The Companion You Need on Your Journey
to Providing Better Dementia Care
for Your Loved One
Effectively managing the complexities of a loved one’s dementia care requires an experienced partner you can trust. With a 45-year legacy of serving the community, we at the Institute on Aging understand caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be an overwhelming and emotionally draining experience. We are proud to offer Companioa, a comprehensive program dedicated to aging adults with dementia and their family caregivers. Companioa (come-pan-yuh) is designed to provide reliable and consistent care and support, ensuring your loved one receives the best care possible.
We offer a range of services, including high-quality and reliable In-Home Dementia Care, an Adult Day Program, and our Concierge Client Care. Our team of dementia-trained experts will work with you to learn about your elderly loved one’s strengths, interests, and abilities and explore the best care options to help him or her live the best life possible.
At the Institute on Aging, we’re dedicated to empowering adults with disabilities and their families, providing a community of support to help you through this difficult time. With Companioa, you don’t have to go it alone. We’re here to help and support you every step of the way.

Getting Started Is Simple
Companioa starts with giving us a call or chatting with us, filling out our online form, stopping by our Presidio Enrichment Center, or asking us to meet you at your home. We will then work with you to determine your loved one’s needs as well as begin the process of mapping out a personalized Companioa care plan.
We know the first step is getting to know you and your loved one to learn your unique situation. Once your care coach gets to know you both better, he or she will help build out a plan that works for you and your wallet. Through our family of offerings you can customize services to best suit your needs. Call us today to learn more about our offerings.
