This service is most suited to people who will benefit from having companionship and support when family members and friends are unable to visit regularly. Our carers will provide company and conversation, help you keep in contact with friends and assist with social activities. We provide you and your family with the reassurance that you are being visited regularly and maintaining your normal daily routine.
Our Social Companionship service includes:
If you live alone having a chat and a cup of tea with someone can be an important part of the day. Whether you want to spend time looking through old family albums, watch television or go out for short walks, our carers can provide you with the support and companionship to make your day more enjoyable.
Whether you are going to the doctors, visiting friends, attending church or a local club meeting, our carers can help you organise activities and accompany you whenever necessary. If you are entertaining friends at home they can help you to prepare food and drinks, and tidy up after everyone has gone!
Having the reassurance that someone is coming to see you on a daily basis can often help to reduce feelings of anxiety. If you have trouble keeping track of what you need to do and when, our carers can offer support. This could include reminders to do things such as attend doctor's appointments, send birthday cards, feed the cat or when to take your medication.
Day Trips Out
We can organise and accompany you on any trip you may wish to make – be it for an hour or a full day. Whether you are planning a trip to a museum or local park, our carers will give you the personal attention needed to ensure your safety and well-being.
Our carers can assist you with light housekeeping tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, washing, ironing and changing bed linen. In addition, they can help you with meal preparation, taking into account your food preferences and desired meal times. They can also assist with your food shopping when required.
It can be difficult for you to look after your pets as you would like. Our carers can provide help and support with feeding, visits to the groomers, walking the dog and veterinary appointments.
