"The AFA Dementia Care Partners course was great for its new information and also confirmed many of the things that I've seen in my almost 15 years of being a caregiver for people with Alzheimer's," said Belton. "The examination was quite challenging as it consisted of open ended essay style questions based on different real life scenarios that one may encounter as a caregiver."
At Companion Home Care, we believe it is crucial to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in home care, Alzheimer's, dementia, and memory care. Owner Michelle Belton is a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) with over 14 years of senior home care experience. She regularly attends classes, workshops, and conferences to gain useful knowledge on the latest in home care research and best practices so that she can share this useful information with the Companion Home Care staff.

We are not medical but we are extremely important to the quality of life of our clients. We are looking for "caregiver" personalities. A volunteer background is just as good as CNA experience to us. People with customer service backgrounds are also welcome to apply. Our caregivers are honest, mature, possess a strong work ethic, good judgment skills, patience, understand the frailties of aging, and are able to work unattended. Our job is unbelievably rewarding and personally satisfying. I am happy to train the right person. If you live in the Roanoke, VA area and you "love old people" you will love this job!
