Gerontology Home Companion Agency, Inc. is a private homecare aide organization. It was started in 1986 by gerontologists who recognized a need for a different kind of caregiver agency - not the typical medical model - but one that would work together with older people and their families to make safe, sensible and affordable plans to help people remain at home.


Our company recruits only aides and companions who have experience working with older people. We are passionate about finding those men and women who know that working at home with older people is more than a job. Many of them have been with us since the company began. Many aides are certified nursing assistants and certified home health aides; some are nursing professionals from other countries. They have many years experience as homecare aides. They impress us every day with their integrity and their dedication.


As gerontologists, Evelyn Mandel and Anne Hanssen understand the physical, social and psychological issues involved with normal aging and the challenges of those who are coping with illness and disability. They are familiar with community resources and the local continuum of care. They both worked actively in the company to oversee operations and to provide counsel to families who need extra support.
