A FriendlyCare Companion is a person who provides amity and assistance to clients in need, with responsibilities that include bathing, grooming, toileting, medication reminders, transferring, food preparation, laundry, general housekeeping and other daily living tasks. Companions may also assist the elderly, mentally disabled, or ill patients, while observing changes in a client's overall condition.
A successful companion should demonstrate a caring, empathetic, and compassionate demeanor; understanding that they are there to assist the client with whatever needs they may have.

It is paramount for companions to stay calm and be understanding even in trying situations and must also be able to interact with others who have relationships with the client, i.e. family, friends, or other professionals.
