Our Care Associates
Agape Companions care associates are the perfect solution to help maintain levels of independence for your family member. We provide assistance with a wide range of daily activities from personal care to meal preparation and light housekeeping. We also understand that caregiving is not limited to “in home” activities. Our care associates can provide transportation for daily needs such as running errands, prescription pick up, grocery shopping, visits to doctors and other appointments. The simplest things like engaging in a conversation or sharing a meal give comfort to a family member who spends most of their time alone at home.
Your security and peace of mind is important to us. All Agape Companions associates are carefully screened and comply with the stringent hiring guidelines which our parent company, American Critical Care Services has in place for all of its staff. The completed application process for our non-medical care associates includes a criminal record check, skills inventory, two references, CPR certification, health form and drug screen. If applicable, CNA and HHA certificates are verified to ensure they are valid and current. Our non-medical highly qualified care associates include:
- Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA)
- Home Health Aids (HHA)
The process to ensure that you have the most compatible care associate in your family’s home begins the moment our Companions Consultant answers the phone. The unique needs of your family member will be discussed and we will gather additional information about preferences, needed skills and schedules. Once enough information and details have been gathered, we will identify and discuss with you the care associate that best meets your needs. With Agape Companions, you always have the opportunity to select the care associate of your choice; we never assign a care associate to our clients. Our Agape Companions is always there for you, even if there is the need for a change in companions associate. We value the trust you put in us to care for your family member as though they were our own.
Our Companions Consultant is waiting to take your call at (804) 320-1113. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
I have had the opportunity to have an Agape Companions associate work with me as companion, demonstrating skills of compassion, exhibiting patience and respect, and creating an optimistic and inspirational environment. She taught me to eliminate “Can’t” from my vocabulary. Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. She possesses a character of fairness and honesty, the ability to make clients like me feel the “sky is the only limit,” she says “just try I know you can do this.” She possesses significant skills in communications by making her client feel special. Working with Agape Companions has been an awesome experience and we will gladly recommend your business to others who have a need of care.
