FAQ

What is a Concierge?

The word Concierge evolved from the French word Comte Des Cierges, The Keeper of the Candles, who tended to visiting nobles of the medieval era.  Today a Concierge is a caretaker that solves problems, provides information and provides individual services.  These services can be time management, errands, or daily tasks. Concierges can be found in hotels, hospitals, apartments, private homes and businesses.

How can a Concierge help me?

A concierge can solve a host of problems for the average person.  For the busy employee, a concierge can take care of errands such as grocery shopping, drug store runs, dry cleaning drop off and pick, or meal pick up.  A concierge can also wait for repair calls or deliveries. This allows more time for what truly matters, family, friends and relaxation.  A Senior Concierge takes care of day to day tasks that are non medical in nature such as companionship, note taking during appointments, phone calls, preparing bills and auditing medical bills.
