Companionship Care Services

Companionship is an important part of all care visits.


Spending time in the company of others is very important for all of us, it is critical to our health and wellbeing. Most of us would be at a bit of a loss and feel lonely if we didn’t have the opportunity to interact with others. A chat over a cup of tea can be a powerful tonic in itself. And a stroll out and about is good for the constitution.

Understanding companionship needs

Everyone’s situation is different. Some of our clients have been bereaved and now find themselves living alone with family at some distance. Others are suffering from a physical or mental condition that has meant they have become more isolated, finding it difficult to get out and about to do the things that they used to love doing.

Some of our clients are cared for by their spouses who themselves need some respite. We can give them peace of mind as we take their loved ones out for an enjoyable few hours.

When we meet a client for the first time we conduct an assessment of their needs. Key to that assessment is understanding each client’s background, their family and career history, where they have travelled and lived, what hobbies they have an interest in.

For each client we put together a person-centred care plan, finding the right carers to match that client and scoping out what a companionship visit might include.

Person-centred companionship

We have a range of activities that we might take part in with our clients. These might include accompanying them on their weekly trip to the supermarket, going to a garden centre, having some coffee & cake or perhaps lunch whilst out and about. We might drive to a country park for a walk, to feed the ducks, or for a stroll by the seaside.

Some of our clients have dogs who we might take out with us. We have even brought together lifelong friends who haven’t been able to meet face-to-face for a long time. Anything is possible.

Once our carers and clients get to know each other there are always shared experiences and connections that make for a richer and deeper relationship.

Our carers come from all walks of life, with interesting and varied careers and backgrounds, which means they are able to interact well with our clients, to lift their spirits.
