Companion Care

Companion Care

Sometimes the most important care we deliver is a simple cup of a tea and chatAccording to Age UK, there are reportedly 1.4 million elderly people chronically lonely in the UK.1 Many go long periods of time without having a conversation with someone, which is why companions for the elderly are so important. Our companion services aim to prevent feelings of loneliness and support you to gain the confidence you need to live the life you want.   

Why choose Companion Care?

Having others to rely on to do the grocery shopping or who are there at the end of the phone for a chat, can make a positive difference to people’s lives. However, if a bereavement or relocation means they are no longer there, life can become a little more challenging. Having a care companion can make a great difference to your quality of life, supporting you to get back on track and live the life you want again.

Making life easier

Our Companion Care services

Companion Care is unique to each individual. Whether you just want someone at home for company and to share your thoughts and feelings with, or perhaps some company when you go out, we can help. Companion care is specific to you and where you are at in your life. Companion Care can also involve:

Hobbies and activities
Sharing your favourite hobbies and activities with someone who enjoys them too is great fun so wmake sure to match you with companionship carers best suited to you and the things you enjoy doing, because matching a golfing enthusiast to a keen knitter isn’t a natural fit! We make every effort to make the best connections, so that you get the most out of your time together. 

We also believe that age is but a number and there is no time like the present to start a new hobby. Your care team will support you all the way and help you to achieve your new goals.  

Social events
Our care companions are great at socialising and can accompany you to family eventsday trips out and friendly catch ups. Sometimes having someone by your side, gives you the confidence you need. 

Running errands 
Whether it be shopping trips, going to appointments or picking up a parcel from the post office, our carers can accompany you throughout your daily tasks.   

Managing household tasks  
Sometimes it’s the simple pleasures like clean bed sheets and a warm meal that can help us feel more comfortable and in control of our lives. Our companion services support you to make life easier and provide your loved ones with the reassurance that you are healthy and safe when they are not around.

Dad has had a shower each day this week & the house looks neat & tidy. What a difference! Thought all care companies would be the same. Glad to be so wrong.
