A Concierge, Your Personal Assistant

This is a repost of one of our first posts (2019), as a refresher of what it is we do for our clients at 5 Star Concierge, LLC. It is our delight to serve our clients as personal assistants - creating a custom plan for your individual needs. As a family member, one way of thinking of us is"Rent a Daughter, Rent a Son" when you can't be with your loved one.


So what exactly is a Concierge or a Senior Concierge? What do they do and who do they do it for? These are good questions and I’ll give you some answers here today. A concierge is: a caretaker, a custodian, a janitor, often the owner’s representative.


Let us help you check off your to-do list!


In today’s modern world, it takes on the definition of a personal assistant, a helper, an errand runner and much more.
