“Hello, my name is Dr. James Boltz. Some people call me “doc”…I prefer just Jim. I am a “young” retired dentist, and to the sadness of my very large patient clientele in Iowa, I recently moved to my new little bit of Paradise right here in the middle of Longboat Key.

I feel fortunate to offer my many talents to Jeff and ROYAL TREATMENT LLC, in a way that is exciting, refreshing, and most of all, helpful to those who would enjoy the company of being around an eclectic, outgoing, positive, talented, pleasant, personable guy.

Having traveled to over 65 countries, I can relate to those who have done the same or have visited them vicariously through books and travel logs. I play the piano, and have knowledge of politics, sports, antiques and the arts. Being in the medical profession for over 35 years, you will find me very knowledgeable. You will also find that I am a great cook, and extremely detailed oriented. I have been blessed with the gift of helps. It will be my pleasure to be a joyful and helpful companion. I do miss the daily interaction of my many patients, and am hopeful that through ROYAL TREATMENT all of our lives will become more enjoyable.

We deserve it!”

“Hello, my name is Kandyce Lopez and I just recently became a companion with The Royal Treatment. I am excited and flattered to be a part of Jeff’s group, especially because of his high standards for quality care! I am 23 years old and I am a recent graduate from the University of Central Florida. I obtained my Bachelors of Sciences and since then have been pursuing my passion in the health field. I am CNA certified and have worked as a Medical Assistant for the past year. Prior to working for a physician’s office I worked in Home Health, and to this day I keep in touch with the patients I cared for. Each of them have a special place in my heart as they have helped me grow and learn as an individual.

If you are looking for a compassionate companion with a sense of humor than I may be the right girl for you! I am pet friendly, fluent in Spanish, and enjoy playing the guitar during my free time. Should I be fortunate enough to walk alongside you in your daily endeavors not only will you have a kind companion, but a friend.”

“Greetings. My name is Anita and I am blessed to be a part of Jeff’s team at The Royal Treatment. I couldn’t have found a better fit for my passion than I did when I found Jeff and his company. He is a true example of kindness and empathy.

I have been in the Hospitality Industry for many years and discovered my passion for caring for our seniors when I took over the care of an elderly friend. I affectionately referred to him as “Pops.” Caring for Pops changed my life and opened my eyes to what I considered the lack of compassion and respect for people that have earned the right to be pampered and adored. Spending time in Assisted Living Facilities and bringing a smile to a sweet seniors face is all that I need. The work is very rewarding and fills my heart with joy. I know that I have found the perfect fit with The Royal Treatment, with our Missions being exact.

I have been in the golf business for many years as a Food & Beverage Manager. I am also a gourmet cook and a Certified Spinning Instructor. I believe in a healthy mind, body and spirit. I am very active; love the beach, animals, creating meals, and the arts.

I hope to meet each and every one of you. The time that I will be able to spend with you will be a gift to me.

“Hello, I am Wendy Daugherty and I’m very excited to be on The Royal Treatment’s “Team of awesome companions”. I am 39 years old, the mother of two fabulous children, and my husband and I just recently celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary! Besides my family; my joy in life is helping others. I adore animals, and I love movies, books, music, games, comedy, and long talks.

I look forward to every new day. One of my favorite quotes is: “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. That’s why we call today The Present!”

“I look forward to unwrapping the gift with you!”

“When I read Jeff’s website,, for the first time, I realized I could empathized with his motivation to form this very unique company. His ‘story’ sounds much like mine with my mother. She had osteoporosis and later several strokes. My husband and I brought her into our home and took turns between our jobs caring for her needs and wants until she died in 2008. I understood his motivation for starting this company. I say congratulations to Jeff for not only having the idea (those come easy for many) but for making it happen. He saw a need and fulfilled it.

I am a retired RN (graduated from Columbia University, NYC) who gave up my license after 25 years to manage my husband’s computer company. When we closed that business in St. Louis, we moved to Florida thinking we would ‘retire’ early. I quickly realized I am not the ‘retiring’ type. So, in evaluating my attributes I combined my nursing expertise and my experience in caring for my mother and realized that I would be a good caregiver/companion.

I am conscientious, trustworthy, reliable, punctual, friendly, intelligent, very respectful, and loyal; all the qualities that Jeff requires of his companions. Jeff has a unique ability to ‘read’ people and he saw those qualities in me. So I was overjoyed when Jeff asked me to join his team at The Royal Treatment.”
