We are looking for engaging, compassionate individuals who are interested in supporting older adults. A companion position can require just several hours per week, or as much as 30+ hours per week.
ComForCare of New York City is a companion care agency serving Manhattan, Northern Brooklyn, and parts of Queens and the Bronx. Our mission is to connect our elder clients with outstanding companions who can improve their quality of life through social engagement, meaningful activities, and help with daily tasks that get more difficult with age. This job does not require "hands-on" care such as dressing or bathing assistance. Please note that these positions are for in-home care and that the address listed is for the administrative office. Caregivers will be providing services in clients' homes in the NYC area and must be local to the boroughs of NYC.
Our clients are retired professionals, creatives, life-long New Yorkers, and fascinating people with diverse life experiences. They would benefit greatly from a strong connection to a well-rounded companion with whom they can share their life. This is not a position where you will be "left to your own devices" to support someone. You will receive ongoing support from our staff and social work team, as well as a detailed briefing on any client you meet.
