About Us

Our mission: To enhance quality of life through encouragement and compassion.  Your loved one will become part of our family and receive the care and respect they deserve.
Companion Home Care of Long Island was founded by Dorothy Anderson in early 2004. Dorothy, a certified nursing assistant and single working mother, was dealing with a difficult situation when her own Mom needed care. Mom didn’t need medical care but did needed assistance with almost all daily living needs; cooking, cleaning, errands, doctors appointments etc.. She also needed a friend, a companion to keep the loneliness of living alone with a chronic illness at bay
Dorothy started seeking help but kept running into the same issue; she did not need the expense or the expertise of a certified aid, yet, she needed more than a housekeeper. That’s when she realized other people must be dealing with similar situations and the idea of a companion came to be. Dorothy knew of co-workers that could use extra hours and shortly thereafter, Companion Home Care of Long Island was born.

It seemed to her that, during a time of worry and high stress, no family should have to add to their worries by having the difficult, sometimes seemingly impossible task of finding appropriate non-medical care for their loved one.

Dorothy serves as President and CEO of Companion Home Care of Long Island who’s corporate office is located in Melville, NY. Companion Home Care is a non-medical home care agency serving the elderly and others needing assistance and supervision with daily living activities, throughout Western Suffolk, Nassau, Queens and Brooklyn County since 2004.

Dorothy’s core expertise includes an extensive background of more than 38 years, focusing on Home Care, Senior Care and operating a successful in-home care agency.
