Friendly Companionship

What is Friendly Companionship?

Everyone needs a social connection. Social isolation and loneliness have been shown to be hazardous to our health and well-being. Loneliness has the same negative impact on our health as smoking 15 cigarettes every day (Holt-Lunstad, 2015). Care & Carers provides trained carers who have proved their capacity to effectively connect with others and assist them in overcoming loneliness and being self-sufficient. We will work with our clients to create a companionship plan that reflects their tastes and aspirations. Some of these activities could be

  • Visits to leisure centres
  • Playing games
  • Going out for walks
  • Visits to cultural events
  • Assisting with preparation for major occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays.
  • Basic workouts at home
  • Gardening together
  • Reading
  • Playing music
  • Video calling with relatives and friends

You can live a full and independent life with quality companionship services suited to your individual preferences and requirements. Your one-of-a-kind companionship support package will be tailored to your specific needs. Almost everything that isn't medical or personal care can be included in this bundle of companion care. All of our carers are trained, supervised, thoroughly vetted, and insured whether they are providing regulated work or not.
