What is Companion Care?

Companion Care involves a Carer visiting you or your loved one at home to provide valuable social interaction. Our Home Care services aren’t just about supporting Personal Care or complex needs. Our Companion Care enables you or your loved one to continue enjoying the things you love most about your life at home.

As people get older, many experience elderly loneliness. Life can be more challenging without someone to talk to regularly. This is often the case if you or your loved one live alone or far from family and friends. Sometimes, all it takes is spending time with a friendly face.

With Companion Care, one of our friendly Carers will regularly visit you or your loved one for a cup of tea and a chat, a day trip to a favourite place, or a walk in the park. At Alina Homecare, our care is tailored to meet your or your loved one’s exact needs. We consider your preferences, interests and hobbies and aim to match you with a like minded Companionship Carer.

Receiving Companion Care at Home can make a positive difference, supporting you or your loved one to live the life you want.

Your home. Your care. Your choice.

Why choose Companion Care?

Companion Home Care for the elderly aims to decrease feelings of loneliness for you or your loved one. According to Age UK, over 1.4 million older people in the UK are often lonely.1 A lot of the time, this begins after losing a significant relationship, living alone or struggling to find opportunities for meaningful social interaction.

Unfortunately, social isolation and loneliness can have a negative impact on mental health. As a result, this can also affect physical health and can lead to difficulty concentrating and insomnia.2 Having an elderly companion can make all the difference and help improve quality of life.

At Alina Homecare, we provide regular companionship for you or your loved one to make a positive difference in your day. Whatever support you need, care can be tailored to your individual requirements. Whether you want someone to visit you or your loved one at home for companionship, someone to challenge at chess or to accompany you or your loved one on regular days out, we can help.
