Who We Are
Dr. Anamaria Cobo, Ed.D. is the Director of A Trusted Family Companion, a locally owned non-franchised senior care companion company. We serve in Delaware and Chester County and also in the Mainline area
and surrounding areas. Dr. Anamaria Cobo brings a rich blend of experience from her work a the University of Pennsylvania and Swarthmore College. Dr. Cobo formerly worked at the Media Wellness Center where she managed the Brain Gauge Assessment program - Brain Gauge is a cognitive assessment tool that uses touch-based sensory testing to measure brain health.
Dr. Cobo has also served as a caregiver for many years. She is Alzheimer's care certified and has vast
experience in dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia. Dr. Cobo also worked closely with seniors with disabilities. We not only provide companion care but also strive to reduce compassion fatigue by providing coaching for family members. This makes us unique compared to other service providers as we work with the entire family and not just the care recipient.
"To say I am passionate about our elderly is an understatement. They are our history and our soul. I, for one, am committed to ensuring their senior years are respected and are as productive as possible. I look forward to helping your loved one and becoming a part of your care network!"
Dr. Anamaria Cobo, Ed.D.
Owner, Care Companion Coordinator
Our companions act as a trusted partner to your aging family member while offering a friendly ear and capable hands. Whether it is playing cards or accompanying them to a doctor's appointment, your loved ones will benefit from the caring companionship. As companions we act as extensions to your family, helping to bring peace of mind and quality of life in the home, hospital or healthcare facility setting. Our greatest added value is in the selection process and identification of our care companions.
Our companions are sensitive and conscientious people such as housewives, graduate students or retired individuals. Each caregiver is trained and is required to attend continuing education that we provide. We take great pride in finding the right companion match for each care recipient depending on personality, interests and desired needs. Our evaluations are performed in the comfort of senior's homes or care facilities and allow our Care Coordinator to evaluate the client's needs for companion care while becoming familiar with their individual interests.
All of our caregivers are insured and bonded and must successfully complete an extensive screening process before being hired. This includes:
Criminal background check
Motor vehicle check when needed
Competency training prior to being hired and annually thereafter
