Your Caring Companion

About

Your Caring Companion was founded by Yvonne Bakker to support her vision of a first-rate personalized companionship service that would treat people with respect, compassion and dignity by elevating the well-being and comfort of those loved ones she was fortunate enough to be a caring companion for.


Yvonne E. Bakker 

Yvonne is experienced, educated, and committed to ensuring a high-quality of life for all of her cherished clients. She has passed the rigorous background checks you would expect and is suitably insured.


Hailing from the Netherlands, Yvonne's family immigrated to Canada in the 60's, landing in Northern Ontario. Later, having moved to British Columbia, Yvonne settled down and raised two lovely children of her own - a daughter and son.


Crediting her parents with raising her with old fashioned values, Yvonne naturally gravitated to being part of a care team.

Yvonne began specializing in companionship in 1990 and has been very passionate about providing excellent care ever since.

"I love being able to care for seniors and respecting their need to stay as independent as possible. I believe this supports their vitality and provides much needed dignity and feelings of accomplishment."

Yvonne has spent time volunteering at facilities such as Senior Services Society, Edmond's Community Centre, and Harmony Court Care Centre. Currently Yvonne is volunteering at the George Derby Centre where she can be found doing any number of activities with seniors.

What the professionals say:

As a former volunteer manager I met Yvonne in 2005 when she came into our office to volunteer her time with our seniors. During the interview I sensed her compassionate nature and knew she would make an excellent companion for seniors wanting to maintain their independence. Yvonne was matched with a client and through contact with this client I knew she found Yvonne to be trustworthy, considerate, kind, communicated clearly, and always conducted herself with integrity and often went out of her way to be more than helpful. I know that Yvonne continues to be passionate about helping seniors maintain their quality of life. I feel Yvonne has chosen the right career path and will be an excellent, friendly companion. I highly recommend her as your caring companion.
