Koudjo Aregba is our featured caregiver this month. Out of all of our wonderful caregivers, he has been with Senior Helpers the longest…for eight years. He is trained to provide companion, personal and dementia care and is in demand. Everyone loves him and asks for him by name. He is very gentle and kind.
When asked why he works for Senior Helpers, Koudjo replied “I love helping seniors, love being around them. They always have interesting stories to tell. I’m very happy with my company, Senior Helpers.”
“Koudjo is fabulous as always. We think of him like family as he is so warm and compassionate. I can't say enough about his attitude and how he cares for both of [my parents].”
