Your Home Companion was founded by Laura Jenkins after her father became ill. When calling and interviewing other agencies, Laura felt that she was dealing with a business, first and foremost, and a caregiving company second. While Your Home Compassion is a business, the care has to come first. To put yourself in each and every client’s or loved one’s shoes and understand what they need and what their concerns are is the upmost priority. The desire to help make a difference in someone’s well being, that’s what is important. Laura felt as if these companies were selling a product to her, not a service of compassion. Unable to find someone she could trust enough to provide/care for her father’s well being, she set out to make a change. And in 2005, the very first office was open in St. Petersburg, FL.
Now, after much work, Laura opened an office in Annapolis, Easton and Chester, MD. Originally only providing in-home senior care services to Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s & Talbot counties, services were expanded in May 2013 to include Caroline County and to Anne Arundel county in 2016 as well.
