At the Good Companion we find time and time again that the elderly are at times lonely and even a single weekly visit of a couple of hours helps. A special outing, social gardening or catching up over a cup of tea is inexpensive to put in place and can make a difference. At times we are contacted by family and friends of a rest home resident who would benefit by being visited by their own private companion. As with other aspects of life, a relatively insignificant action can assist in achieving a larger positive outcome.

"We have been really impressed with our contact with the GC. Initially with Ally who has kept in touch with us and found us the lovely Pauline who goes in to see our Dad. She is caring and very thoughtful. Ally is very good and keeping us up to date with everything and any changes.  Very happy, thank you."

 

"Had a member of the good companion team look after my husband for a week while I took a break. The care and kindness shown was amazing. The house was very well looked after. I would certainly use The Good Companion again."

  • Dion Glen Waverley

    Hi Team, the three carers are brilliant! Mum is very happy and comfortable with all three. I know this because for the first time in a long time she is actually smiling. I attribute that all to Sarah, Ruth and Danielle and the companionship and care they provide. Your choice of carers has been spot on!

  • Mary Defelice

    From our first contact, to the efficient lovelies in the office and to the wonderful carers that come to us , we have had nothing but professional , quality and caring support. The carers have been patient, encouraging and engaging with my mum . We would highly recommend TGC. Thank you TGC.   

  • Mark Camberwell

    We wanted to let you know that mum has improved so much that we no longer need to monitor her, she can now take herself to the toilet overnight. We also wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to you and your team of carers who helped us through these emotionally tough last few months.

  • Martyn Gilbert

    Thank you to the team at The Good Companion. Their staff are so caring and easy to deal with. What could have been a very stressful situation was made so much easier to deal with because of the kindness and attention from the THE GOOD COMPANION AUSTRALIA team. Would highly recommend this organisation.

  • Shannon Shelton

    We have some of the   best carers for my mum, they have become like friends to her and also her extended family and friends. They girls have been absolutely amazing in caring for all her needs. We are very lucky to have found this company to help us with our mothers needs.

  • Mariana Thom

    We couldn't be happier with our carer John who goes out of his way, taking him out for a coffee, walk and general exercising at home. Dad is a quiet man but has built a good bond and enjoys Johns company on a weekly basis. Recommend this service highly and more so John. Very happy !!

  • Maryan Lovric

    The team were easy to work with and I felt they really cared that mum was provided with the best possible care. The team of carers were lovely. Any concerns we had were quickly addressed. The carers always turned up on time and we were even able to arrange additional services at short notice.

  • Jenny Lower Templestow

    Just got home from visiting Mum. She seems very happy with Sarah, who has managed to win her over by taking an interest in her garden. If there's one thing Mum loves it's tending to her plants, so Sarah is definitely a winner there.

  • Sig Hagedorn

    The Good Companion Australia has been very helpful in dealing with my daughter, after a pretty bad situations she experienced prior to The Good Companion Australia coming on board, their carers have shown knowledge and experience, management has seen fit to follow up in person when the need for reassurance, fixes and compassion was required, I would recommend them.

  • Brent Carter

    While in hospital recovering from a stroke my NDIS coordinator contacted TGC Australia to see if they had a Support Worker/Carer that was suitable for myself and my needs because I live on my own. They couldn't have sent anyone better, my support worker and I have many things in common sports, music etc. I feel very safe and secure and TGC AUSTRALIA have supported me in every way and encourage me to be more independent, my standard of living is actually better now than before I had a stroke and in hospital.

  • Graeme

    Great experience and service from The Good Companion. After losing her ability to drive, we wanted to provide our mother with the flexibility of being able to go out to places and have regular social contact with a companion. She very much enjoyed the first 2-hour outing, and looks forward to planning where she will go with her Companion each week. It's given her someone new to talk to, and a greater level of independence and interest. Very happy to endorse and recommend The Good Companion to other families.
