Our Legacy of Compassionate In-Home Care
American Home Companions was founded in 1992 by Don Reynolds. A former Methodist minister, Mr. Reynolds had visited many elderly seniors in nursing homes and had witnessed first-hand the indignity that many elders suffered due to inadequate elder care. He formed American Home Companions to allow seniors, including his own mother (Mimi), to continue to live in the comfort of their own homes with an in-home caregiver.
Mimi's experience mirrors our clients'. As we age, our circle of friends, places, and interests slowly diminishes. Mimi was widowed at age 77, by age 80 she had outlived most of her close friends and by age 82 her loss of hearing made it difficult for her to meet new people. At 84 she was no longer able to drive safely and she became dependent upon others for shopping and social interaction.
BEING INDEPENDENT SHOULD NOT MEAN BEING ALONE. American Home Companions helps Florida’s elderly seniors maintain their independence and quality of life through contact with friends, places, and interests without relying solely on their families.
