Our Origin at Home™ Wellness Companions are hand-picked, Origin Academy™ trained, and proficient in homemaking, fitness and activity, nutrition, light housekeeping, personal safety, cognitive exercises/brain fitness, communication, and mindfulness. We provide a client experience like no other. In addition, we encourage our clients to enjoy all the amenities at our local communities through our Club Origin Membership.
“My mom, Jessica Lain, has been receiving companion services since it began as a pilot project last winter. Her companion has been a constant, they play games, watch shows, colour, go to the park for a walk and just visit together. Mom has someone to share stories with and go through pictures from her life. As an only child, it’s been a tremendous support to me knowing that every day, mom’s “Little Friend” as she calls her, will spend time with my mom. It’s a valuable service and I encourage families to consider how this may add quality of life for their loved ones. Both mom and I are grateful for this valuable service.”
