Business Spotlight: Companion Extraordinaire

Companion Extraordinaire provides personal home care services in the comfort of their client’s homes. They see clients in Richmond, Ashland, Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield, and the surrounding counties and can provide a care program that is personalized to meet clients’ needs. 

From one-hour visits to 24-hour care, and companion services to private duty skilled nursing, Companion Extraordinaire delivers the help a client needs wherever “home” happens to be. Services offered include Personal Care, Palliative Care, Skilled Care services, and Family Care training to meet clients’ needs.

Companion Extraordinaire began in Ashland, where owner Dawn Beninghove lives. Dawn appreciates the sense of community in Ashland.  

“When I arrived in Ashland, I had lost my mom and my brother 35 years earlier, but when I lost my dad to Dementia and Parkinson’s, I really felt alone. That’s where the community of Ashland surrounded me with love and kindness. One of my favorite verses of scripture is, 'In times of trouble, He wraps His arms around us and comforts us.' That is what Ashland has done for me.”

Since 2003, the staff has lived and worked in the same community as their clients. This allows them to grow stronger relationships with clients and their families. Companion Extraordinaire will celebrate its 20th anniversary this May!

Dawn was raised in Lakeside, so expanding services to that neighborhood in 2016 was a natural extension. Up next: Companion Extraordinaire will open a Bon Air location in 2023. Learn more at: https://cenninc.com/
