Companionship care varies significantly from person to person, but generally aims to reduce or prevent loneliness in an elderly person who might otherwise become isolated. This type of care can vary from several hours a day to just a few hours a week, and can make a huge difference to the day-to-day outlook of someone who would be totally alone
Our carers can offer you companionship care in a range of ways. You decide what you want to do, and this can involve reading a book together and talking about it—sort of like starting your own book club. Play chess, watch your favourite TV series with a friend, and discuss it. Taking a stroll, attending social gatherings, the theatre, or the movies. Having a dinner together, going shopping, or making the world right over a cup of tea. The simple things in life that are worthwhile
Our carers will additionally be able to assist with food preparation and minor housework if that is also required.
A companionship carer would be utilised in supplementary to a normal carer if personal care or other healthcare requirements were needed.
The presence of a companion who can call for help if something is wrong is an additional advantage of companionship care.
