Doing some good never felt so great.

For students, there are some things that you just can’t learn in a classroom. On-the-job training can have incredible benefits for a student – learn career skills like communication and time management, reduce your student loan debt or even boost your resume. But what can you do that will offer the flexibility to work and go to school?

As a Companion with Bluegrass Extra Care, you can gain real-world experience helping those in need in a format that fits your school schedule—all while earning the money you need to support your education.

How do Companions make a difference?
• Preparing meals
• Paying bills
• Light housekeeping
• Playing games
• Transportation assistance
• Simply sitting and having a conversation

You have more flexibility to work with your school schedule than being locked into a 40-hour work week. And if need be, it is easy to pick up more hours should you need more money at certain times of the year.

Not only will being a companion help you, but it will have a valuable impact on the life of a senior and their caregiver. Companions offer peace of mind – seniors are able to continue to live at home with the assistance they need, and families can be assured that a compassionate caregiver is with their loved one offering a social connection to live a happy, healthy life.
