Home Companion Solutions is a division of The Nurse Agency, a company founded in 2001 by Penny Golden, RN, Steven Golden and Ann Weist. As a former geriatric nurse, Penny found that she missed the direct patient care she provided when she was a staff nurse at Rush University Medical Center, so she recently began working as a Nurse Care Manager for a few geriatric clients. She noticed the great need her clients had for extra help around the home to supplement the home nursing care they were receiving. Many of her patients and their families were facing the difficult decision between staying in their home and the high cost of moving to a long term care facility.
Penny knew that the personal, caring business model she, Steve and Ann created for The Nurse Agency would work well for a companion business. They started working on creating a division of The Nurse Agency that would offer companion care to local area residents. Home Companion Solutions was created to offer clients compassionate, reliable care at a reasonable fee.
We believe that excellent service, reliability and trust are the keys to building strong and successful relationships with clients and our companion employees. We pride ourselves on being "The Compassionate Care Solution."
