“More than pleased with their services…”

“I highly recommend Maxim at home services for caretaking services. I was desperately looking for options for my 86 year old mother living in Texas and I live in Colorado. I called 6-8 different service providers when I finally found Maxim at Home. I have been more than pleased with their services, continued communication, flexibility, and care.” ~ Client, Margareta

How to schedule your Companion

Our online Companion Scheduler makes arranging help when you need it a breeze.

When you sign up for your free account, our companion scheduler matches you with background-checked Companions in your area.

The easy-to-use scheduling feature lets you select your desired dates and times you need help, from 1-hour “Meet & Greet” shifts up to 24 hours in a day, any day of the week.

After you post your request, our background-checked companions available on your dates and times will respond. Responses to your job post will appear on your dashboard, ready for your review.

“The difference is the ability to choose…”

“With Maxim at home the difference is the ability to choose your own provider based on each caretaker’s bio and photo. All client companion communication is logged through their portal and I can control the schedule remotely. What a great idea!” ~ Client, Bancroft

YOU choose your companion

After you’ve posted your service job, you’ll be able to review the bios from responding companions and then select your favorite.

If you like your companion, you can keep them for repeat visits or pick someone new. It’s entirely up to you.

Regardless of who you choose, all our screened and background-checked companions are very passionate about helping people and genuinely look forward to getting to know their clients, listening to their unique stories, and finding ways to help them improve their day.

Safety & peace of mind

Maxim at Home’s dedicated Background Investigation Team and Advisor Team personally manage our rigorous Companion screening process, which is integral to our mission of providing safety for you and the ones you love.

Safety Screening

All our companions are trusted employees, not contractors, and each has passed an:

  • Application Assessment
  • One-on-One Behavioral Interview
  • Visual Identity Verification
  • National Sex Offender Background Check
  • Motor Vehicles/Driving Records Check (Drivers Only)
  • Comprehensive Federal & 50 State Background Check.

Our industry leading screening process, checks candidates before they’re hired and continuously re-checks them, providing ongoing peace of mind.

Liability & Workers Comp. Peace of Mind

Our comprehensive employee insurance policies cover all our Companions, including professional liability, unemployment insurance, and worker’s compensation. This relieves you from the personal burden of insurance and liability that could become your responsibility if you hire an independent contractor.
