If I could give them a 10-star rating I would. Our family unofficially "adopted" everyone providing care to our mother as a member of our family; our mother didn't like to refer to her caregivers as caregivers, she referred to them as her "pearls." Their love, passion and commitment to the health and well-being of our mother could not have been more professional and personal. I give this company the highest possible rating; I can't think of anything they could have done better.

Elsie Shields is from Greensboro, NC and has been a resident of Wilmington since 1995. She owned a gourmet kitchen shop with her husband for 10 years and enjoyed providing services that consistently exceeded the expectations of her customers. Her high energy and passion for providing food, comfort, and love to her customers brought joy to the people around her. 

In the summer of 2013, Elsie launched Always Good Company Home Care, Inc. Through this business, Elsie shares her love of taking good care of people and bringing smiles to faces. AGC is one of the leading agencies for elderly home care in Wilmington. Elsie treats each customer as family and goes to great lengths to meet the needs of her clients. This very same level of commitment to kindness is expected from her staff. Always Good Company Home Care, Inc. is a small, client-centered business, allowing Elsie the opportunity to provide very individualized attention and supervision to all of her families.


Our home companions like to stay busy, helping you or your loved one with everything from errands to meal preparation.


We work hard to pair you or your loved one with a compatible caregiver who shares common interests. Our team members are compassionate, and distinguish themselves by going above and beyond to establish meaningful relationships. 


Always Good Company strives to keep the same caregiver with each client as much as scheduling will allow.


The majority of people want to remain in their homes as they age. Our elder home care services allow us to provide custom support for our clients as well as respite for family caregivers. We offer a little help when you need it most. We specialize in trustworthy, friendly, and compassionate non-medical home health care for the elderly, helping Wilmington seniors maintain meaningful and active lifestyles.

Our compassionate staff of male and female caregivers are carefully screened, insured, and bonded.

I am so grateful that Always Good Company provides male caregivers. My husband can have "guy time" with Val, getting out of the house doing things he enjoys, while getting the personal care, like a close shave in the morning, that he needs. Thank you for providing peace of mind!!

Finding a good, reliable company to ensure loved ones are taken care of can be difficult, but Always Good Company is the answer!

The owner, Elsie, truly cares about both her clients and team. Elsie and her team treat all of their clients as if they were their own family, tending to each client's specific needs with individualized day-to-day care.

I am definitely grateful to have found such a great company, and would recommend it to anyone :)

A special message from Brad Garrett, the comedic genius from Everybody Loves Raymond

More than anything else, Always Good Company is about forging relationships. Our care for clients goes well beyond the defined parameters of a particular shift. You’ll find our caregivers taking their clients out for a birthday lunch or just stopping by to check on someone, even when they’re not technically “on the clock.” You can’t do this job well unless you show a genuine interest in the individuals you care for — and that’s what sets our team apart. It’s also the part I’m most proud of.
