What is Companionship or Companion Care?

Companion care is one of our most requested services and provides much-needed support to those that might be feeling lonely or isolated. Having someone pop in regularly for a chat and a cup of tea can make all the difference if you're finding it difficult to stay socially active.

Studies show that human interaction can prevent the detrimental effects loneliness can have on a person’s physical and mental health. Many of our clients just want conversation and company and that's where our companionship service comes in. We can provide a regular friendly face to help improve your well being and give you and your loved ones peace of mind, particularly if they aren't local.

  • Accompanying you to leisure activities or social commitments
