is developed based on routines, personalities and individual needs.
Colleen is a Certified Nursing Assistant, certified in Alzheimer's and Dementia Care, Hospice Care, and a Certified Pet Partner for
Animal Assisted Therapy with the Delta Society as well as a Certified Elder Care Specialist. She is also a member of the Colorado Gerontological Society.
Our caregivers are CPR and first aid certified, criminal background checks are run, and references are gladly provided on request. The time and commitment invested in our clients and companions makes our company unique in this ever-growing service industry. Colleen has been a CNA for over 10 years and continues to educate herself and our companions in all areas relating to senior issues.
Each client is matched with their own companion, omitting the stress of several different caregivers to one client. Colleen spends time with both the companion and the client to ensure that a bond of trust, reliability and friendship begin. This is the professionalism that sets a personal standard and passion that A Senior Companion, LLC represents in the field of 'senior care'.
We provide companion visits and services to seniors who are living independently in their homes or living with adult children who are caregivers. Our goal is to provide you or your loved one the assistance and services that are needed to maintain a happy life while staying at home.
