Testimonials

If you are searching for kind, caring, compassionate, honest, hardworking, creative, talented, wise, dependable (+ every other positive attribute) companion care for your loved one, you have arrived! Do yourself a favor, put your pencil down + look no further. For 2+ years I’ve gone through the highs + (mostly) lows of finding the “best” care for my parents (both Alzheimers) living in our home. I’ve hired care through friend referrals + elder consultants, through big agencies, small agencies, independents + even my own dependents :) I was close to giving up and started researching assisted living options, when I made one last-ditch effort to find the “perfect match”.. and I found Robyn! That moment will forever be known as "Life BEFORE Robyn + We finally have a LIFE, AFTER". Robyn + her DREAM team are magical, not simply Companion Caregiving they are CareLIVING, fueling LIFE + creating JOY; what we all wish our loved ones could experience in this stage. #EternallyGrateful #LuckyUs

Carlie R., LCSW

As an octogenarian and inveterate hoarder for many decades, I have recently had the happy – and quite remarkable – experience of using the amazing services of Robyn Lighthammer and her Companion Caregiving team in an ongoing effort to make my hopelessly cluttered home livable again. It’s clear to me that Robyn’s exceptional team has much to offer northern Virginia residents in many aspects of eldercare, and as I continue to age, I will happily engage their services in a variety of categories as my need for assistance inevitably increases. But for my current purposes, they are already working wonders for me in a sorely needed decluttering endeavor.
In that regard, the team members are proving themselves to be creative, energetic, thoughtful, imaginative, concerned, careful, empathetic, kind, solicitous, cheerful, and hard-working experts in organizing, reviewing, and removing the abundance of unnecessary clutter that has been relentlessly building up in my home over several decades. Their dedicated efforts are resuscitating my hopelessly overwhelmed living space.
I suspect that my decluttering tasks are only the beginning of what I believe will become a recurring consultation with the Companion Caregiving team over any number of concerns and needs that are likely to arise in connection with my determination to age in place as the years go by. Robyn and her team are unusually capable and pleasant people to work with – dedicated to the tasks at hand, genuinely concerned for their clients, and incredibly effective in accomplishing the task at hand.

Robyn and her team at Companion Caregiving have been a wonderful addition to our lives. The joy that they bring to my mother is priceless and the help they give in making her day more pleasant and fruitful is win for us both. My mother thrived when she was with Robyn and she just adored her. I can' thank her enough for all she did for my mom and how much care and love she showed my mother when we couldn't be there. I could not be more sincere in my five-star recommendation
