Organization Details:

Caregiver Companion
Last updated on August 27, 2013


Caregiver companion is a network of interfaith volunteers, who strive to improve the quality of life for caregivers of the sick, frail and disabled in their homes as well as to provide assistance to the ill, frail and disabled who desire to remain in their homes.

Caregiver Companion is a unique organization whose volunteers help families caring for individuals with disabilities without regard to their race, age, sex, color, religion, national ancestry, and without attempting to evangelize or proselytize - at no cost to the recipient. Families in need of services are referred to Caregiver Companion by social agencies, home health organizations, hospital discharge planners and churches. Volunteers come from service organizations, churches, local universities and from the broader community.l

Caregiver Companion is sponsored by the Congregation of Saint Joseph and was founded by Sister Veronica Baumgartner CSJ in February of 1995. With initial funding from the Sisters of Saint Joseph, support from St. Mary Cathedral, and donated office space from St. Ann's Church, Caregiver Companion began its service to the caregivers of Tippecanoe County. In July 2002, Sister Veronica opened a second office in Tipton, Indiana.
