Our Story

Headshot of Diane Mondini.

No cookie-cutter franchise approach when it comes to your loved one. Just our personal promise to provide a higher level of care.

Diane Mondini, Founder & CEO

Diane began her professional life as a medical technician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. At Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, she majored in Allied Health. Diane worked for American Retirement Villas and Manor Care as a business administrator in their assisted living facilities. It was then that she obtained her Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) license and began to form her ideas on alternative approaches for senior care.

Not long ago, assisted living facilities or nursing homes were the only choices for seniors who needed help. Today, most seniors and their families prefer to stay at home and find in-home caregivers to be an affordable alternative.

Diane established Caring Companions At Home January 1999 because she wanted to provide a higher level of in-home care and companionship. At that time, there were only a handful of in-home care companies in Orange County, California.

People noticed the difference immediately!

As business grew, we expanded and in 2001 we opened offices in East Texas to serve the communities of Tyler and Athens. In 2004, we added an office in the desert community of La Quinta to better serve Riverside County and the Coachella Valley, and in 2013 we added the Inland Empire.

We remain an independently owned and locally operated in-home care company. There is no big corporate office making caregiving decisions.  No cookie-cutter franchise approach when it comes to your loved one. Just our personal promise to provide a higher level of care.
