The traditional meaning of the word concierge refers to an in-house caretaker of an apartment complex or small hotel. Hotels have expanded on the meaning by creating an employee position for a person that assists guest by arranging tours, making theater and restaurant reservations, giving directions, arranging transportation, and generally serving the needs and desires of the hotel guests. Today’s meaning of the word encompasses more than all of that. Concierge services are now being used by business people, busy adults from all walks of life, and seniors who need a little help getting things done.
