At TLC Companions, we know it isn’t easy to invite a stranger into your home to provide personal care. That is why our companions are thoroughly screened through personal interviews and are observed on-site as well.
Each employee has a complete physical and criminal background check. Our companions receive in-service training on environmental safety, medical emergencies and infection control. They are assessed frequently during their employment to ensure continuity of care and client satisfaction
